Hungry Audio

Hungry Audio is a Norwich/London based independent record label who's roster includes The Telescopes, Sennen, The Walk Off, The Aprons, Stuffy / The Fuses, My favorite and Master Solo.

The label was launched in November of 2004 by its five partners: Adrian Cooke, Stewart Nash, Alan Southgate, Rob Childerhouse and Chris Bourn. Hungry Audio's first release was the Winter EP by The Telescopes. The single immediately gathered positive reviews by the NME, Drowned In Sound and numerous websites. The Drowned In Sound review ended by stating "Welcome Hungry Audio to the big bad world of the record industry. May the rest of your gifts be as astoundingly beautiful as this."

Early 2005 saw the label release the 'Happiest Days of My Life' single by My favorite. The song also received equally glowing reviews and later featured in the 2006 movie 'Another Gay Movie' starring Graham Norton amongst others.

A few months later a club night was launched in Norwich which featured live acts alongside the labels self-confessed shambolic DJing. The first live guest was Loz Colbert the ex-drummer from Ride (band) and now member of the recently reformed Jesus and Mary Chain. The club night still runs today.

In the Autumn of 2005 the label released its first longplayer by a then local unknown band called Sennen. The album went on to feature in numerous end-of-year polls including Drowned In Sound. The album was also picked up by Radio 1's Steve Lamacq and 6Music's John Kennedy who featured tracks from the album on their shows.

More recently the label have released records by new acts including the Bearsuit spin-off band The Aprons, the Steve Albini produced Stuffy / The Fuses and Oxford based noise terrorists The Walk Off who boast a dancing bear as a member of the band (don't worry, it's only someone in a costume). The label has also released the latest album by The Telescopes who honoured the label by calling the album 'Hungry Audio Tapes'. This release also boasted a beautiful reworking of the bands 1989 hit 'The Perfect Needle'.

The label has also helped to host or DJ at many other nights including the legendary shoegazing nights Sonic Cathedral. In February 2007 the night included the debut solo live performance of Pete Fijalkowski the ex-lead singer of Adorable (band).

2007 sees the label release the second album by Sennen (which is produced by Primal Scream/House of Love producer Pat Collier) and new artist Master Solo.

The label has also continued received much exposure on BBC Radio stations in the UK. BBC Radio 1 has played the Master Solo on several occasions on and even featured the label as its 'DIY Label of The Week' in February whilst 6music featured The Walk Off single on its station.

Sennen release their first new single of the year 'A Life To Live' on June 4th.
