Short-lived late 70s Cork label. Releases are a mix of rock and folk.

On Sunday 18 March 1980 the label organised a live showcase of local rock bands at Cork City Hall. This show was recorded and presumably live tapes still exist somewhere (anyone know any more about that???) The lineup included: Hot Guitars, The Kidz, Small Change, Orpheus, The Banditz, The Constant Reminders and Nun Attax.

More info about this label needed please.
