Following the band’s belting return with new single, ‘What
Your Boyfriend Said’ in June, Sheffield’s Little Man Tate are
ready to unleash ‘Nothing Worth Having Comes Easy’, a record
made under testing times, but one that signals an exciting new
dawn for the quartet.
Little Man Tate’s story began in 2006 amid the musical storm
that befell Sheffield. Behind the scenes of his day job at
The Boardwalk, outspoken young vocalist Jon Windle shirked a
career in football to focus his attention on the band. With an
honesty and wit akin to a youthful Damon Albarn, Jon was
writing songs that documented everyday life with lyrics that
twisted, turned and manipulated his observations of the city.
Following a series of sell-out gigs in the city’s basement
venues, the band signed to V2 for their debut album ‘About
What You Know’, released in January 2007. It spawned a Top 20
hit (‘Sexy In Latin’), enjoyed heavy radio rotation and
acclaim, and the gigs were selling out across the country and
beyond to much bigger audiences.
Despite the success, and having sold more records than most of
their new city peers put together, Little Man Tate were one of
the first bands to suffer from the music industry’s major
label cull. However, regrouping and determined to prove
feckless money men wrong, they headed to Sheffield’s
celebrated 2Fly Studios to start work on the new album.
The result is a brave record that Little Man Tate knew they
could achieve, and one without restraint. Bold, brassy and
The giddy testosterone that fuelled their debut is still
ever-present. Relationships, close encounters and fleeting
glances are still Jon Windle’s prime fodder for lyrical
recollection, whilst musically the band’s Britpop-informed
songcraft have side-stepped leftfield for giddy and
intoxicating, guitar-charged, sing-a-long rollicks with a
darker, deeper tone.
Already Little Man Tate are playing to bigger crowds across
the UK. ‘Northing Worth Having Comes Easy’ is the band’s call
to arms and proof that passion and good, positive songs are
what really matter at a time of industry anxiety.
