ICR celebrates 35 years in business

The organisation formerly known as Integrated Circuit Records or Integrated Circuit Studio throws the spotlight on itself at London's Cafe Oto this September

It is now 35 years since musician and sound engineer Colin Potter founded ICR. To celebrate, the record label, studio and distribution service has organised a showcase at London’s Cafe Oto featuring solo sets from Michael Begg (Human Greed, Fovea Hex), Jonathan Coleclough, Andrew Liles (Nurse With Wound, Current 93), Clodagh Simonds (Fovea Hex), Paul Bradley (Monos, Twenty hertz) and Colin Potter (Nurse With Wound, Monos). ICR started out as a bedroom studio in a small village in Yorkshire, before shifting operations to Preston. It is now based in London. To date ICR has released over 80 albums.

ICR: 35 will take place on 30 September.
