Encyclopedia > Paul Smith (music industry)

Paul Smith is probably best known as the founder and manager of Blast First, the British alternative record label that released artists such as Sonic Youth, the Butthole Surfers, Big Black and Dinosaur Jr. in the UK. He continued to manage the artists and work in the music industry when Blast First was bought by Mute Records. He is also known in subcultural circles as the man behind King Mob/Disobey, and the occasional Club Disobey underground art events in London. In 2002 he produced a multimedia performance event at the Barbican to mark the release of Iain Sinclair's book London Orbital. The event featured a diverse range of artists from the literary and music worlds including J.G. Ballard and Bill Drummond. [1] (http://books.guardian.co.uk/review/story/0,,813739,00.html)

Paul Smith also produced the final British tour of Ken Kesey, taking him on a bus tour around festivals in summer 1997. He is also known for a record label of spoken word performances by famous counter-culture authors from the beat generation to Iain Sinclair and Stewart Home.
