In the modern age of music bands are continually catagorized and manipulated by the majority of the industry who are trying to cash in on one of the short-lived trends
that come and go like the tide. This type of mindset by the record industry and even artists has slowly made it more and more difficult for honest, hard working
musicians , who don't have the resources or desire to follow the current trends, to be able to actually make a living playing the music they love. Well this is where
Working Class Records come in, we are 100% dedicated to providing an outlet for original musicians in which they can grow and prosper on their own accord, we're not
looking to change artists into a cookie cutter mold of the "next big thing", we want originality!
So in 2010 after a long hiatus from the record label and after realizing the music industry and it's bands were in a sad state of affairs it was decided to start a
record label again with the hopes of supporting true, hard working, original artists, the ones who are often ignored by the mainstream "major" labels... the blue
collar workers of the music industry, hence the name Working Class Records!
Since restarting in April of 2010 the label has already released twenty albums in that short time by some great country, punk and folk artists. 2012 is looking to be
the label's biggest release year ever and there are already tons of new releases under contract as well as a handful of re-issues under way. Our vision regarding
music is if it's good music, it's good music! We love all styles of music and would love to work with artists playing Folk to Punk, Country to Blues, Jazz to Heavy
Metal, Rock to Pop, New Age to Classical and anything else you can think of!
WCR is distributed worldwide with both physical CD sales and digital distribution sales so working with us you can be rest assured that your music will be heard.
Keep the Faith,
A little history....
Started in 1995 by Doug "Duck" Squiggy as a way to release local music by some great artists the label (Squigtone Records) started slow by releasing local demo tapes
to be sold at the Squigtone Records record store. This quickly evolved into a label that in the beginning was used to promote the Oi! Punk band SQUIGGY but quickly
expanded to release many albums from bands the world over including but not limited to Headwound, Hudson Falcons, The Oi! Scouts, Outsiders, Blind Society, The Boils
and many more. Squigtone released 26 official releases, not including the demo tapes that were issued early on. The label went on hiatus in 2001 due to many factors
but mostly due to the owner going to work for other record companies and promotion agencies for the better part of that decade
So in 2010 WCR started officially releasing CDs/Downloads again and in the last 20 months they have already released 20 releases with many many more planned for the future.
So what's the difference between the labels? Squigtone's focus during it's seven year run was mostly on the genre of Punk with all it's sub-catagories of Oi!, Hardcore,
Rockabilly etc... but Working Class' vision is not so near sighted and our aim is much larger we are NOT strictly a punk label. We are looking for artists playing Folk to Punk, Country to Blues, Jazz to Heavy Metal, Rock to Pop, New Age to Classical to sum it up if it's GOOD MUSIC it's GOOD MUSIC!
