Tiger Trap was an all-female twee-pop foursome composed of high school friends Angie Loy and Rose Melberg, with Heather Dunn and Jen Braun. The group recorded for K Records. The name “Tiger Trap” comes from the very first Calvin and Hobbes cartoon. Formed in Sacramento, California in 1992, they managed to garner something of a cult following before disbanding only a year later. Along with Beat Happening, Lois Maffeo, Tullycraft, and Black Tambourine they are considered to be one of the most influential bands of the American twee pop movement. Melberg went on to become a solo artist as well as playing with the bands The Softies, Go Sailor, and Gaze.
