Squidco Cost Sale

At the end of this year Squidco will have been in business for 14 years. That's a lot of time to accumulate releases in our catalog, and also a lot of time for labels and distributors to come and go. If you walked through our warehouse you would find plenty of titles that came from those labels and distributors, and plenty of titles that were once very active but which have sat on our shelves for too long. This year we've been actively trying to reduce that part of our catalog, to make room for new releases from our current set of excellent labels and distributors. To that end, we've put more than 500 titles on sale at our cost, letting you, an audio explorer, have a chance to hear these great releases at a great price. take a good look at this list of albums which also includes plenty of current artists and title from active labels, in formats including CD, LP, Cassette, Magazines and DVDs.
