Rune Grammofon lanserer en ny label som kun skal gi ut nummererte LP`er, her en kopi av en pressemelding.

We are proud to present The Last Record Company, a special vinyl label set up by Rune Grammofon. Each release is limited to 500 copies only and comes in a lavish, thick, handnumbered gatefold sleeve with artwork by Grandpeople (www.grandpeople.org). Each release includes a 16 page art-booklet. The music is brand new and exclusive to this release and might or might not be available in other formats later. The first three releases are all by very prominent figures on the flowering contemporary music scene in Norway.

Please also check here for a very special and time limited introductory offer.

Stian Westerhus - Galore
Solo guitar recording from one of Norway´s hardest working young improvisors, currently a member of Jaga Jazzist, Puma, Monolithic and more. During the last few years he has put more energy into challenging the electric guitar alone on stage. Blessed with little or no respect for the instrument his performances balance raw expressiveness, virtuousity and melodic instinct with his Norwegian heritage and growing up listening to Slayer. Mastered by Helge Sten, aka Deathprod.

Ultralyd - Renditions
Kjetil Møster, Anders Hana, Kjetil Brandsdal and Morten J. Olsen continue to develop the sonic explorations that started with their brilliant ”Conditions For A Piece Of Music” album (2007) and continued with ”Conditions For A Piece of Music II” off ”Money Will Ruin Everything 2”. Just as comparable to dark metal dronemasters as to contemporary composers.

Maja Ratkje - Cyborgic
A rare live recording and her first solo album for quite some time, this finds Maja on top form. Since her recording debut as a member of SPUNK 10 years ago, she has continuously challenged us with groundbreaking solo performances or in projects like Fe-Mail and with Lasse Marhaug as well as with SPUNK. Last year saw her composers portrait ”River Mouth Echoes” being released on John Zorn´s Tzadik label.
