99 Per Cent launch record label – backed by Alan Moore

Occupation Records is a benefit record label set up to fund Occupy London and the global occupy movement. The label is run under the ethos of Occupy and has recently been backed by V for Vendetta creator Alan Moore.

In the drive to gain funds for the project, Occupation Records are offering signed “V” masks by Alan, as well as signed copies of V for Vendetta, limited and signed prints by Jamie Reid (who designed all the Sex Pistols album art) as well as vinyls, CD’s and T’s in exchange for donations to support the label and the work of Occupy.

“Music has the power to inspire and reach people who haven’t heard about Occupy yet – and that’s what Occupation Records intends to do,” said a team spokesperson. “Also lots of artists want to find a way to help and thank those already involved and we can help them with that.

“We are creating a new record label that plans to help musicians and artists around the world to get involved, build, support and fund the Occupy movement in London, around the UK and Ireland, and globally.

“All profits from Occupation Records releases will go to Occupy London, occupations across the UK and Ireland, and the global movement.”

Financial support will help fund start up costs for Occupation Records as they prepare for the release of the Folk the Banks album – and the other four albums currently being lined up! The initial funding asked for includes office set up costs, marketing, licensing, manufacturing and worldwide distribution costs.
