In the Time of the Sabre-toothed Tiger
[engl] After the demise of the Ooga Boogas in the Before Time, the four band members went their very separate ways. Being in that band was such an intense high pressure experience, some chillax time was well- deserved.
Stacky recorded under the name Leon, Per joined Voice Imitator, Mikey recorded with The Green Child and Rich played in Drug Sweat. All quite deserving projects, but it was Leon's solo outing that garnered the most interest from public and industry alike. The demand for live shows led Leon to recruit Per from Ooga Boogas and a guy
named Brad into his touring lineup.
The trio was red hot, but inevitably the venues they filled required a fuller sound so Leon recruited Mikey from Ooga Boogas on second guitar. The gruelling touring schedule became too much for family-man Brad, so Rich from Ooga Boogas jumped in to fill his size 11s and off they went for another lap of regional Victoria.
Eventually the question presented itself to this freshly-minted foursome: should they continue as Leon's backing band or
strike out anew with a fresh identity? The answer came in a moniker
too electrifying to resist; a name as clever, enigmatic and indeed, as powerful as the band itself. Power Supply.
Back in the shed, jams became songs, jokes became lyrics and
long afternoons spent together became the record you're now half- listening to while you yearn for your inbox. Listen though, and you'll hear life through the lens of Leon and the tactile tentacles of his pals. In
The Time of the Sabre-toothed Tiger
contains ten songs that listen so easy, you'll barely notice when they're gone.
