Hailing from tiny Whitley Bay in the Northeast of England, the TYGERS OF PAN TANG were formed when singer Jess Cox met guitarist Robb Weir in November 1978. Weir, along with bassist Rocky and drummer Brian Dick, had recently formed a band combining the lessons of early-'70s heavy metal legends with the do-it-yourself ethos of punk - a style eventually dubbed the New Wave of British Heavy Metal.
The foursome released first single 'Don't Touch Me There' in September 1979. Debut album "Wildcat" went straight into the British charts at #18.
Looking to beef up their sound, the band added virtuoso guitarist John Sykes.
But singer Cox decided to quit the group at year's end to form the short-lived LIONHEART with recently ousted IRON MAIDEN guitarist Dennis Stratton. Ex-PERSIAN RISK vocalist Jon Deverill was drafted to replace him.
Widely considered their best album, "Spellbound" hit the streets in April 1981 followed by "Crazy Nights". Sykes quit to join THIN LIZZY. The band soldiered on with new six-stringer Fred Purser and issued "The Cage" album. The management dropped the band just prior to a sold-out tour of Japan. The group decided to call it quits later that year.
