Last Night From Glasgow is a not-for-profit independent record label based in Glasgow, Scotland. It was established in 2016 and relies on a crowdfunding business model to operate.[1] The label's name is taken from the line "When I called you last night from Glasgow" in ABBA's Super Trouper.[2]

History[edit]

The concept of LNFG was formed in March 2016 by a group of six Glasgow-based music fans. They envisaged a record label operated on a patronage model, funded by a £50 donation from 60 of their friends and associates. In return the patrons would receive physical copies of each release and guest list entry to all label events. The label's inaugural event took place on 2 June 2016 at The Old Hairdresser's venue in Glasgow, with 100 members and a roster of three artists.[3]

The label was founded with the intention of assisting unsigned artists with the physical release and promotion of their music.[4] Artists do not enter into any restrictive contract with the label, retain the intellectual rights to their music and are paid fairly for their work. All profits are reinvested into the objectives of the label;[5] it operates as a not-for-profit private limited company.[6] Operating capital is primarily raised by the sale of annual memberships and in return for their patronage, members receive a 12" vinyl copy of each of that year's releases, digital releases and guest list entry to all album launch events.[7] In the 2017 membership year the label operated with '200 or so' members.[8]

In February 2018 it was announced that Last Night from Glasgow had been awarded Creative Scotland funding "...to produce the recording, production, manufacture, distribution and promotion of six vinyl albums and supporting digital releases for six currently unsigned Scottish artists".[9] Further funding was obtained in February 2019 to "record, mix, master, produce, manufacture, promote and distribute seven albums and supporting digital releases.[10]

Komponist[edit]

In July 2019 it was announced that LNFG would be launching a new label 'Komponist', "focussed on the compositional artists as opposed to songwriters. Concentrating on all forms of instrumental music, be it Jazz, NeoClassical, Electronica or Heavy Drone." [11] [12]
