SUPER LIMITED EDITION '15 YEARS OF HASSLE RECORDS' HALF & HALF PINK / CLEAR HAND-NUMBERED VINYL RE-ISSUE
Release Date: 30th October 2020
Super limited edition pressing of only 300! Long out of print, the 2009 debut album from the much-missed legends that were Birmingham’s Blakfish. Mixing post-hardcore punk with math-rock, a touch of metal and the best British social commentary, Champions is and always will be a classic!
"2020 marks 15 years of Hassle Records. So, we wanted to celebrate. It only seems like yesterday that we had to change the label's name (for bullshit legal reasons) and start again. But we got off to a great start putting out the Juliette Lewis EP ‘...Like A Bolt Of Lightning ‘ as the first release. And it’s been a great musical journey ever since. Never wanting be constrained by a ‘genre sound’, we work with artists and music that we simply love, and from there we just hope that other people will also love the records that we put out. This ethos has been the ultimate foundation in the label's history from the start. To that end, for our 15th anniversary we have decided to re-issue 15 records from varying parts of our history and catalogue, all as limited vinyl-only releases. Hopefully our choices accurately represent what a diverse sound we have to the label, and that the passion we have for the music and the bands shines through)."
