IDLES

IDLES came just when we feared punk, aggression, and rock with a message was gone.  Thank god for IDLES.

Yes! LocoDistro is always proud to support the boys from Live4ever who continue to deliver with their finger-on-the-pulse of the British Rock scene—and never ending passion for the bands and their music.

Enter post-punk mega-force… IDLES Whether chocolate milk tasting at Whole Foods in Austin TX, reviewing vinyl albums at famed Waterloo Records, trying on dresses and wigs at Lucy in Disguise with Diamonds or rocking out at their crazy live performances, there’s certainly never a dull moment with Bristol’s Post Punkers IDLES !

And here is a recent video…  IDLES AF GANG.

Music Business Packaging—from Distro to Sponsorship

You have a lot on your plate—and most labels and managers don’t specialize in every single aspect of the music business, anyway.  Not to mention that a fair amount of today’s artists (emerging and established) no longer have traditional label relationships anymore. LocoDistro provides an unique, strategically based service that supplements what you have with what you need.  Contact us if you want to grow your music business.  We can help.

Frank Turner @ The Live4ever Media Lounge

LocoDistro was a proud sponsor of the Live4ever Media Lounge at SXSW2018

British singer-songwriter Frank Turner talks us through the inspirations and influences behind his latest solo album Be More Kind, trying to unite using a campaign slogan that has divided a nation, as well as the countless other projects which he always has on the go. Frank was one of this year’s SXSW artist highlights for sure.

WAR by U2 came out how long ago?

Some Rock History for ya… Today in 1983 (ahem 35 years ago) U2 released their 3rd studio album War. Produced by Steve Lillywhite, the album is regarded as their first overtly political album with ‘Sunday Bloody Sunday’ and ‘New Year’s Day.’ War became the band’s first #1 album in the UK—knocking Michael Jackson’s Thriller from the top spot.
