Decade: 10 Years Of Fierce Panda





10 years is a mighty long time for an indie label to exist, especially when it never planned on being around that long in the first place. UK tastemakers supreme Fierce Panda celebrate their 10 years of musical mayhem with the plainly stated Decade: 10 Years Of Fierce Panda. Showcasing some of the finest tunes found on the label over the years, Decade features some of the first UK releases ever from greats such as Coldplay, Placebo, The Music, and the Bluetones, as well as more nascent offspring Keane, Death Cab For Cutie and Hundred Reasons. The UK version even throws on early work from Ash, Idlewild, Supergrass, Kenickie and Three Colours Red, tracks that were unable to be included on the US version licensed to Brash Music. In listening to these early versions of great bands, as well as hidden gems from bands not as blatantly in the public spotlight, one thing is most evident: Simon Williams and his partners-in-crime at Fierce Panda sure know a good tune when they hear it.
