Wellington-based musician, Noel Meek, is proud to announce the launch of a new micro-label focussing on experimental music: End of the Alphabet Records.

The new label will showcase established and up and coming sound artists from New Zealand and abroad.

Each release will be hand packaged in small runs of different formats, including cassettes and lathe cuts, along with CDs and downloads via the label's bandcamp page. In the tradition of independent labels like ESP-Disk, the artists themselves decide what is heard on the releases and what is seen in the artwork.

End of the Alphabet's first release, NoFi Rainbow Vol. 1, is a compilation of New Zealand noise and drone artists who all have albums coming out later with the label. Its tracks range from noise godfather Bruce Russell (The Dead C) to young noise-beat innovator, Mischancerie, and offers a curated snapshot of the local scene, with a lean towards Wellington where the label is based.

NoFi Rainbow Vol. 1 and End of the Alphabet Records will be released with a party at The Pyramid Club in Wellington, NZ on September 13th.

Future international releases include Australian free improv luminary, Jim Denley, and Portland based wild man, Arrington de Dionyso.

Noel Meek has been involved in New Zealand experimental music since 1999 as a performer and organiser running concerts, festivals and venues, and is over the moon to be working with so many amazing musicians.
