Trapped Animal is a new record label founded by a music manager and a radio producer.
The label actually started life as a club night in London, promoting gig lineups focused on featuring one of our favourite bands - Let's Talk Daggers. We hooked up with some good people (VICE, Fools Paradise, Punktastic, Milky Bomb Records, GU1 PUNX) and started booking our favourite bands to play with Let's Talk Daggers, including: &U&i, Shitwife, Bellevue Days, Broker, Death Pedals. Weirds and Darkshaft!
Things started to lose control as Trapped Animal gained a reputation for hosting awesome gigs, the diary started to get way too fat! We even did a couple of shows in Brighton and Cambridge... eventually things sprawled out to include an acoustic club night too at The Slaughtered Lamb.
Somewhere along this hazy journey, Trapped Animal found The Baby Seals. The urge to release their music was too great to resist, but time was sparse with all the shows! Realising it was time to calm the fuck down, we did just that; for 2017 we bring you a new record label inspired by the underground punk and folk scenes that gave birth to Trapped Animal.
