If this 1998 tape had been released a decade earlier, then TINGLER might have been heralded as some ground breaking guitar driven noise rock outfit. Tongue in cheek (but not really funny) presentations of mid tempo hook laden tracks bashed out by seriously damaged and dirty stringed weapons. File alongside first wave grunge and early AmRep....you just need a time warp to get it there. I'm thinking this band existed in every college town in the USA by 1994 or so, but this one comes from Toronto, and maybe time is different up there.
