Psychotronic Rock and Roll!

Zorch Radio Episode 209: Top 6 Record Labels


Zorch Radio Episode 209: Top 6 Record Labels

Airdate: Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

Never a dull night when there are hours of psychobilly radio stacked on top of each other! This evening, the chat room was buzzing about favorite record labels. Back in the hey-day of 45s, the label to the record signified a brand and reputation for the type of music that was pressed in the wax. These days, the major labels are fairly watered down, but when it comes to psychotronic rock and roll, there are archives of small and independant labels, all following that original motif.

Many labels familiar to the Zorch Radio library were discussed in the Real Punk Radio chat room. Razmataz, Alopecia!, Crazy Love, Kix 4U, Big Beat, Rockin’ Psycho, Flying Saucer, Splatterhouse, Crypt, and many more were frequent topics throughout the night. There’s got to be a label that is a Seal-Of-Approval in your book… so let us know in a comment down below! Just because this episode is over, doesn’t mean the conversation has ended.
