The most original Scottish label since Postcard, Fence began in 1995 as a repository for a welter of leftfield musicians with have-a-go spirit. Having already released beautifully scuffed LPs, James Yorkston, Tom (U.N.P.O.C.) Bauchop and early Beta Band man Lone Pigeon feature here, as do HMS Ginafore, Pip Dylan, Gummo Bako and King Creosote, who offers up the gorgeous “A Friday Night In New York”. Like watching slow bruises spread over soft fruit.
