Selby Tigers


The band name that the St. Paul, MN, neo-punk quartet the Selby Tigers adopted is an amalgam; a nod to their hometown turf on Selby Avenue, a high-school team mascot, and the aegis of a rebel army. The wildly disparate influences acknowledged in their chosen title are reconciled in their music -- an angst-driven, sociopolitical stew of bratty teenage vocals, snarling guitars, and a thick-necked rhythm section.

The band name that the St. Paul, MN, neo-punk quartet the Selby Tigers adopted is an amalgam; a nod to their hometown turf on Selby Avenue, a high-school team mascot, and the aegis of a rebel army. The wildly disparate influences acknowledged in their chosen title are reconciled in their music -- an angst-driven, sociopolitical stew of bratty teenage vocals, snarling guitars, and a thick-necked rhythm section. After a number of years playing in good bands (Lefty Lucy, Arm,) that, for one reason or another failed to graduate from bars and basements, guitarist Arzu "D2" Gokcen, her husband and second guitarist Nathan Grumdahl, bass player Nicole Gerber, and drummer Dave Gatchell formed the Selby Tigers.

After recording and releasing their eponymous debut EP in 1998, Gerber left the band and was replaced by Impetus Inter alum and popular local recording engineer Dave Gardner (Cows, Unsane, Sean Na Na), with whom the Tigers had recorded their first EP. Gardner, who created the alter ego of the loveably clueless, stereotypical Frenchman Sammy G, added the perfect finishing touch to the Tigers' infectious, eardrum-destroying stage show. After a number of lengthy tours, the band released the somewhat more refined South Then West EP. The Selby Tigers EPs and tireless touring ethic caught the attention of Southern California punk label (and home to fellow Twin City rockers Dillinger Four) Hopeless records, who signed the band in early 2000.

In the spring of that year, Hopeless released a 7" teaser single for their Charm City full-length, which followed later that summer, as did tours with the Alkaline Trio, the Anniversary, and Rocket From the Crypt. ~ Bryan Carroll, All Music Guide Members Arzu - guitars/vocals Nate- guitars/vocals Dave - drums/vocals Dave aka Sammy - bass Discography 2002The Curse of the Selby Tigers 2000Charm City Single/EP 2000Selby Tigers 1999South Then West Also Appears On: 2002Hopelessly Devoted to You, Vol. 4 2001Plea for Peace/Take Action 2001 2000Hopelessly Devoted to You, Vol. 3 Read more on Last.fm.
