In 1995 Kenny Anderson, then lead singer/songwriter for the scottish
bands Skuobhie Dubh orchestra and Khartoum Heroes, launched his own
label 'Fence' with his own solo project King Creosote. With a healthy
cynicism of all things music industry related, KC set out to make home
recorded music in as stress-free an environment as possible, and
hunkered down in Fife for the long haul.
With a few titles released through local shops, and with brothers Een (Pip Dylan) and Gordon (Lone Pigeon) forming the beginnings of a
fence collective. By summer 2000 Fence had taken over the running of a St. Andrews CD shop, had an extensive website up and running, and were
packing out the local pubs once a fortnight. Collective member James Yorkston made sure that the Fence music came to the attention of labels
like Bad Jazz and Domino, and the legendary Fence gatherings were soon
on the move, and with a new found creative spirit, Anderson became one of Scotlands more prolific and respected songwriters.
