Artists with releases on this label:


"Newest Industry is a DIY, underground UK punk rock record label that is run by Jo and Dave out of a house in Cardiff, Wales. We have been in existence since the Summer of 2002 where we spent many months working towards our first release, the "Dry River Fishing" CD album by NO CHOICE. Even though the amount of releases we have out is now into double figures, we are by no means really any bigger than when we first started. We do not have a "proper" office, and we do not shift thousands upon thousands of units a week. We try to do our best with releases by bands that we absolutely love, and very much respect the fact that these bands even want to work with us in the first place. We will never, ever put a release out we are not one hundred percent into. What would be the point in that? Also, we have two cats called Chap and Arnold. They're great."

Newest Industry down, but not out...
