Specialist Subject Records is a record label and shop based in Bristol, UK run by Andrew and Kay.
Putting out punk and indie rock records since 2007.


Specialist Subject Records, First Floor EXCHANGE, 72-73 Old Market St, Bristol, BS2 0EJ


We have a physical shop on the first floor of EXCHANGE music venue in Bristol.
We're open 7 days a week 12pm-6pm and late for selected gigs. Free free to pop in for a browse or order online for collection.


Orders made before 12pm Monday-Friday will be posted out the same day (except orders that include pre-orders).

UK orders will be posted 1st class- £1.90 for small things (CD/7"/T-shirt/zine/pin/tote), £3.90 for big things (12"/LP/sweatshirt). Everywhere else in the world postage is very reasonably calculated by weight & destination.

Sending records in the post is a risky business, sometimes records will arrive with minor cosmetic damage to sleeves. Everything is packed in new mailers, and if records aren't sealed, we send records outside the outer sleeve. We can't offer refunds or exchanges if records arrive with slight cosmetic damage. Obviously if they're totally trashed we'll do what we can to offer a replacement / refund.


It's surprising how many demos we receive, so it's no reflection on your band if we don't find the time to respond. To date, we've not released a record purely from being sent an email. We'll be much more keen to work with you if we meet you and you're nice, you're playing lots of gigs, and our friends are raving about you. If you really want to send us your demo, please send a private stream and let us know your plans / what you'd want to get out of working with us.


If you run or write for a blog, website, radio show, podcast, zine or anything else you want to talk about Specialist Subject releases on, drop us an email at info@specialistsubjectrecords.co.uk and we'll be happy to send you press releases and downloads ahead of release dates.


If you want Specialist Subject releases for your shop or distro, drop us an email and we'll send you our wholesale prices. In mainland Europe we are distributed exclusively by Broken Silence.
