Little gem was founded in 2014 by the people responsible for Record Store Gay & I Heart the Monster Hero as a one stop shop & label for the best in independent music from Ireland & the rest of the world.
We at little gem have had 7 releases to date which we have funded ourselves and now we need some help to get the new GODHATESDISCO album pressed to wax.
GODHATESDISCO have won critical acclaim for their unique "pre-apocalyptic /psychedelic /dream /punk" music. Great Radio is their next masterpiece.
We need to have this pressed to vinyl to do it justice and to make it a qualifying artefact for the afterlives of so many.
For those of you yet to find out, GODHATESDISCO are an unknown wave band from Dublin.
Having garnered critical praise for their debut release - "sick at heart (parts 1-3)", at the end of 2014, they went on to astound audiences with their supporting shows. With their hugely popular & influential follow up EP "Nimoy", GODHATESDISCO have established themselves as the sound of 2015.
Their re imagining of Imagination's "Just and Illusion", contributed to Record Store Gay 2015 has been hailed as genius & received national radio airplay.
"glorious music" "some of the best new music coming out of Ireland right now"- 2fm
"Uncompromising and unique, God Hates Disco have carved out a definite tonal edge" - the last mixed tape
The money raised from this fundit will pay for pressing the album to vinyl, CD & little gem player, as well as paying for the album launch with special guests on Friday July 24th at The Grand Social, Dublin 1.
Having personally funded all of the releases on little gem records so far & additionally having opened our very own record shop to support independent artists, we appreciate your support <3
