Battle Worldwide Recordings adheres to an old school ideology stemming back from the 1980s punk scene labels like SST, Merge and Au Go Go – and that’s where the Battle Worldwide Recordings story begins. Founder Darren John Smallman grew up in the Australian punk underground, spending many fierce years in the loud and influential band Warped as well as Toad and The Sun & The Silver Anthology artists. From there, he developed Low Transit Industries, a record label and touring agency which released classic records by Okkervil River, C.W. Stoneking, Thalia Zedek, Black Mountain, Subaudible Hum and Of Montreal.
“One of my favourite labels… check out every band they have been putting out, they’re really on it in terms of quality control”Jack Rabid, Big Takeover
