Conceived and set up in 2007 to release the unknown music of Wilson Tan, El Rancho Records has been at the heart of Glasgow’s music scene for the past 12 years. Releasing, promoting, booking and managing some of the best up and coming talent in Glasgow and beyond, El Rancho has covered everything from country dub to garage rock and sophisticated pop.

Via El Rancho, I work with some of the best new bands in Glasgow including LYLO, Savage Mansion, Sweaty Palms, Tomorrow Syndicate and The Roves, who are from London. Through my newly established booking agency, and as co-founder of Freakender, I promote your new favourite bands from home and around the world, week in week out around the city, as well as at the three-day Freakender Festival every September.

Taking over The Skinny's weekly slot on EH-FM, I chat about the early days of El Rancho, covering influences and inspirations, as well as playing tracks from the label's back catalogue and booking agency, right up to the latest releases, including this week's brand new single, The Pleasures of the Table, from Glasgow duo The Lawnmower, who play their official Single Launch Party on Saturday 19 October at Flying Duck.
