Who would have thought that when we embarked upon this amazing journey of designing T-Shirts, 10 years ago, that we would end up also as the founders of a new Vinyl only Record Label.
We have kept it 80s inspired by only releasing Limited Edition 7" Vinyl singles, no downloads or CD's. Vinyl is on the up with sales increasing year on year and it sounds so much better than the general compressed music on CD's and downloads..
The 'Not for Profit' label has had a magnificent response with a mention in the local evening paper plus Merseyside music magazine Bido Lito http://www.bidolito.co.uk/ and airplay on Radio Merseyside and the Bido Lito Podcast. We now have at least 7 singles lined up for the next 6 months. Each one carries a significant letter at the centre of the vinyl which is a working on-going piece of Art as it spells out EIGHTIES VINYL RECORDS in the next 20 releases.
The first single 'When We Kiss' by The Sand Band is now available from www.eightiesvinylrecords.co.uk
The Sand Band album 'Through The Night' from last year was in Mojo magazines Top 50 albums of the year ahead of The Arctic Monkeys and Noel Gallagher. So its a bit of an amazing start for us that we only hope we can keep building upon.
A big Thanks to those who have bought and support this Project that is used as a showcase for the bands, graphic artists and videographers. We want to give you more than just a single and have Limited Edition Eighties T-Shirts at £15 plus a signed Poster and other band related items available with each release.
