Here’s Part 2 of my random and very occasional series on my favourite record labels.
For my money, Riot Season records is the best label in the UK at the moment and as far as I can tell it’s run out of a back bedroom in Brum by a bloke called Andy, who does it for the pure love of the music.
The order of the day is usually heavy heavy psych rock (Hibushibire, Blown Out, The Cosmic Dead), but there’s straight up rough and ready rock too (Bad Guys), noise rock (Hey Collossus – before they turned into a conventional rock band on their new album!), experimental noise (Shit and Shine) and all things in between.
I can’t stop listening to the Hibushibire record at the moment, so I thought it would be a good time to do a label lowdown. Most stuff gets released on vinyl and everything can be found on their Bandcamp page.
