Our friends at the Richter Collective are calling it a day, after years of releasing records and touring up and down the island. It’s no doubt a hard time for small, independent record labels globally, and in four years Richter had a massive impact on the independent music scene in Dublin. Such ventures are certainly for the love and not the money, but love alone can’t run a record label or much else!
Having released some fantastic records from acts like Adebisi Shank, Squarehead, Enemies and The Redneck Manifesto, the label is now going to see itself out not in sorrow but with a final blast. Next Saturday they’ll be hosting a show at the Button Factory with many of their acts on the bill, and a Richter Collective CD compilation thrown in with the door-tax of €15.
We’ll certainly be there, and well done to the lads at Richter on four fantastic years.
