Ian Smith from the record label Last Night From Glasgow: Part One. JPWEC Episode Three

March 30, 2018

In this episode I chat with Ian Smith from the record label, ‘Last Night From Glasgow (LNFG)’. The label was set up in 2016 and has had phenomenal success in a very short period of time. Since 2016 LNFG have signed 11 artists, released 11 vinyle recods, 23 digital albums and CD’s as well as organising numerous live shows and events.

We had a good long chat so I’ve split the episode into two parts. In part one we learn about:

* Ian’s backgrond growing up in Saltcoats. And his early taste in music.

* How the Scottish Independence vote of 2014 inspired Ian and a group of friends to set up the record label.

* How the label is organised and funded.

* How artists are chosen and the mechanics of running a record label in the modern era.

If you don’t want to listen to our chat about Scottish politics I recommend you skip from about 9 minutes to approximately 22 minutes.

Enjoy.
