One Good Summer - Click for more infoAlan Ibbotson is a welcome addition to our label roster. We are pleased to release his debut album of original folk/rock oriented music, ‘One Good Summer’. The album is loosely based on a summer cycle of the year, but is also an insightful exploration of the human condition from bed-sit life through entangled relationships to lost childhood fondly remembered.

Factory Fast Records - Click for more infoOur colleagues at Factory Fast Records of New York City have been kind enough to include three ‘Pig’n’aif’ tracks from the ‘Handover’ album in some of their compilation releases. The tracks are receiving regular, sustained airplay from radio stations in the USA as well as some local stations in the UK. Thanks guys for your ongoing help and support.

 ’Oh Girl’ is included on ‘Hot Sweet and Blue’,
‘Dead Man Blues’ is on ‘Road To The Sun’ and ‘Cycles’ is  included on the ‘Curtains Against the Wind’ compilation. It goes without saying that all 3 compilations are worth checking out, not least because of Pig’n’aif’s involvement.
