Playlist 300 - Feb 25 2014 - Eddie Kiely (FIFA Records) Interview

For the 300th edition of the show I invited Eddie Kiely of Cork's FIFA Records into studio to talk about the label, how it was set up, and to play some music from their upcoming releases by The Vincent(s) and Elastic Sleep. We also chatted about Eddie's own musical influences and tastes from early Smiths and MBV, to current faves Dissolutes, Land Lovers, The Careers and Girl Band.

Eddie has been involved in the music business for about 20 years, having been associated with Cork's "first wave" of label signings in the 1990s as manager of Emperor of Ice Cream (The Emperors). FIFA have had notable releases in the last year by The Frank & Walters and The Would Bes.
