News Update


Spider Mike King video All Fade Away in NME here.

How long can you remain a best kept secret? Is there a record for such things? If not then Spider Mike King is certainly in the running to create one. Arguably the most defiant, independent spirit on the Manchester music scene, Mike has been making music since the late 60s working and performing alone and with pivotal figures who have helped define the city's rich musical heritage.


Honeychild Coleman has been working on music for new animation series pOny about an all girl band from the Lower East Side in New York City and the animatic is now LIVE! Her musician friends Bachslider and Liza Roure did some 'action acting' too.

You can see the animation and (free download) theme tune here.


Since posting this picture on Facebook on 12 August 2013 of a few tapes reels rescued when Strawberry Studios closed in 1990's, the photo has generated an unexpected and huge response!

We sent a sample mp3 to Warner recently (who now manage the Factory Records catalogue) and chose 20 seconds of the outtake of Joy Divisions 'Insight', with the lift shaft at Strawberry Studios used in the song. It suggests the listener is in the lift and the gate opens into a room with musicians playing. The outtakes were mastered and I believe record producer Martin Hannett must have decided the songs needed something more and added a synthetic (disco) snare to many of the tracks. This outtake is before they added the synthetic snare drum.
