Speaker: Interviewer: Wyndham Wallace
4AD is one of the most iconic independent record labels in the world. Guided by the vision of founder Ivo Watts-Russell and graphic designer Vaughan Oliver during the 1980s and 90s, its eccentric roster – including Cocteau Twins, Birthday Party, Throwing Muses, The Pixies, Dead Can Dance, This Mortal Coil, Wolfgang Press, Lush and others – and enigmatic sleeve art captured the imagination of a generation of alternative music lovers.
Simon Halliday has been 4AD’s Managing Director since 2007, with a brief to rebuild the 4AD brand and expand its reach, with the likes of Beirut, TV On The Radio, Blonde Redhead, Scott Walker, Bon Iver, Big Pink, Ariel Pink, Zomby and Joker. At by:Larm he will tell the story of how he has made 4AD a major force, building on its past legacy but driving forward to a new era artistically and economically.
