This month we discuss the pros and cons of starting your own label. Is it wise to jump on the bandwagon of pressing vinyl? Join the discussion in the comments below.

Hi Attack. One for your HELP feature…

I’m thinking of starting a label to release some of my mates’ music on vinyl. Between us we’ve got quite a few tracks ready for release now and we’re into the idea of doing it on our own rather than trying to get other labels to release it. I’m not really expecting to make any money but I’d like to break even. Is this a really stupid idea? I’d like to hear other people’s experience of doing it and whether any of your readers have advice on how to do it, what to do, what not to do, how to promote releases, how to distribute, etc. Thanks
