Tiger Trap was a all-female indie pop foursome composed of high school friends Rose Melberg and Angie Loy, 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, United States in 1992, they managed to garner something of a cult following before disbanding only a year later in 1993. 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.
