'The Brothers' 7" Pink Colour Vinyl Single Track Listing:
A. Brothers & Sisters
B. Easy To Please

Coldplay consist of Guy Berryman (bass)
Jonny Buckland (guitar)
Will Champion (drums / vocals) and Chris Martin (vocals / guitar). On April 26th 1999 they released the ‘Brothers & Sisters’ EP on fierce panda records and then…well
then things went a bit weird.

To celebrate the anniversary of the release fierce panda is launching a perky pre-order of a reissue which is expected to reach planet panda on July 12th 2019. The original ‘Brothers & Sisters’ release was a two-track 7” (‘Brothers & Sisters’ and ‘Easy To Please’) and a three track compact disc single
with ‘Only Superstition’ as the third song. The catalogue number was NING 68. Both limited edition formats sold out immediately
with ‘Brothers & Sisters’ roaring into the charts at number 92.

We suspect demand for CD singles these days is somewhat diminished by the vagaries of technology. So after a bit of hi-fallutin’ pencil-chewing in the top secret second panda office (ie the White Swan on Highbury Corner
N1 1RY) we came up with a sweet way of delivering all three tracks in one fresh manner across two limited edition gender-smashing coloured vinyl 7” singles
as outlined above. The two singles will be released on the same day and are therefore available to PRE-ORDER simultaneously – either separately or as a double trouble bundle - on April 26th.

Aside from a version of ‘Brothers & Sisters’ appearing on their ‘Trouble’ single a year later on Parlophone
legend (and the global internet) has it that these three tracks have barely been touched by the hand of Coldplay since released. In which case 7” single aficionados may like to know that this is the first
and quite possibly
only time that ‘Only Superstition’ has ever been
or indeed ever will be
released on vinyl.

The fierce panda label is itself currently celebrating its 25th anniversary
which means they were not even five years old when they first encountered Coldplay at the Camden Falcon in November 1998. Fascinatingly scruffed at the edges they were too (the band
not the label
although…)
and ‘Shiver’ and ‘Bigger Stronger’ alone suggested an epically subtle song-crafting potential that was to hold them in pretty good stead for the next two decades.

The panda was instantly smitten and over the following six months they were to book Coldplay into Station Studios in Southgate to record the three ‘Brothers & Sisters’ tunes. They also booked them in to open the year of gigs at Pandamonium ’99 at the Bull & Gate on January 7th
followed by a headline show at the very same Kentish Town venue on April 1st. In between days Coldplay were introduced to the airwaves by Radio One’s Evening Session and infiltrated the pages of the NME and generally impressed all and sundry with a mix of charm
chutzpah
top tunes and the odd cheeky Curly Wurly bar chucked casually into the unsuspecting crowd.

The Falcon venue and Station Studios are long since gone and the Bull & Gate has gone the ghastly way of the gastropub but the fierce panda label lives to fight another exhausperated day. As for the Coldplay band
who could say whatever happened to those unlikeliest of likely lads…?
