James Tidswell of Violent Soho Launches Domestic La La Records

Violent Soho guitarist James Tidswell has turned record company mogul with the release of his new label Domestic La La Records.

“In the beginning I actually just wanted to manage Violent Soho or put out their record, but they ended up needing a guitarist so I went with that instead,” James says in a statement. “I sold my first car to put out the first Violent Soho EP Pigs and TV. Then I resigned from a job to get a severance package to put money in towards the We Don’t Belong Here album. I was lucky enough that Soho ended up getting a big record deal back in the day through Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth / Ecstatic Peace), and that was where I stopped pursuing that side and started enjoying just playing in the band. In that time, I learnt a lot about how it is to be a band, and it allowed me to have the confidence going in to do Domestic La La the right way. Now I’ve teamed up with my mates at UNIFIED Music Group to make the label a reality”.

The new label will be home to his first two signings West Thebarton and Dear Seattle.

One of the bands we’ve signed to the label is West Thebarton,” he says. “I was across them from a pretty early stage. One day, I was at home listening to triple j and “Moving Out” came on the radio. I was so amped by it, that I didn’t know how to listen to the song properly because it just had me wanting to move. I don’t exercise, but I drove straight to a gym and put the song on repeat and just started running on a treadmill. I ran six kms and I haven’t run since”.

We’ve also signed Dear Seattle. A friend sent me Dear Seattle when there was just one song out from the self-titled EP and on the first listen, my jaw dropped. I was sitting by myself at my dining room table, and I put it on repeat. It was right before I was going out, so it was like my own personal pre-drinks party. I was so amped up that I cancelled my Uber and found their email address straight away. I fell in love instantly, and I ended up being late to the dinner I was going to. I’ve been to every show since, I’m just smitten. We are releasing their EP on vinyl.
