Here at 80s Casuals we pride ourselves on using local business and talent, whether that be printing, embroidery, photography or design. Therefore as we embark on ‘Eighties Vinyl Records’ we shall be using the same principal.
The ‘Not for Profit’ label will hopefully be a showcase of local talent, from the Artists themselves through to the Graphic Designer, Film/Video Production, Editors, Recording Studio etc, etc.
To keep within our Eighties Philosophy and Inspiration we shall be producing Limited Edition 7” Coloured Vinyl in quantities not exceeding 250.
There was nothing better than racing to Probe Records to pick up a Limited Edition Vinyl on the first day of release, checking the Cover Artwork, reading the Sleeve Notes and having something of substance to grasp on the journey home.
Our first Single is an exclusive from the much lauded talent that is The Sand Band. ‘Going to the City’ will be accompanied by a Video courtesy of Freakbeat Films, with all Artwork by Dominic Foster. Studio time donated by Steve Powell at Roscoe Studios.
We go into the studio tomorrow to put the first track down ready for Vinyl production. The Sand Band have given us an exclusive with 'Going to the City'. The bands album release 'All through the Night' from 2011 made Mojo Magazines Top 50 albums of the year, above Noel Gallagher, The Arctic Monkeys and Radiohead.
The idea of 'Eighties Vinyl Records' is to act as a showcase and produce possibly 4 or 5 singles each year.
We are looking at an early September release for The Sand Bands 'Going to the City'.
