I don't know very much about Lion Tamer, but I certainly know what I like, and I'm really digging this. Where the hell was this Richmond, VA trio back in the mid '90s when I was jamming to likeminded, dissonant noise-pop combos like Archers of Loaf, aMINIATURE and Edsel? My guess is the Tamers were sticking close to home, and unfortunately were unbeknownst to me at the time in the pre-social media era. At the very least, this single (perhaps their lone release) offers two bittersweet mementos from the golden age of indie guitar-rawk. If anyone can shed a ray or two of light on these guys, don't be a stranger.
