Indie staple Big Scary Monsters are celebrating their 250th release with a special 12” picture disc.
Speaking about the release, the label’s founder Kevin Douch says: “We think our roster is the best in the world and, as such, it deserves shouting about, SO WE MADE A LOVELY COMPILATION FOR YOU ALL.
“We’re immensely proud of the extremely talented artists’ we’re lucky enough to work with and only wish we could’ve squeezed more of them onto this record. It’s release marks the beginning of a very busy period for BSM, with loads of brilliant new releases, showcases at SXSW, The Great Escape and Truck festivals, in addition to the return of our own multi-venue East London event, Big Day Out, on 28th September. Running a record label is never straight-forward and nor should it be (the fact that this release’s catalogue number is accidentally BSM250 says it all) but we absolutely love what we do and hope this pay what you want LP helps introduce lots of people to their new favourite band.”
