"We are looking specifically for creative writers with a particular interest in the noise/punk rock side of things. So locally, think Blacklisters, Hookworms, Hawk Eyes etc.. Elsewhere, recent reviews have included the likes of Pissed Jeans, The Bronx, Metz, and Beard Of Wolves.
If this sounds like your bag, or someone you know who would be ideally suited, get in touch below".
With much sadness we’ve learned that Leeds record label Brew Records have decided to call it a day. When we upped sticks from Nottingham and moved North to Leeds, we soon found these guys and their amazing artists who they put music out for. Plus One soon became big fans of Hawk Eyes, Blacklisters, Castrovalva, Kong, Humanfly and more. Reviewing these homegrown talents was nothing short of a pleasure as albums/ ep’s and singles came and went. Live of course is where our heart is and we were fortunate enough to see most of Brew’s roster and hope they continue with success. They leave behind quite the collection of cd’s, downloads, t-shirts and much more, which you can still check out by using the links below. Farewell Brew Records. ‘That was nice wasn’t it’?
