Captured Tracks Partners With Flying Nun


Flying Nun obviously influenced the Columbus, Ohio Siltbreeze and CDR bands well as the world. So it is of local note that Brooklyn Label Captured Tracks is partnering with Flying Nun to reissue some of the influential labels back catalog.

Here is what the labels themselves had to say about the partnership:

“We at Captured Tracks are beyond ecstatic to work with Flying Nun Records for this series of reissues. As a young record collector, I always saw the label as a recommendation of quality and a constant source of inspiration. I would comb the shelves of every record store imaginable to secure anything and everything I could find. When I first heard the news that they’d bought back the rights, this partnership was something that was lingering in the back of my mind. I’m more than pleased that we can have any sort of involvement in revitalizing this amazing back catalog and returning it to record shelves the world over.”
-Mike Sniper (Captured Tracks Founder)

“We at Flying Nun are super pleased to be setting up shop with Captured Tracks, who have been showcasing some of the most exciting new music around. We think this brilliantly compliments Flying Nun’s 30 years of releasing some of the most interesting bands to come out of the remote south pacific. I can’t wait to get my teeth into helping people discover and rediscover some of these records.”
-Ben Howe (Flying Nun Managing Director)
