What made you start up IIB records and what advice do you have for those who are just starting up their DIY labels
I managed to blag a box of about 200 cassettes from a studio that was chucking them out a few years back. They sat around for quite a while and it was around the time Male Bonding, Pens and Graffiti Island were all starting up. So each band get a couple tracks recorded and i made 100 cassettes with those 3 bands on. I just dubbed them on the cassette played i had at the time. They came out really quiet and i even managed to make about 20 copies play completely backwards.
You played Off Set with Graffiti Island last year will their be anymore show’s/Records in the future?
Tope five players on your I pod right now?
What’s been the most proudest moment so far for you?
And the worst?
If you had to choose Skate or music?
I see your from Oswestry what was your experience like music wise growing up there? How did you get records,hear new stuff.
And finally what are your top 5 records that changed your life (If you can add a reason to)

Milk Maid are from Manchester and a breath of fresh air in a sincere DIY way.
There debut 'Yucca' is out via Mazes Jack Cooper's label 'Suffering Juckbox" and 'Fat Cat" next week. For fan's of Nine Black Apls this is for you due to the main vocals being by Martin Cohen the former bass player.
Cohen recorded all the track's in he's flat so you can't get anymore lo-fi then that without trying.I'm sure many will compare this to the Southern drenched sound's of Black Lips but for me Milk Maid stand alone with their Northern charm. Like Spectrals it's honest and to the point and sure to be a Summer long player.
Yucca is out Next week

At present all i seem to play is the latest offering from Tune Yards 'WHOKILL' L.P. It's amazing and I wish i caught them live when they toured the UK recently.
Take a look at the live performance taken from Soundsacpes.
Her voice is something else.

The history of Apple Pie are a five-piece based in London. First time I heard them was at the Weird Dreams E.p launch. They sounded great in the small venue The Victory, live it's like Teenage Fan Club or Sonic Youth with a more added blissful wall of noise. On record track's like 'Your Not Cool' seem like they've been plucked straight from Empire Records Sound-track. A real 90's fuzzed out summer vibe to them especially the track 'Mallory'.
The single 'Your not Cool' is out 27th June

Been meaning to do a post on Slow Animal for ages. If your a fan of Lo-Fi Wavves style indie then their perfect for you. The best thing is you can get all their out put so far for free, before the debut LP is out late summer via their Band camp page.
