It's a TVD Fall Vinyl Giveaway | Little Fish, 'Darling Dear' Maxi-Single 7"

My mom used to run that old line on me all the time, “Well, mister – if EVERYone jumped off a bridge, would YOU?” To which the answer was always no, I guess.

But if EVERYone was talking about a new band you HAVE to hear...would you? To which the answer is well, ...sometimes.

So, let’s get you ahead of the curve and introduce you to Little Fish — before they make their big splash:

"Great to see a rock band focusing on melody rather than senseless riffery….they certainly pack a punch."
—London Daily Star

"Everybody's new favourite band Little Fish."
—Oxford Mail

"My new Patti Smith. Juju has an amazing voice"
—Gaz Coombes, Supergrass

"Twice as good as the best unsigned act you've ever heard... and then some."
—Tim Bearder, BBC Radio Oxford

"When it comes to hearing good new bands for the first time, there's sit-up-and- take-notice music and there's jump-up-and-accidentally-bang-your-head-on-the- ceiling music. Little Fish are the first, immediately transposed by the second."
—Dave, BBC Radio Oxford

"Little Fish are destined to rule the airwaves."
—BBC Radio Oxford

"It took Juju 6.9 seconds, wearing a wife-beater suggestively perked in two places, her brilliant vocals, wicked guitar playing and hard accompanying drums to turn us all into a Sex Pistol. Little Fish is music's missionary position and why they're NOT on NME's list of New Bands to watch in 2008 is beyond me. I would definitely make space for Little Fish."
—Hugh Tomasz, Tavern Times

Little Fish is a duo; one half is guitarist, singer, and songwriter Juju, the other half is Nez, powerhouse drummer. They release their Linda Perry-produced LP ‘Baffled & Beat’ in 2010, but we’ve got the advance single for one savvy commenter to this post who’s 180-degrees ahead of the curve.

Download the single below and shoot us your raves about that band in this post’s comments (with contact info—IMPORTANT!) and we’ll award the single to the most insightful of the bunch. You’ve got ‘til Friday at noon...

I have to say Juju is super hot and that album cover is just as awesome as her singing! This would be a awesome add to my collection!

I'd never heard of this band before. Juju's voice seems like an odd yet completely complimentary combination of Chrissie Hynde and Courtney Love. How's that for alliteration! Not being particularly interested in neither Hole nor The Pretenders, I found myself pleasantly suprised that I actually liked this track. The powerful beat provided by Nez works well to steer the song into an explosively expressive ending.

This is the kind of thumping, screeching, chaotic rock I can get behind. The very sleek looking, James Bond-esque artwork is also a nice treat for the eyes. I'd love to have this vinyl!

Insight? Well to be honest I'm playing DJ for a bunch of 5th graders right now. I'm playing Cupid Shuffle,not by choice. So as I sit here and watch them learn how to do the Cupid shuffle" i'm learning about your site for the first time. I love vinyl and would love to hear this.
