Hue Records and Small Black Cat (publishing) were established in '93. To date we have released two albums with a third scheduled for October '97 and a fourth for early '98.
In July '93 'L' released her debut album 'words mean nothing, lifes just wild' on Hue. Though difficult to categorize and by an unknown singer (who didn't gig) the album was judged on its musical merits and received wide critical acclaim including a nomination for the Hot Press '93 best production award.
'pure Irish soul music' - Joe Jackson in the Irish Times.
'Art pop from L' - Tony Clayton-Lea in the Sunday Tribune.
L's second album 'Fire in a dream cage' will be released in October '97
In March '94 Stano released his 5th. album 'Wreakage' on Hue. Featuring musicians as diverse as Richie Buckley and Colm O'Ciosoig this album again displayed Stano's capacity to cross musical boundaries and reconcile divergent styles to create a unique production - as with his previous albums the critics found Wreakage difficult to pigeonhole.
'Imagine Crome colliding with Nine Inch Nails in a disco - thats Wreckage'
- Dave Segal - Alternative + Press.
'a real kick in the teeth for the rock purists and a welcome addition to the record collection of people who genuinely love music.' - Michael Beirne - Dublin Event Guide.
Stano is currently working on his second album with Hue.
