Founded in 1980 by Gerry Gallagher, guitarist with the Kim Newport Band, to release further recordings following two 1979 singles on Hawk Records. The label was based in Sligo and was active for a couple of years (1980-82). It catered for other artists from the West of Ireland looking for help releasing a single. Many of these were recorded at Greenfields Studios in Headford, Co. Galway which opened it's doors circa 1980. In all, 11 singles were released over a two year period, including releases by Pluto, a pop band from Donegal who also recorded for Ritz, and Donal McLynn of the Sligo McLynn folk group. The label folded when Gerry Gallagher and Kim Newport emigrated to the USA in 1983. It was recently revived with a new CD single release.
