Tiger Moth have been around since late 2010. We play a wild mix of world gypsy folk punk, ranging from Balkan to Middle Eastern and Latin to swing, often played at a dizzying speed.... a bass and horn-driven blast of brilliant madness.
They are the world’s primary purveyors of Wiki-core (come and find out!) and can be found gigging across London and the South East. Hold onto your socks.
