So a bit of a Christmas treat today. Back in July 2002 Liberty 37 started work on their third album with a number of sessions at Mighty Atom. These have sat in the archives for 16 years. I recently dug these out. The songs were in various states of completion but a couple were pretty […]
Today is my son, Sean Simpson’s 27th birthday. When Sean was much younger back in 2004 one of his all time favourite bands was Hondo Maclean. My favourite dad moment with the label was taking Sean and some of his friends into Mighty Atom while Hondo were recording their first album. The band were brilliant […]
Today I take you all the way back to the beginning. Here is some footage of Pointblank at the very first Mighty Atom Showcase exactly 19 years ago today in 1999 – last millennia! The audio is a bit rough, the camera was old and shit, and the camera operator (me) was useless Again, let’s […]

27th September 2010 we released the lead single for Union Sound Set’s debut album Start/Stop – here’s the video for it. If you haven’t checked out this album then please do – available on Spotify, Apple Music, etc. It is an epic album!
Over the years, Adam Mason directed a bunch of videos for us. I always really liked his work – the lighting and feel to every one of them was epic. This video by Hiding With Girls is from their debut album The Torino Scale released in 11 October 2004. Great video, great track and a […]
In 2004 we got the chance to release the debut album by US band The Spill Canvas. They came over to tour the UK in November that year. The last show of the tour was at the London Metro. In the archives I found multitrack audio and video for the show, so here is the […]
