The name ‘Epic Sweep’ was taken from the title of an EP released by the Kites in the mid 1980s. Like the wayward acoustic duo themselves, it was brilliant but no one ever heard it. Although hardly a recipe for any aspiring label, the title seemed beautifully flawed and weirdly apt.
The label is based in Wellington, NZ – if not always physically, definitely metaphysically. With some notable exceptions, most of the music released on Epic Sweep comes from these shores too. The label is very much a part-time affair inspired by the musical talents and misfits that cross our solar system. All comments, ideas and suggestions are welcome.
