polite records things

There are a few bits and pieces to report regarding Polite Records. Last week, Tiger & Panda published two digital things. 

Sleeper Train is the last song we recorded with David 'Ox' Burke and we made a music video to go with it. It is a fan video tribute to the BBC series of Smiley's people, based on the novel by John Le Carre. You get a free download of the video when you purchase the digital single, and you can watch it here.

We also published a free two track instrumental thing in tribute to our friends Kate and David (David being 'Ox') who moved to Dublin this year. The free download comes with some band photos.

Thirdly, Grizzly and the Bears are very proud to be playing at the first UK PRFstival at the Bristol County Sports Club on Saturday the 29th of September. We are playing at 9.30pm after an evening of great bands.

Finally, a few months ago I was contacted by the British library, asking me for archive copies of the whole Polite Records back catalogue. I've been dropping instalments of records off every month or so since then and it is the most exciting thing ever! We have Steve Brett at Stitch-Stich Records to thank for letting the British Library know about us.
