TIG435 - Khombora Mina (1991)

Tiger/RPM, TIGLP435       
Producer: Humphrey Mabote   
Engineers: Isaac Matobela, TJ Mosia, LB Rhikhto   
Recorded at: RPM   

Arguably the only band to be named after the serial number on their album, TIG435 served up distinctive frantic Shangaan beats and rolling synths in the style of Splash, the Dalom Kids or Joshiba. Highlights include 'Makoti', the title track and 'Gimba'.
