Creative Partnership

Love Police Recording and Tapes

Finger-on-the-pulse touring and festival enterprise Love Police have started a record label, called Love Police Records & Tapes.

The new business will make vinyl, CDs and “yes, cassettes when it feels right”.

The move is a creative partnership between Love Police principal Brian Taranto (BT) from Love Police Touring (Gillian Welch, Justin Townes Earle, Black Keys, John Prine, Tony Joe White etc), its festivals (Boogie, Out On The Weekend) and merch worlds, with Dave Laing (from Dave Laing Publicity, Warner Music, Shock Records, Dog Meat Records, and for putting together tours by PP Arnold, Alejandro Escovedo and more).

The new enterprise has four releases to begin with.

A very raw and very early recording of the WARUMPI BAND playing mostly covers, including a blasting version of the early Eagles rocker “Already Gone”.

American up & comer MELISSA CARPER, with a vocal country styling.

Melbourne’s ALEX HAMILTON, who is a part of inner-Melbourne’s folk/country-rock scene as both an accompanist and a singer/songwriter/guitarist. 

Alternative-country anti-folk rock-and-roll singer-songwriter MYLEE GRACE from the Northern Rivers area, whose record has been described as “music that makes you feel like you’re on holidays with friends…”

All albums are released November 19 with more to come and you can get more info HERE.

“I’ve been bringing international Artists to Australia for over 20 years. Most of them have a record label with representation here, but some don’t. Some are only just starting out on their journey and don’t have a record deal anywhere. This label is here to license and release quality recorded music locally that we believe in. Music that might otherwise slip through the cracks, and not find a home here. We get to tell the story of that music and Artist in a bigger way. With an album, with a tour, holding hands the whole way. We may also delve into the past and bring back some forgotten gems. We may look down the street and discover something right there that is undeniable. Our ears are open.”


“How’s about we do a collection of ‘70s Melbourne Outlaw Country and a Mangrove Boogie Kings compilation?”

Dave Laing
