About

On November 14th, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard announced a new album and stated that everyone is free to manufacture CDs, vinyl presses or cassette tapes. You can read the full statement on their Facebook page.

The quote that really stood out to us was: “Ever wanted to start your own record label? GO for it! Employ your mates, press wax, pack boxes.”

As somebody who has always wanted a record label, we never had a better chance to do it. So we are going to press wax, pack boxes and discover new bands! We can use this as an opportunity to do something brilliant! This album can help fund more bands who are inspired by Gizzard.

With this project we are creating something memorable and taking it to another level. It is something that King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard would like to see us (musicians and music lovers) do. We need more independent labels, promoters and successful musicians.

All the profits will go on to promote new aspiring artists. Do you have a band? Please, contact us with links to your music.

Who we are

We are two music enthusiasts and frequent gig-goers obsessed with new records. We have met in University of Huddersfield doing Popular Music and Promotion courses. Since then we have attended many conferences in the UK and Europe, gathering information and making connections. We have played in many bands and during that time we were facing same issues that aspiring musicians go through today. Trying to get your music out there is a struggle. At this point we believe it is a right time to start a record label to promote new artists, press their records and organise shows. We are glad King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard provided us with this opportunity. They do a lot for the music industry and it's our time to follow their example to create something worthwhile.

Risks and challenges

Our plan is to press 500 units of heavyweight vinyl! We must reach £3500 goal in the next 60 days before the pressing plant will manufacture it.
If not, nobody will be charged. It might take up to 12 weeks to be made and shipped.

If we receive more funds than we are planning to reach, all profits are going to the label to support new artists.
