USWelcome to Infinite Hive: a record label started by me, Edinburgh based show-off Mr John, to work with musicians and allow them to fully express themselves, find studios, an audience for their music and fully realise their visions. It started with me forming a band called MEOW and it sort of evolved into this record label.
Please fill in the contact form to email us directly, regarding bands, releases, anything at all. Please put a relevant note in the "subject" field so I know what you need.
If you are looking for gigs or touring, scroll down and contact the venues or promoters listed below. Not me.
Oh and plan ahead: gigs require months of planning & promotion, you can have that advice for free.
STORESThe following music stores stock CD & vinyl copies of our records and are great places to visit. Some are now purely online, existing in an immortal digiverse, fulfilling the function of supplying you with real life objects you will love forever.
