Air Miami - Fuck You, Tiger 7"

Air Miami – Fuck You, Tiger 7”
Teen Beat, 1995
Acquired: Love Garden, Used, 2008
Price: $2

Oh man, this is a pretty big departure from the quite Unresty “Airplane Rider” 7” and not nearly as good. Where are my jangly, chimy guitars! WHERE ARE THEY! I understand the concept of progress, moving forward, all that, but “I Hate Milk” sound so dated. Like the worst part of the mid 90s. “Warm Miami May” is a synthesized snooze, “Afternoon Train” sounds like a Young Marble Giants parody (minus any sort of artsy charm) and “See Through Plastic” is...well, really fucking good. The guitar is back, and it's a slow, pretty little ditty that really makes me wonder what the hell was going on with the first three songs. I mean, you get a guitar tone that good, you oughta use it as often as possible! Anyway, this 7” sounds like a sonic experiment and while I absolutely love the title, there's only one song here I'd ever listen to again.

The album version of "I Hate Milk" is a little better, but the video oh man.


  1. i can't help but wonder why the song afternoon train was ever recorded, and then, sent out into the world. talk about waste.

  2. Sounds like you're not not into their more 'mellow' sound. The EPs were always a chance for 4AD artists to experiment too so they were always pretty niche-y. I love this EP.
