In the face of current pressing plant issues and changing situations in my own life, it's becoming apparent that within around half a year I won't be able to put as much energy into running my label as I would like, so I pose this question: do you think I should keep it going in a less 'intensive' capacity and release a couple of record a year, reducing the impact and scope or do you think it would make more sense to wrap it all up and say, 'we had fun, but now we're done.'

It could be that I'm worrying needlessly and I will be able to carry on, but advice would be much appreciated.

I'd buy it - Brian Harvey is pretty punk.

I'm just glad Andy checked it out as a result of my marketing ploy.

To be honest I mostly had it like that to entice press types and bloggers to actually listen to it. Happy to change it to something less blunt and potentially disappointing haha.

I've had a few searches and found a couple of answers, but nothing too solid.
Any bands or label types have a recommendation for short run CD duplication, printing and card wallet printing?
Looking to make around 50-100 copies.

Cheers.

Yeah, when bands send me stuff I prefer them to let me know what they are aiming for. I know we don't sound exactly like those bands, but they definitely influence the song writing. I listened to the Plaids LP for the first time tonight Joe. That record rules, I'm sad I won't see you guys play again.

New Glasgow band with influences taken from 90's punk bands like Jawbox, Hoover etc.
Andy already posted the link to our EP in the New Releases section of the site.

We're officially 'releasing' the digital version tomorrow, but you can hear/get it here and there will be tapes and CDs soon. Let me know what you think.

I think already heard is doing a decent job of covering a lot of stuff, they do help Struggletown out a lot with promoting our releases etc. I would totally agree that not only are there a lot of lads on this list it's also kinda samey stuff, with a few exceptions, but I guess it's down to stuff they personally like.

I came across an old UK band called Admit You're Shit and then found out that the singer founded the National Front, does anyone else know more about this?

Edit: found this which explains it all. I thought the music was decent before I heard this. I guess the music was still decent.

Hiya, never had much luck with forums aside from lurking, but DIY has always been so good to me so I figured I'd give it a try and try and be active on here.
