fence statement
« on: Wed, Aug 14, 2013, 15:01 PM »
In the recent announcement made by Johnny Lynch (aka Pictish Trail) he hit the nail right on the head - by November 2012 there was certainly very little of Fife represented by Fence Records Ltd.

Having become increasingly uncomfortable with Fence Records' direction I felt I had no choice but to bow out in November 2012. I have effectively locked myself out since, quietly operating under the Alter Ego Trading Company banner. I may be locked out for a while yet.

However, the nail hasn't been hit into the coffin lid of fence. fence is alive and well and re-launching in January 2014 from our base here in the East Neuk of Fife. As well as the AETC's "Bunfight" on August 31st, and "World Tour of Crail" in February, we'll resurrect our Easter event in conjunction with the Anstruther Improvements Association to celebrate in the recent refurbishment of the Dreel Halls.

fence turns 20 next December, I imagine we'll forget and host an awkward 23rd birthday bash in 2017.

Meantime, it's business as unusual here under the fence rock as CDRs of rare titles are burned and artwork cut up by hand, so from all at fence and the AETC - Gummi Bako, Withered Hand, OnTheFly, Lomond Campbell, Uncle Beesly, Emporium, Beam, Lidh, Jo Foster, HMS Ginafore (weather permitting) and me, King Creosote - may we wish Johnny all the best with his new venture out on Eigg.

As Billy Pilgrim (R.I.P.) and I used to joke with our favourite regular customers in the fence shop on South Street, St Andrews, of which Johnny was by far the best, "thanks a lot, and careful you don't let that door slam you on the ass on the way out!"

Thank you from the heart for your continued support going forward for both Johnny's new, and my own hackneyed ventures.

Kenny Anderson (aka King Creosote).

The fence just needs a new coat of Creosote.

I, for one, will be sad if this means the end of Boer Records.
