Hailing from: Madison, WI
BIO: Tiny Daggers played their first show Halloween ’12. Recorded “Heavy Levitation” Halloween ’13. The cassette is set for release Halloween ’14. A fitting last offering for a band that occupied Madison’s punk haunts for far too short a time before tearing itself out of existence. Tiny Daggers quickly became one of my favorite bands. Oklahoma transplant, Nikki Shackelford, transmogrified into an imposing and powerful, flame-throwing punk contessa–backed by blistering veteran punk rhythm section, Tony Daggers (Pyroklast, Deep Shit, Murder of Crows) and Ben Brooks (Poney, Dead Hookers). The trio put a new, furious, spin on the bass/drum combo. Tiny Daggers played their last show New Year’s Eve ’13. Maybe another case of “too weird to live, too rare die”—or maybe “it’s better to burn out, than to fade away”… or maybe “sometimes… dead is bettah.” But anyway you want to put it, this oft-missed Madison band is resurrected (on tape) Halloween ’14.
