Started in 2001, Squirrel Records is an independent record label based in the UK. Releasing mainly vinyl 7 inch and LP's and keeping alive the spirit of early Creation, Postcard, Subway, Sarah etc... but bringing to you some of the best in (mainly female fronted) pop punk, rock n' roll and lo-fi fuzzy indie guitar noise.
We've released stuff by The Cribs (their debut single in 2003), The Real Losers (loud n' raw garage punk), Savage Lucy (teen girl punk from the USA), Pop Threat (fuzzed up guitar noise), Downdime (spikey psychedelic indie rock n' roll), and loads of others with plenty more to come.
No contracts, no fuss, no bullshit, no pandering to whatever (inevitably fuckin' dull) trend the mainstream music press have tried to invent or laid claim to inventing this week, and most importantly, no limiting ourselves to one style of music. We love punk stuff, pop stuff, noise, energy, spirit... if we like it, we'll release it.
Some of the earlier Squirrel Records releases listed are long deleted and sold out, but you can still order the later titles in the discography along with loads of great stuff released on other labels too (including Alien Snatch!, Rapid Pulse, Magic Marker etc...) by visiting the Squirrel Records website. Go take a look at what we got...
If you would like to contact either of us individually about anything, then go to our own personal MySpace pages.
All Squirrel Records releases are proudly distributed by Cargo; a major figure in the UK and European independant distribution scene.
