All Ages Records, Camden, London

All Ages Records is London’s only exclusively Punk record shop, therefore the amount of RSD releases we carry is always limited to those which are relevant to us, however this year in the true spirit of DIY culture we decided to contact a load of small independent UK punk labels who we deal with directly and ask them to create something exclusively for us for RSD.  We had an overwhelmingly positive response from nearly everyone we asked and for RSD we will have 18 exclusive releases (confirmed so far, possibly two more) which are all extremely limited (most between 10 – 20 copies), are mostly individually numbered, have handmade packaging and artwork and will only be on sale in All Ages.

‘Listening to ‘Drink Me Dry’ gives you the distinct feeling that this is the beginning of something brilliant.’
