July 17th sees the launch of a brand new monthly co-promotion between fierce panda and The Most Radicalist Black Sheep Music, aka TMRBSM, which is Bartle Bogle Hegarty's (BBH) music arm, which in turn is responsible for sourcing music for one of the world's leading advertising agencies. (Campaign - Agency of the Year; Creative Review - Agency of the Year; Webbys - Agency of the Year; British Arrows / BTAAs - Agency of the Year.)
“We are partnering up with fierce panda/Club Fandango to ensure we're on top of the best new artists in the UK, with the monthly live music nights also being a great opportunity to take BBH employees and clients out, and show them another side of our work. The artists playing these nights will be being seen and heard by the "right" people in advertising (aka TRPIA).”
Wise words all round, and here are the artists for that opening night…
THE CROOKES (onstage 9.30pm) are four handsomely dressed NewPop dudes from the Republic Of Yorkshire who are playing this fearsomely low key show to celebrate the launch of their new fierce panda single, ‘Maybe In The Dark’, out on July 23rd. This supremely svelte event follows the release of their sophomore album ‘Hold Fast’ on July 9th, and collapses most elegantly in the midst of festival appearances at Latitude, Benicassim and Tramlines back home in Sheffield. THE CROOKES’ crisply-ruffled tunes have appeared on ‘Lorraine’, ‘GMTV’, ‘Waterloo Road’, ‘The Big Bang Theory’, ‘Jamie’s Great Britain’ and, obviously, with ruthless regularity during the Monday evening goals round up on ‘Look North’.
THE KABEEDIES (onstage 8.45pm) are from Norwich and have traditionally played fizzbombingly effervescent boy / girl / boy / boy leftfield pop which is bouncy like Tigger in a minefield and found global infamy via their ‘Come On’ track appearing on an Xbox advert. Latterly however they have added a mature sombreness to their sound, as evidenced by current album ‘Soap’ and supersad imminent single ‘Bones’ (released on fierce panda on July 23rd).
PANDA CUBS (onstage 8.00pm) are from York and, amazingly, they don’t have a release coming out on fierce panda in the next half hour. What they do have however is a broody, bruised outlook on musical life which manifests itself in gloriously dark pop outbursts which nod at the shadowy outlines of Editors and Interpol. Shadowy, we say…
