Hi! We’re Cats? Aye! Records. We are a small label based between Huddersfield and Southampton and we formed in January 2012. There are five of us that co- run the label and Kev, who is Huddersfield based also promotes under the name Cats? Aye! The label started as a drunk idea in Kev’s living room. During our first year, we have some incredible opportunities to work with aritists such as Arliss Nancy, Wegrowbeards, Young Attenborough, Kelly Kemp, Roo Pescod (Bangers), Giles Bidder (Great Cynics) and many more. We’ve also had success with a free download compilation featuring bands covering songs for free download and have been lucky enough to work with the likes of The Menzingers, The Flatliners and Jon Snodgrass among others.
