Who We Are
AnalogueTrash is an independent record label, management and promotions company run by Adrian Brian Thompson and Mark Buckley (hello!), based in Manchester, England. We launched AnalogueTrash as an eclectic, alternative electronic music club night in spring 2009, having conceived the idea during the latter part of a particularly excellent Covenant gig at Manchester Academy. Huge fans of alternative and grassroots music in all its forms, full of big ideas, and armed with a healthy dose of idealism, Google and a shoestring budget we put on our first gig and club night in June 2009 in the tiny back room of what was then Moho Live in Manchester's Northern Quarter.
After three and a half years of awesome parties, great experiences and learning about the music and events business as we went along, the AnalogueTrash record label was conceived and launched in late 2013. Our idea was simple really - a grass-roots, DIY and artist-focused record label that's eclectic, accessible and inclusive; and one that champions innovative music regardless of genre, subculture, current trend or fashion. By February 2014 we'd released our first album and before we knew it we had an expanding catalogue of music from a diverse range of local and international artists. After a while we moved away from our more traditional electronic music club nights in favour of collaborative music and arts festivals, grassroots artist showcases, DIY gigs and more leftfield, alt.queer clubbing affairs. Not only that, but because we love sharing great music, even if it's not stuff we've put out ourselves, we launched an electronic music blog and internet radio station in 2016 and 2017 respectively.
AnalogueTrash is 100% independently owned and operated. We're highly political, pro-queer, pro-feminism, pro-internationalism, pro-multiculturalism, anti-fascist and deeply passionate about the power of music to effect positive social change and bring people together. We're constantly striving to make sure our roster, output and ethos reflect those values; and we're genuine fans of every artist we work with.
