TNSrecords Collaborate with Chain House Brewing Co
We have teamed up with Chain House Brewing Company to brew an awesome beer. The resulting Pale Ale comes with a free sampler featuring 17 punk tracks from the labels roster. You’ll also be able to order the beer directly from the brewery from 6pm on Friday alongside a limited edition ‘DIY or Die’ t-shirt – https://www.chainhousebrewing.com/shop
TNSrecords has always been run on a not-for-profit basis, alongside full-time jobs and other commitments. The DIY ethos has always been close to the label’s hearts. They first encountered the ‘DIY or Die’ slogan whilst touring mainland Europe with the band ‘Revenge of the Psychotronic Man’, where they discovered a mural in a squatted venue in The Netherlands. They were eager to adopt the phrase.
TNSrecords immediately fell in love with the ethos and organisation of Chain House Brewing Company, as well as the fantastic beers that Ryan brews. After a night out, enjoying many beers, we decided that ‘DIY or Die’ was the perfect name for our collaboration brew, perfectly embodying the ethos of both the label and the brewery.
In recent months record labels have been struggling due to huge delays at vinyl pressing plants, which has meant that many releases are stuck in ever growing queues. The label has pulled together a sampler which includes many new tracks from bands who are in this queue. The sampler is the first place most of these songs can be heard. There are also a few drinking/DIY culture anthems thrown in for you to enjoy whilst drinking your can of ‘DIY or Die’. Simply scan the QR code to access the tunes.
We’re heading to Retro Bar in Manchester to launch the beer on Saturday. Come down and try it out. We will only have 40 cans (500ml) available on the day.
We hope you enjoy the beer and the music.If there is something you want to happen, you can make it happen!
DIY or Die!
