Independent’s Day – Episode 1

Art for Blind is an independent record label and distro started in 2004 in Barnsley, before relocating to Leeds, Cork and now based in Sligo, on the Atlantic northwest.

The label is run by Dany Guest and Edel Doherty and it has released indie, punk, hardcore and electronic records over the years. Artists released on the label include The Altered Hours, I Am The Cosmos and PowPig.

In this episode, Dany and Edel discuss their thoughts on the vinyl revival, the male domination of the music industry and how they sometimes can’t resist releasing a new discovery.

Aoife Nic Dhonncha from feminist punk band Alien She and Ellen King (Ellll) also chat about releasing their music on the label, working as women in the industry and the influences of poetry and art on their sound.

Episode 1 will be aired at 13.00 on Monday 22nd April and repeated at 13.00 on Wednesday 24th April on RTÉ 2XM.
