About

The Submarine Broadcasting Company is a small independent netlabel. We're just over a year old now, and we're immensely proud of the releases we've achieved in our first year, including One String Inspiration and the Post:Soc compilations. But now we want your help so we can take our next step and make something really special.

One of the forms of music we are particularly passionate about is the krautrock scene of the 1970s - bands like Can, Neu!, Popol Vuh, and Faust that re-wrote the rules of rock music and inspired a thousand bands. So with that in mind we set out to find today's krautrock-influenced bands and present a showcase of their music.

We've got eight great bands and the tracks demonstrate a heady mix of motorik, kosmische and elektronische influences, along with a healthy dose of psych and garage rock. Our line-up includes:  

  • The legendary Six By Seven, as featured in the video above 
  • From Italy, we have Unimother 27 
  • From Finland, the Oulu Space Jam Collective, 
  • Peri Esvultras from Belgium, 
  • Shice Squad from Germany, 
  • From the UK we have Dynamo Snackbar and Beltism 
  • From no fixed address we have t.r. hand. 

We have some rare tracks, some exclusive mixes and some tracks exclusive to Klang. 

So far, so good. But if you are going to make a krautrock compilation, it really needs to be on vinyl. We all know nothing compares with the look and feel - even the smell - of a great vinyl LP. And we're going to do it properly - heavyweight vinyl, gatefold sleeve, optimum length for best sound quality, the whole nine yards.

So this is why we need your help; we're desperate to make this album but initial costs for a vinyl project are huge compared to our previous CD projects, so we're asking for your help to raise the money to press what is going to be a very special album.

Risks and challenges

We are in a good place with this project; all the music is recorded and the artwork is 90% complete. We are a completely independent record label, we don't have any big label backing or have piles of money in the bank; but in this case it is all very simple and very low risk - if we can hit the target amount, the record will happen.
