PRESS RELEASE

Mr Big
“Romeo” stars return with
“Georgia” on their mind

On 13 June 2011, Mr Big release their wonderful single “Georgia”, followed by
the album “Bitter Streets” on 27 June through Soundfactor Records. Formed
under another name in the late 60s by Dicken and Eddie Carter, the first Mr Big
live show came in 1972. The band hit the big time in 1977 when their classic
single “Romeo” reached number 4 in the charts earning a slot on TOTP. The
single remained in the chart for ten weeks – and made them briefly a household
name: see it at www.youtube.com/watch?v=cndHeQdCptQ.

“Bitter Streets” is a confident statement from an outfit once again hitting their
stride. Fitting neatly into the plangent melodic style exemplified by “Romeo”, the
new single “Georgia” is a feel-good slice of Summer Pop with its eyes on the
horizon rather than in the past. This new track is an instant sing-along favourite
steeped in harmonies and sounds like the Bee Gees would if they were up to their
knees in the warm Pacific watching the sunset.

Mr Big initially enjoyed a great start to their career. Managed by Bob Hirschman
who also looked after Mott The Hoople, the band were initially signed to Epic for
three singles before moving to EMI. In November 1975 the band supported
Queen on their ‘A Night At The Opera’ tour. Things were building nicely. It was EMI who released “Romeo”, as well as the “Sweet Silence” album and its follow
up “Mr Big”. The band were also signed to Arista in the US by the near-legendary
Clive Davis; the first UK band that he took on. Though the band headlined their
own tours and also hit the road with the likes of Sweet, Tom Petty, Journey,
Kansas and The Runaways, the momentum was fading. A third album was
recorded, produced by Mott’s Ian Hunter, in 1978 but the band broke up soon
after.

Despite this, the Mr Big story never truly ended and the band were intermittently
active. 1996 saw the release of “Rainbow Bridge” album but it seems that perhaps 2011 will once again see Dicken and Eddie Carter back in the limelight.
“Georgia” and, indeed, “Bitter Streets” prove that the creative fires still burn
bright.
