A bearly awake fierce panda one sheet

The Release: ‘PLEASE LOOK AFTER THIS BEAR’
The Artists: VARIOUS
The Formats: DIGITAL COMPILATION
The Release Date: FEBRUARY 24TH 2017

The Incomprehensible Truth: these are tough times in the indie firmament, panda people. Record sales are falling off the edge of a crumbling cliff. The remainder of the cliff is tumbling down on top of whatever is left of the music industry standing on a beach, balefully staring at the sea. Time for something slightly different, then…

‘Please Look After This Bear’ is a download compilation which consists of sixteen tracks by sixteen various vivacious recent / current artists released on fierce panda records throughout 2016. It was launched on November 11th on Spotify via http://louderthanwar.com/exclusive-stream-new-fierce-panda-compilation/ and it will be exclusively ‘released’ on a donation basis via www.fiercepanda.co.uk on November 25th whereby we invite you, the panda punter, to pay-what-you-like for music-you-may-love.

That’s right. You can – not quite literally – cough up anything you desire, from one shiny penny to £12.62 (that’s 16 x 79 iTune pennies, fiscal fact fans) or some point in-between, or somewhere way beyond, or whatever the heck you feel, right here:

The ‘Please Look After This Bear’ title and indeed artwork is cribbed from the story of Paddington. The track-listing is in alphabetical order of the acts. Most of these songs are from albums, mini-albums or EPs which came out over the past year and which are available from your favourite digital outlets or www.fiercepanda.co.uk right now. We reckon it sounds pretty lovely, even when it's really angry. That's how we roll...
