New Irish Underground Label Fort Evil Fruit

New Irish Underground Label Fort Evil Fruit

The label’s focus will be on an ‘eclectic selection’ of underground music, which, if the current release schedule is anything to go by, will include everything from sound art, to doom metal, to organ improvisations. The label will release music on cassette, and in small runs of about one hundred copies.

Fort Evil Fruit is a new Dublin-based label set up by Paul Condon, of Irish experimental folk group United Bible Studies.

The label’s focus will be on an ‘eclectic selection’ of underground music, which, if the current release schedule is anything to go by, will include everything from sound art, to doom metal, to organ improvisations. The label will release music on cassette, and in small runs of about 100 copies.

Condon’s aim in establishing Fort Evil Fruit, ‘is to provide an outlet for underground music (both from Ireland and abroad) that (he is) passionate about’. And whilst each release will be limited in size, Condon also expresses the hope that ‘the releases might have a life beyond their small editions, and be brought to the attention of people who might not otherwise be aware of them’.
