Bloody exciting news alert!!!
Our punk collective has been thinking about extending our reach by creating a small independent record label for some time – and to kick that off we’ve decided to start with a compilation album, entitled “The First Five Years”. We’ve had over 100 bands play at our gigs over the last five years (we celebrate that 5th birthday at our next gig at Mama Liz’s, which also celebrates their 10th year of being a cracking independent music venue.
So SCP0001 “The First Five Years” is well underway, with almost all the bands & tracks agreed (30ish in total), our music producer guru is in place, and we want all tracks with him before the end of October!
We’ve got some of the cream of the DIY punk scene on this banger, and in many cases it’s never released tracks! We’ve got quotes in for the manufacture & pressing – we are going for top quality production values on our first baby, no expense spared, no bank account left in the black. We are talking a double vinyl gatefold LP and a full to bursting CD!
Artwork mock-ups are underway (we’ve got a ton of great photos thanks to scene photograph Mark Richards and local hotshot Pawel!)… and a rough schedule is in place too keep us honest. We may have the best punk rock Xmas pressie of all time on our hands!
Cheers to all the bands coming in on this adventure with us!
