Look what i found

October 8, 2010

So several weeks back, i was going through some old boxes back at my mum's house when I stumbled across somthing that looked familiar... Turned out i'd unearthed some the old vinyl EPs I had pressed and self-released a few years ago - these being my first output under the moniker little people... It was a bit of a naive attempt at releasing a record and I ended up undertaking all the distribution myself, travelling around the UK to get my wax into local record shops. The whole operation didn't quite break even and with no promo nor marketing it was hard work trying to shift this stuff. The one big positive though, was that Ian Clifford at Illicit recordings was one of the early adopters... Fast forward a couple years, Ian felt little people should be given their moment... Mickey Mouse Operation is what followed.

I've added what's left of my old EP stock to my online store for whoever might want to have piece of little people history... It contains early versions of Moon, Unsaid, Start shootin' and Gravitas.

As an aside, i found this entertaining mashup someone posted a couple of weeks back. It sees me going head to head with Kanye... Anyone know of any other little people mashups out there?
