Indie label of some repute Captains Of Industry is closing its doors today after five years in the business.
To 'celebrate' its anniversary, the label is calling time and quitting - some might say while it's ahead with releases by An Emergency, Hell Is For Heroes, The Sound Explosion and Peace Burial At Sea in its past.
In 2003 the self-funded label's key movers 'n' shakers, among them journalist Ben Myers, set out a five-year plan. Now, they say, the circle is complete.
A book imprint will carry the Captains Of Industry name now the label has closed. Artists to have released through the label are:
21 Gun Salute, An Emergency, Blood Valley, Coyote Men, Future Ex Wife, Favez, Gay for Johnny Depp, The Grates, Hell Is For Heroes, Illegal Movers, Kinesis, Letrix, Louie, Marmadule Duke, Minus, Peace Burial At Sea, Silicon Vultures, The Sound Explosion, Sucioperro, TEAM, We Will Be Pilots
