Biography

The six song EP Orbital Amusement sonically delights with ray-gun and sputnik sounds, layered vocals and fuzzy pitch-bending guitars. While reminiscent of classics (Led Zeppelin I, Flash Gordon-era Queen), more modern sounds like that of The Black Keys, Wolfmother and Smashing Pumpkins abound on this heavy, lustful yet astral collection.

With “Of Mind and Matter” (Eclectone Records) Little Man has combined the big hooks of classic Brit-Pop with something uniquely fresh. Recorded in an old hunting lodge in Chicago with producer Ed Tinley (Liz Phair, Ike Reilly), “Of Mind and Matter” takes the listener into a world of wonder. Traces of Led Zeppelin, T.Rex, the Kinks and David Bowie can be found in songs like “Don’t Pray to Fantasy,” “Talisman,” “Get It To Ground” and “Not Quite so High.”

Little Man’s third album “Soulful Automatic” (Ecletone Records) generated a great buzz in the Twin Cities. The City Pages declared Little Man The Best Rock Band of 2007 with a cover story and The Minnesota Music Academy nominated Little Man’s leader, Chris Perricelli (lead singer/guitarist/songwriter) with Guitarist of the Year. “Of Mind and Matter” continues “Soulful Automatic’s” tradition of driving rockers and swoon-worthy melodicism.

The band’s name is taken from a character who appears in classic folklore. The little man of mythology often joins the Hero on his journey towards self-awareness when he is most needed. He provides wisdom and talisman and steers the Hero towards the correct path. This small-statured creature is one of the band’s primary inspirations.
