It sounds like a painful back condition. But a group of Norfolk students are hoping that Slip Discs will help give local young musicians a step into the music industry after setting up their own record label.

Sixth formers from Wymondham High School are hoping to promote a new generation of bands, DJs and solo artists as a result of the community project. The group of AS-level students are all set to officially launch the Slip Discs record label tonight by showcasing young musical talents at Norwich Arts Centre.

The 16 to 17-year-olds began the project as part of their sixth form community service in September, and have already put together a demo CD at the school's recording studio with the help of music tech teacher Lloyd Jones.

David Royse, guitarist and press officer for the group, said there were a large number of Wymondham High musicians, including rock and metal bands, DJs, and acoustic acts and the group was eager to find new artists to join the label.

'We are all musicians and most of us play in bands, so we know how hard it is to get noticed,' he said.
