Bedroom Suck Records began as the present tense of Joe Alexander and Sam McCabe, two down-and-out sharehouse types direct from the steamy sauna of Brisbane suburban living. One day the amount of good music snaking out from under the doors of friends and distant relatives became too much to bear, and in early 2009 what became known as ‘bedroom suck’ was born.
Since then, B-S-R have been honoured to dip our hands into hot vinyl to manufacture records for the likes of Boomgates, Blank Realm, Bitch Prefect, Terrible Truths + more. This year, we celebrate our fifth birthday with celebrations across the country hosted at some of our favourite venues who have helped us from the very beginning. These parties will aim to celebrate how lucky we feel to have worked with so much amazing music over the years, as well as to look forward to what’s in store for the label next year.
We will also celebrate this milestone with the release of a double-LP compilation. With a total of 27 tracks, this collection aims to document the label’s inception in Brisbane and growth throughout the country.
