HALL OR NOTHING, the PR company handling acts such as OASIS, MANIC STREET PREACHERS and RADIOHEAD, is celebrating its 15th birthday by launching a record label, CRYSTAL SONGS.

The label’s first offering will be a self-titled EP by Elevation, who number ex-Three Colours Red members Pete Vukovic and Keith Baxter among their ranks. The single is released on October 22. An album will follow in February next year.

Crystal Songs’ mission is to “release great new and unsigned music – with a few big name surprises thrown in”. They are encouraging new artists to send demos with a brief biography to Crystal Songs, PO BOX 30891, LONDON W12 7XA.
