NOW SELLING WORLDWIDE!
We are very proud of this our first album – yes, of course, we didn’t play any of the tracks, the magnificent bands did all that hard work – we just pulled the tracks together and begged and borrowed photos for the images (cheers to Mark Richards for the album cover images).
Hopefully, this is the biggest and best DIY Punk compilation ever put onto wax – it’s a treat for your ears!
We wanted to showcase the amazing bands who have played with us in our first five years promoting and putting on shows in this amazing DIY Punk scene. We’ve had over 110 bands play for us during that time, so we couldn’t, unfortunately, feature them all. We put out the call – and bands responded in amazing numbers. So this album features 33 different bands, most but not all still gigging, with 82 minutes of pristine punk rock covering a large range of the sub-genres of our vibrant scene. So that also means this is a DOUBLE ALBUM, two slices of coloured vinyl. It will come in a single heavyweight sleeve (not a gatefold), designed for two albums. We will add a 16-page photo and info booklet celebrating the bands and our gigs. If you’ve been to one of our parties you may see yourself in the booklet! The release is limited to 300 copies. Each copy will include a printed download code, so yes you will get a high-quality digital download you can use with any player/phone/iTunes, or stream via our bandcamp page. At this point in time we are NOT releasing this in any other form than the collectors vinyl – so NO CD. It’s something we may do at a later date, but for now, we wanted something really special.
