"Speed the Plough" was unapologetic and sweaty: England claiming its place in the world."
- journalist David Honigman describing a Tiger Moth performance

Tiger Moth began just as an all-star recording unit, bringing together musicians who had played in many notable bands of the 'new wave of English country dance music' in the '70s and early '80s including the Old Swan Band, the New Victory Band, the English Country Blues Band, Cock & Bull, the Albion Band, Jumpleads and Oak. But their first single and debut album caused such a demand that they happily became a gigging entity and for the next five years roared around UK festival ceilidhs, revered or feared for their noisy, no-holds-barred, improvisational approach.
