Re: Starting and running a label

All depends on what you agreed at the time with your artists. Typically, I'd be closest to your third scenario: bands get copies at cost price, but on a sale or return basis. If we're low on stock we'll ask for some back, if they sell less on tour than they expect we'll take some back, otherwise the...

Re: Starting and running a label

Anyone had any experience with dealing with Google/YouTube? They've removed the Fika Recordings channel and all our music videos, claiming they are "spam, scam or commercially deceptive content". All the "contact us" forms I've tried have led nowhere, with the exception of automated emails claiming ...

LDN Aug26: Stanley Brinks & Freschard with The Wave Pictures

We've got another record from Stanley Brinks out at the end of August - this one is an album of duets with Freschard: think drinking songs about love, and love songs about drinking. We're in charge of making sure people come out to the London show at The Shacklewell Arms on the 26th and drink and da...

Re: Starting and running a label

Not sure where to ask this, so why not here? Have any of you traveled by airplane to another country while bringing along records to sell? Has this ever been a problem? Could it be? Did a trip to the US with essentially a change of clothes and a suitcase of Tigercats/Smittens/Making Marks merch. I ...

Re: General Stuff People Want to Know

I phoned up to book camping this afternoon and got asked whether I wanted to DJ in the campsite (they've obviously not heard my Whitehouse/Taylor Swift DJ set before). So it would seem something is going ahead, and the campsite themselves are on the look out for DJs - though might just be in the bar...

Re: Fika Recordings

Today we've released the first 7" from a full band Owl & Mouse, on lovely sky blue vinyl. I hope it's something you'll like; I adore it.

Re: Fika Recordings

We should have copies of the LP and CD in time for Indietracks, but hearing turnaround times for vinyl manufacture are slipping... but if all goes to plan we'll have this, as well as the new 10" from The Smittens and the LP of duets from Stanley Brinks & Freschard available too....

Remember this song? It must have been too long since you've been able to dance to it. Rectify that on Saturday. Bring all your friends too.

Re: LDN: Cosines + Simon Love @ Sebright Arms, May 16

So no Eureka California and no HHBTM co-promotion, so we're going it alone for this one with Cosines, Simon Love and Giant Burger, plus The Girls Are DJs.
