Recreation Records began in 2010. The intention was to revive the music that Andy Chester had written for working class people, that the music industry had no idea how to sell. There is one Jooble advert on this site, to help working class people find work. It is a free advert. Recreation makes no money from advertising.
After distributing our music digitally and getting no sales, despite worlwide distribution, we recently decided to take Hulio Ridiculo, Kid Dynamo and My Computer down from the usual digital retailers.
The other bands in this shop go their own way. There are no contracts.
We have started to manufacture CD's and will also be releasing vinyl soon. Recreation now has physical distribution.
We have also deleted all social media, because it is a social poison and we don't encourage people to talk to machines or algorithms.
This is music to listen to, not watch. People are listening with their eyes more than ever. The album as an artform has more or less disappeared. Musicianship and poetry have been replaced by marketing.
Oh and by the way, Andy Chester is not depressed. It is called empathy, dickheads.
