Towards the end of 2002, five guys, all in their early twenties, founded the band Timid Tiger in Cologne, Germany. What's this all about, anyway? Well, Timid Tiger's a band. Half man, half tiger. In color and with real stripes. From a world just like yours. With talking pianos and singing sweetmeat swags. Posh consolation giraffes and stentorian terry cloth saucers. No path too near, no path too far.
