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 their hands into hot vinyl to manufacture records for the likes of Boomgates, Blank Realm, Bitch Prefect, Terrible Truths + more. This year, we will celebrate our fifth birthday, with celebrations in some of our favourite venues across the country.
Our birthday celebration this year will also include the release of a double-LP vinyl compilation, brilliantly titled ‘5 Years of Bedroom Suck Records’ and charting the label’s inception in Brisbane and growth throughout the past half-decade, including previously unreleased tracks from Love of Diagrams, Boomgates, Angel Eyes, Terrible Truths, Ela Stiles, Peter Escott + more.
