Record Labels: Pink Air & Girl Alliance

Pink Air and Girl Alliance were two record labels that Stella and I did in the late 90s – mid 2000s to release our own music and the music of local bands/artists we liked. I will probably update the blurbs when I get a spare moment; now that most if not all of this stuff is out of print there is not much need for the 90s fanzine style hard sell. (Mind you I still think most of the stuff on this page has passed the test of time and is still pretty great..)

Self-released 2nd lathecut from AK all girl quartet fronted by librarian/genius Brenda D. Four songs about Nazis, Bears, Wolves, Ponies and RTR Countdown. Catchy and primal rock with a touch of outsider class. Very hip.
