Quarter Inch Collective is a little record label that likes to put out tapes. We like all kinds of music, especially the weird and beautiful types.
Our first release was Quompilation No. 1 in January 2011 which featured 13 of Ireland’s best young bands covering some of their favourite songs of 2010. It was a huge success and the cassette sold out pretty much immediately following a rollicking ol’ launch gig in the Lower Deck. Further releases followed in 2011 in the form of No Fi, Lo Fi, Hi Fi, a collection of B-Sides and Rarities from legendary Dublin alternative-types, Estel and a split cassette from Ginola and Turning Down Sex called It’s A Disagreeable Thing To Be Whipped.
2012 has so far brought the release of Quompilation #2, which completely sold out at the launch in Dublin’s Crawdaddy. We’ll have four new releases in May and plenty more throughout the year, so keep an eye on things over the next few months.
We’ve also moved into promoting gigs for people and have put on some really fun things over the last few months, with some more big things to come in the near future. We do all sorts, from crusty punk in tiny venues to experimental electronics in massive churches, so get in touch if you’re looking to play in Dublin and we’ll try to help you out.
We have tapes in shops all over Ireland and you can buy things from our webshop too. There’s also a load of free mixtapes and some EPs and albums that you can check out here.
