About A1(M) Records
labels passion for new and exciting music was fueled in a dark corner
of the northwest of England Late in the autumn of 1978, In a small dark,
damp corner of England something stirred us from our mundane existence.
Music, loud, exciting, pounding, dark, happy, grinding, soulful,
twisted, soaring. Music had a purpose and it shaped our lives- We had
missed the first wave, but were shaped by its backwash.
So began a love
affair for live and exciting music, crashing guitars, pounding electro
beats, energy and passion and any type of music that showed no respect
for rules and the traditions of the past and everyone could be part of.
Music feeds dreams and keeps us alive, we live, exist and die to the
sounds of music, it makes you happy, makes you sad, lifts you up, and
throws you down.
collided with a time when music made you feel special and invincible,

As the Years past we fell out of love with music but it remained in our
soul, - it never goes away. We were reunited with live music in 2005,
ran official Manchester In the City gigs from 2007 onwards and worked
with over 300 unsigned bands.
We self released three independent 22
track compilation records feature the best of Cambridge and UK unsigned
music between 2005 and 2009. We continue to support new music and set up
this label to launching new and exciting music that's fun, and loud,
interesting and challenging.
We live, exist and die to the sounds of music, it makes you happy, makes
you sad, lifts you up, and throws you down. Enjoy it, savor every note
and beat. Music styles and fashion come and go, but real music leaves a
lasting impression and forms the soundtrack to your life.
