SMOG VEIL have helped us a lot through digitally distributing our releases from their base in the U.S.
Here’s their own blurb –
Smog Veil Records has been releasing records since 1991, most geared to the post-young, most of which are ridiculous, bombastic, and otherwise under appreciated rock and roll from Northeastern Ohio
These guys have released a ton of good stuff including Pere Ubu.
HEADWRECKER is a label run by an Irishman in London.
They co – released ‘A Massive, Glorious, Uphill, Shit – Fight’
Focuses on mainly Irish hardcore and filthy dirges.

This is an amazing label that primarily releases cassettes.
They released our ‘No Fi, Lo Fi, Hi Fi’ cassette.
Here’s the ‘about’ section from their own site –
Our first release was Quompilation No. 1 in January 2011 which featured 13 of Ireland’s best young bands covering some of their favourite songs of 2010. It was a huge success and the cassette sold out pretty much immediately following a rollicking ol’ launch gig in the Lower Deck. Further releases followed in 2011 in the form of No Fi, Lo Fi, Hi Fi, a collection of B-Sides and Rarities from legendary Dublin alternative-types, Estel and a split cassette from Ginola and Turning Down Sex called It’s A Disagreeable Thing To Be Whipped.
2012 has so far brought the release of Quompilation #2, which completely sold out at the launch in Dublin’s Crawdaddy. We’ll have four new releases in May and plenty more throughout the year, so keep an eye on things over the next few months.
We’ve also moved into promoting gigs for people and have put on some really fun things over the last few months, with some more big things to come in the near future. We do all sorts, from crusty punk in tiny venues to experimental electronics in massive churches, so get in touch if you’re looking to play in Dublin and we’ll try to help you out.
