Kagoule

Here’s some incredible photos of our stage featuring Blessa, Kagoule, Wyldest & FURS taken by the incredible Neil Anderson over at Wild Blanket. You can find more of his work here including more Southsea Fest pictures of our stage and also features many shows from label family Arrows of Love and Gang as well as many, many more. Check it out here. A big thank you to Neil for enduring the heat and coming to our stage a fair few times for what was an incredible line up overall, so much appreciated. 

We’ll also have photos soon from our side by Strong Island Media. 

So Southsea Fest was killer- insanely sweaty, very messy and all the bands were incredible and also lovely folk too which made the day so much better and easier to run. We’re just about recovering and we’ll have photos soon but one of the heaviest and gnarliest sets came from our very own Gang who brought the house down at Bar 56. After annihilating our stage on Saturday. they head to The Haunt this evening in Brighton for this rad show supporting the top guys Traams who killed it at our charity fest Gland Rock and Sheffield’s Best Friends. It’s going to be insane so if anybody is Brighton way tonight and had other plans, change them now and get to The Haunt.

We’re stoked to announce that we have our first batch of Strong Island Recordings branded label t-shirts that will be available to purchase from us this Saturday at our stage at Southsea Fest, upstairs of Bar 56/Al-Burrito. They’re just £10 so if you can afford to get one and help rep our little label, you will get high fives from us forever.  Above is a little sneak peak of our tees but if you’re at Southsea Fest you can see them in person. They will also be available to purchase online in the not so distant future too in the event you’re not Southsea way on Saturday but you would still like to purchase one.


Thank you,

Post Zero - A New Home & Southsea Fest

So we start here at ‘post zero’ in our new digital home. After spending time where we somewhat ‘digitally sleeping on the Strong Island’s sofa’ over on the Strong Island site we decided to temporarily find ourselves our new home being here. As well as being the launch of our new site It’s also a rather self-indulgent post as today, is in fact, two years to the day we launched at Southsea Fest in the sweatpit cavern that is Bar Fifty-Six. Speaking of Southsea Fest and Bar Fifty-Six, on Saturday we return to both where we host ‘Strong Island Recordings Presents’ with a handful of some of our favourite new acts around. On the label front,Rickyfitts and Gang will be representing Strong Island Recordings on the day in mighty fine form at our stage bringing their heavy doom-grunge whilst the rest of our stage features some of our favourite new bands period with Blessa, Kagoule, Theo Verney, Wyldest, FURS, Eighteen Nightmares At The Lux, Eloise Keating and Looks all playing our stage on Saturday.

 

Elsewhere on the bill extended label family The Boy I Used to Be play the Wine Vaults for ‘Pie & Vinyl presents’ at 15.00 as well as a second set by Rickyfitts at the same venue at at 15.45.

 

You can check out our SoundCloud playlist of all the acts playing our stage here and you also purchase Southsea Fest tickets here. Hopefully we’ll see some of you at Southsea Fest where the sweat drips from the walls and the rum & beer flows.
