Tiger Trap


Bratmobile/Tiger Trap Split 7"

Bratmobile - Throwaway b/w Tiger Trap - Words and Smiles

Four Letter Words FLW-008, released 1992

Tiger Trap's first appearance is, to this day, the toughest of their records to find.  Quite a debut...I don't know if something happened with these sleeves on the front end, but every one I have ever seen has either had a water stain on it or been very wrinkly. Maybe it is because all of the sleeves were silk-screened onto normal paper. I love how the sleeve says "two dollars do not pay more"...good luck with that. I have seen two variations on the silk-screened sleeves. They are identical except there appears to be a gold background added to one of them. The ones with the gold are far less common, as far as I can tell. Black vinyl.
