Well, its been a year since we launched The Centrifuge’s netlabel with our first London show (at the now defunct Epicurean Lounge) and what a year it’s been!
At the last count we’ve put on or been heavily involved about 35 shows in 4 UK cities (London, Nottingham, Leeds and Manchester) in the past 12 months, in spaces as diverse as galleries, clubs, city centre spaces, warehouses and community centres. Not to be outdone, the label has released 27 EPs, albums and compilations.
