Live The Dream





For those who don't know what is up, Fierce Panda is one of the coolest labels in the world. Pressed in limited edtions only numbering 1000, the label showcases many new, baby bands that later easily prove their merit. Past acts that featured on the label are Bis, Placebo, Kenickie, and 3 Colours Red, not to mention the forever essential "Wibbling Rivalry" EP Fierce Panda released, a permanent snapshot of the vitriolic relationship between the Gallagher brothers of Oasis. The label's most recent offering, a 16-track amalgamation of punk, indie and dance tracks entitled Live The Dream culls together such disperate acts as Modesto, CA's Fiver, recent Nettwerk label signees Seafood, Northwestern indie kids Death Cab For Cutie, and UK androgynites Phonotype, as well as Player .032 alumni, The Music. The bottom line is this: Fierce Panda continues its five-plus year string of compiling excellent up-and-coming bands to feed to A&R peeps and consumers alike: feed from the Fierce Panda food web while there is still time...
