Approved: Big Deal – Teradactol

CMU Approved

Big Deal

Things have changed, sonically speaking, since boy-girl Mute-signings Big Deal released beat-free debut LP ‘Lights Out’ back in late 2011. Now featuring drum-playing by Melissa Rigby of label associates SCUM, the band’s new single, the intentionally misspelt and non-dinosaur-themed ‘Teradactol’, is the loud and audacious first sign of a new Big Deal record that we’ll all be able to hear in the new year.

Play a studio version of it now via SoundCloud, and/or hear it in real life at at London’s 100 Club on 3 Dec, aka Big Deal’s last show of 2012.
