If you fancy 'winning' a single-deal with the Panda label, then read on. "All any aspiring musicians have to do is come along to one of the Rain Band/Medium 21 shows and drop their CDR or cassette off in the demo box, which will be positioned on the merchandise stall. The box will be at all fifteen shows, and at the end of the tour will be transported under lock and key to the Temptation/fierce panda headquarters in Holloway, North London. The A&R team will then diligently play each and every demo handed in on the tour, a winner will be picked and that act will be granted the opportunity to release a one-off single on fierce panda, for which fierce panda will pay all recording, manufacturing and marketing costs. The one basic rule is that, by hook or by crook, the demo must find its way into the demo box. No matter the quality of the entries, someone MUST win this competition."
The tour starts on Feb 18th in Cambridge. Full list of dates can be found on Medium 21's profile page here.
Competition rules can be found in the news section on the Panda website.
