Tits, Tats and Whiskers new album, “Laugh, Dance, and Cry” is one raucous track after another. The only way I can describe it is that one kid in class that will bring the most awesome toy to school for show and tell and then use said toy to totally aggravate the teacher tot he delight of every kid in class. This is the very definition of the album and that is a good thing. The opening track, “Grip On Me”, evokes the spirits of Hüsker Dü and fIREHOSE and simply gets better from there on. “Tug Hill” calls on the spirit of Sublime while letting you know all too well that this is Tits, Tats, and Whiskers in all of their glory. Every song has enough of a stylistic change to keep the album interesting while at the same time showing a consistency that only professional, well schooled musicians can accomplish and that is a rare thing these days.

About Tits, Tats and Whiskers:
The Test Drive: Tits, Tats and Whiskers - Laugh, Dance, and CryIn 2011 in Tokyo, Tits Tats & Whisker’s met at artist Ponzi’s (Member of Tits, Tats & Whiskers) painting exhibition. Their mutual love of tattoos, beards, and rock music brought the band together like vagabonds in the wind to park. Jamming covers and drinking sessions inspired studio experimentation and a desire to make original material. Originally composing and performing as a four­piece band Tits, Tats & Whiskers streamlined and became a power trio in 2012.
