7. What are you looking for in a band? What does a band have to do to raise your interest?
The first 3 or 4 releases will be from bands that like the ethos of what we are doing and have contacted us. If we like what we hear from them then there’s a possibility we may be able to work together but 80s Casuals is still my first priority so we are only looking to do maybe half a dozen releases each year.
8. What can bands or artists expect from working with you?
We can introduce the bands to the 80s Casuals social network sites of over 10000 followers plus other contacts we have made on the local music scene. We hope it gives them a platform and some inspiration to do there own thing whether that be getting a video made or releasing their own vinyls.
9. Are you going to focus on certain genres?
Not particulary. I need to like it plus i have to factor into account that it will need to sell a few so that we can recuperate our outlay.
10. Are there any more releases scheduled yet?
The Sand Band is scheduled for the end of October, The Troubadours for November and Sankofa for December or January. There’s also the possibility of an album but that is at the discussion stage.
11. When you listen to music yourself, what is your favorite medium?
After recently purchasing a 1982 Bang and Olufsen Beocenter 7002, vinyl and cassette have been the only form of medium I listen to in the house.
I used to only buy cassettes in the 90s so I could play them in the car and I have my fathers 50s and 60s vinyl from when he went to sea. Then there is my own 70s and 80s collection.
