The Revolution is NUB!
Nub Music was formed in Jan 2007 by ‘Wilful Maverick’ Mark Christopher Lee (Award Winning Composer and founder member of John Peel faves, cult indie band The Pocket Gods).
It was ahead of its time being one of the UK’s first digital only labels. Distributed via The Orchard, Mark used Nub Music as a vehicle for his band The Pocket Gods and his friends bands to release their music – little did he know it would grow into the iconic and successful indie label that it has now become!
With a huge array of music industry contacts, Nub artists have regularly enjoyed BBC radio support from the likes of Huw Stephens, Steve Lamacq, Tom Robinson and Bob Harris amongst others as well as substantial global airplay.
The last year has brought Nub Music into the forefront of the music industry’s collective conciousness with the groundbreaking series of “100×30” albums by The Pocket Gods and Friends (which include Owen Paul, Tom Green, & Mungo Jerry) winning a Guinness World Record for most amount of tracks on a digital release. Spotify, and other similar global streaming set ups pay out a paltry royalty once a song hits thirty seconds and then NO more – so why write longer songs?
Why not adapt your song writing craft to the YouTube channel/media switching generation? The “100×30” albums have gained huge media attention, featuring in the Wall St Journal, The Independent, Forbes Magazine, The Evening Standard, ITV and even Billboard the US music magazine who heralded it to be “Hauling digital music and the modern world over the coals.”
This attention is set to continue with Nub Music’s first Movie release – Weird The Life & Times Of A Pocket God – which is coming to Amazon Prime in the summer of 2019. The film is about The Pocket Gods’ rollercoaster history of the highs and lows of being in an indie band. It also highlights frontman Mark Christopher Lee’s struggles with mental health issues.
Mark started Nub Country Records in 2007 and is the creative driving force behind The Pocket Gods and Kill The Giants as well as the Guinness Book Of Records breaking 100×30 series of albums. He lives in St Albans and is an avid Huddersfield supporter and UFO lover!
Guy has worked at Nub for 7 years now, performing with his band The Boy From Space and collaborating with The Kings Pond Shantymen with the single ‘Haul Away Joe’. He creates a lot of artwork and design for the Label, lives in Salisbury and supports Southampton FC for his sins!
