Hungry Tiger- Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum

Hungry Tiger- Fee -Fi-Fo-Fum/ Tic Tac Toe –White Whale WW -313 (1969 US)

Hooky, brash and tight as F**k is the most accurate way to describe the driving catchiness which is Fee -Fi-Fo-Fum . The Hungry Tiger single is as much a Bubblegum classic as it is a “Mod Dance floor Filler” (although the poor dears would probably ruin their tight jackets in their over-exuberance)- but just dig the loud drums and tight arrangement with its kick ass horns. One of the many fascinating White Whale releases, but who was the band? Any relation to Professor Morrison’s Lollipop? The B side Tic Tac Toe is not the Magid Triplets tune, but a moody Garage Folk Rock number with its song writing credit appropriated by Kasenetz/Katz as was often custom...

Nice tracks Robin - haven't come across the band before - thought the B-side had a touch of Troggs about it.
