Feature: Andy Monaghan's (Frightened Rabbit) People Behind The Music

by Eden Keane, 05 February 2013

Andy Monaghan from Frightened Rabbit shares his thoughts on inspirational people behind the music, including some established names amongst ones to watch.

Tom Rose, Reveal Records

Brainchild of workaholic Tom Rose, who started the label after seeing Kris Derver and believing that if he could convince Kris to let him release his record, he could sell it through his record shop. The label is key to some of the UKs most cutting edge folk. It's home to Lau, Roddy Woomble, Simone Felice and many more.

Chris Taylor - Producer

Known for his role as the bass player in Grizzly Bear, Chris has produced their last three albums, founded his own record label and released one of my favourite records of the last few years, CANT. Nobody likes a show off!

Strange Weather Brooklyn - Recording Studio

Even though I've never been here, having followed their story online I know it's a recording studio of the highest calibre. The chaps LOVE to geek out and have taken the high road along the DIY route with a lot of their pre amps and outboard toys to make the aural visions all the starry eyes clients have sonically intergalactic. Check out Woodsman who've recorded here.

Fence Records

Fife-based collective of musicians, artists and maniacs. They've put out records by Kid Canaveral, FOUND, King Creosote and Withered Hand and love any excuse to take over a large village / small town or remote island for a weekend party.

Jeff Zeigler, Uniform Recording - Record Producer

This guy loves synths, weird Japanese guitars, coffee and delay pedals! He's either produced, recorded, engineered or all of the above for Kurt Vile, The War On Drugs, Violens and his own Arc In Round outfit.

Optimo Music

Glasgow legend JD Twitch started a label a few years ago and has released and remixed some real dirty numbers when he's not out rocking your dancefloor into oblivion with Optimo partner JG Wilkes. The most recent output from the label is an arpeggiated odyssey from Glasgow's Golden Teacher.

    Tour Diary: Our Lost Infantry

    by Ryan Barham

    Our Lost Infantry are a four-piece from Aldershot specialising in ‘complicated pop’. In late February, they embarked on their first national tour. Having announced the release of single ‘The Arsonist’ on WET Records in the Summer, there was a positive atmosphere with the band telling the local press: “We've got in the habit of playing every show like it's our last, so expect four men sweating, shouting and jumping.” Introductions first: Thom – voice/frets/convolu...
