About Specialist Subject
Give us the background... when and why did you decide to open a record shop?
Specialist Subject Records started as a fictional record label by co-owner Andrew for a university project in 2007. The name was resurrected for a release by his new band once he graduated, 10 years and 60+ releases later we’re now a full time punk record label and shop! We’ve never pretended to be a big business, if people want that they can buy from Amazon. We’ve always done our own mailorder through the website so the shop was our way of making the label and distro more accessible and open to people.
