CONFRONT RECORDINGS TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY 1996 - 2016

 

This year is the twentieth anniversary of Confront Recordings, the label I started way back in 1996 when I was just a little boy. There is plenty of celebratory activity planned throughout the year including two festival concerts arranged at the Hundred Years Gallery on 24th September and Cafe Oto on 30th October.

CONFRONT RECORDINGS : Your Reminiscences

As part of the ongoing Twentieth Anniversary celebrations, I thought it would be interesting to send out an open invitation asking folks to submit reminisences about how Confront has impacted on their listening habits; how you found the label, first purchases, highlights, lowlights, introduction to new artists, annoyances, recommendations, albums that changed your life, albums you played once and wish you’d never heard, Confront concerts you attended, suggestions for the future, your own personal reviews ….. anything you like, Confront related - the good, the bad and the ugly. Any length, brief or in-depth.

 

Send your replies to markwastell@btinternet.com

Responses will be published on a designated page on the Confront Recordings website.

It’ll be a pleasure to share your thoughts and experiences and will help shape the next stages of the label.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes Mark
