Originally DG was going to be a re-issue punk label but by 1990 the temptation to release current bands got too much and singles by The Roadholders, The Sect and the debut Manic Street Preachers followed.
In early 1991 we released our first single by Billy Childish & Thee Headcoats, many more swiftly followed including the debut Headcoatees single as well. We now work closely with Billy looking after his entire catalogue.
Between 1992 & 1994 we released the debut single from Helen Love along with great one off singles with Atari Teenage Riot, New Bomb Turks, Wat Tyler & Asian Dub Foundation. We also started working with Fabienne Delsol, originally with The Bristols and up to now with her three solo albums.
By 1995 DG was a full time occupation concentrating on the UK garage scene based around Toe Rag studios in London and Slim Chance’s Wild Western Rooms in Archway as well as top one off Indie & Punk releases as well.
In 1995 we released the debut Holly Golightly album ‘The Good Things’ little did we know then that she would go on to be our biggest artist. We have now released over twelve albums by Holly plus four with her duo Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs, with Lawyer Dave.
Over the next 20 years we released records by some great bands and solo artists like Graham Day, Cyanide Pills, J Church, TV Personalities, Armitage Shanks, Pete Molinari, Piney Gir, Thee Spivs, Mikabomb, Priscillas, classic re-issues from Deep Wound, Talulah Gosh, The Milkshakes, Revillos, Case, The Chefs, Buzzcocks & more.
We have now released over 500 different records on every conceivable color of vinyl as well as having the full catalogue available digitally via iTunes, Spotify etc. We also export to every part of the planet that wants our releases.
Now in our 28th year the releases keep coming, we’ve added Johnny Moped, The Senior Service, Giuda, Cowbell, Severed Limb plus there's lots of Billy Childish related releases including his latest combo, CTMF.
We've also added a Discogs shop for most of our stuff plus lots of hard to find bits n bobs.
