The hugely influential Californian based hip-hop group Ugly Duckling came into our warehouse and performed a medley of three songs on the Lick stage. As luck would have it, our neighbours were having an important meeting or something and pulled the plug on us just before the end. Booooo! But it was still awesome, and the band were totally cool with everything – huge thanks to them. Lick. x
Lick music is a cassette label we started so we could put our friends single.
After we managed to get it played on Radio 1 and 6Music, and covered by NME, Drowned in Sound and Quietus, other bands started to ask us if we could put their music out.
We do small runs of cassettes and give the band half of them as an advance payment. So far we’ve put out two tapes, but have another 3 lined up. See our past releases in the shop, and go here for the latest news.
