Jayne Compton – Switchflicker / Club Brenda
Jayne Compton is the peculiar mind behind two of Manchester’s edgiest and most enduring musical institutions: the Switchflicker record label and Club Brenda. Established in 2000 Switchflicker has given voice to some of Manchester’s most esoteric performers, such as Divine David and Chloe Poems, whilst remaining tuned in to new pop talent, including 2008’s surprise hit Tings Tings, who launched their career at the label. Current signing Magic Arm is fast becoming one of the most talked about acts in the country; his debut album is due for release later this year.
Club Brenda is an exotic monthly soiree blending performance art, new bands and general debauchery. Recent acts to grace the Brenda stage have included Hidden Cameras, Cats in Paris and David Thomas Broughton.
