New label signing helps Heavenly Records celebrate 25 years in business
A maverick independent record label that has outlasted and outshone its contemporaries by avoiding trend-chasing, it seems fitting that Heavenly Records have chosen to celebrate twenty-five years of business with four days of gigs in a Pennine valley town far off the music industry’s beaten track. Historically a strong-hold for radicals, bohemians and anarchists, Hebden Bridge seems an equally apt destination for Mark Lanegan to begin a European tour in this Labour Party-owned former working men’s club.
