PLASTERER RECORDS, based in South London, is the record label of skateboarder, artist and Wonk Unit frontman Alex Johnson.
“We specialize in tunes. We don’t give a shit about the flavour of the month. We don’t chase. We operate outside conventional circles. We support songwriting talent. We hate the middle of the road. We love beautiful, we love extremes. We are political. We believe in social justice and equality. We are socialists, but we don’t preach. We walk the walk instead. Love thy neighbour, treat others how you’d like to be treated. We are DIY, we love our scene, DIY punk rock.” – Alex Johnson.
November will see the label release a UK pressing of The Dopamines album, ‘Tales Of Interest’ on “Rubbish Blue” and “Horrible Green” 12 inch vinyl and the the 12-track release, ‘Roach’, from Manchester pop-punks, Aerial Salad on CD – Both records are available through the Plasterer Records store: http://bit.ly/PlastererRecordsShop
Speaking on the two releases, Johnson said “I played with The Dopamines last year, on tour in the US. They were messy and all over the place, but man, the sound they made left me floored. Out of the chaos, they produce a noise that is just different to everyone else. The Dopamines made me wanna pick up my guitar and write a punk record.
“Aerial Salad are my little scamps from Manchester. Bless ’em. They’re not even out of their teens yet but Jamie’s songwriting is as honest and real as it gets. Pure, raw, angst. I’m serious, if Green Day had released this after Dookie it would be classed as their best release.”
