Tygers of Pan Tang formed in 1978 in Whitley Bay and became a significant player in the NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal) movement.

They released their own independent single, Don't Touch Me There in 1980 and were rapidly snapped up by MCA Records.

Guitarist John Sykes went on to Thin Lizzy and Whitesnake.
