Electric Honey (label)


Electric Honey (label)

Electric Honey is a record label run by students studying an HNC in Music Industry Management at Stow College in Glasgow, Scotland. Every year they choose an act to sign and release a record as part of their course. The label's first real success came in 1996 with the release of Belle & Sebastian's "Tigermilk" (To date the only full length album released on the label) It was released in limited numbers (as with all the label's releases) and is therefore seen as a collector's item, fetching up to £400 on internet auction sites. Other artists that have had success after initially being with Electric Honey are Snow Patrol (then known as Polar Bear) and Biffy Clyro.

In the past, Stow College students also ran the labels Gdansk Recordings, which focuses on releasing electronic music, and Root8 Recordings, which releases world music. However, as of 2007, students focus solely on the running of Electric Honey.
