Bombed Out and artist news

15 years ago today(ish) our first release landed. Christ, time flies...
Joe Ninety’s (back when they were still Joe 90) first 7”, Short on Ideas, came back from press and landed at 86 Royal Park Road on one mid-September morning back in 1998. We totally copied the label style from the Crackle! Records 7”s of the time and got the sleeves printed locally. Numbering and assembling them was a fun job - though I admit the numbering system may not have been totally accurate by the time we finished.
We had no idea that the label would still be functioning 15 years later. Or that member of Joe Ninety would still be on the label (half of The Dauntless Elite). Or that we would ever work with a non-UK based band (thanks Kelly 8). Or a million other things that I could mention. Basically, It’s been mint!
Sure, Alex now lives in New York (after a stint in Hong Kong) and Jamie, while still living in Leeds, takes more of a back-seat these days but they are and always will be a huge part of the label. As for me? I think I’m too stubborn to quit. Or maybe I just don’t know what else to do? Ha, who knows. While I’m having fun though Bombed Out will remain. Let’s see if we can make it to 20!
In light of our birthday celebrations expect the following:
- BOMB001 - Joe Ninety’s Short On Ideas 7” has been re-mastered and will be available for free download shortly
- BOMB013 - Dugong’s Hat Danko album, itself celebrating it’s 10th Anniversary this month, is being released on limited edition, numbered, heavy-weight, gate-fold LP (phew!)... And will hopefully be ready for...
- BO15: Our Birthday All-dayer. As I’m sure you know by now on October 5th we will be taking over The Brudenell Social Club to bring you 12 bands followed by the Juvenile Hall DJs. The line-up we are a bit chuffed about. Come down! Facebook event thingy here. Tickets here.
There will also be a bit of a sale distro sale happening starting this weekend. Info on that then.
So anyway, to everyone who has supported the label over the last 15 years... THANK YOU! You know who you are!
Bombed Out Records (voted best UK record label, Fracture Zine, 2003-2004)
