For the final UWS issue of the season, I spoke to Melissa Moore, United fan and co-founder of Birds Hit Records, a Manchester-based label specialising in short-run vinyl pressings.
Or, as the website says:
“WE PRODUCE CUSTOM ONE-OFF AND SHORT RUN VINYL RECORDS, ALL LOVINGLY HAND-CUT IN MANCHESTER. NO MINIMUM ORDER!!!
Each record is a truly unique limited-edition, cut in real time on high-quality virgin vinyl using a lathe equipped with a diamond cutting stylus. We can cut 7″, 10″ and12″ records for you. We also offer a number of artwork options, from stickers to screen printing – just ask!”
Melissa spoke about the idea behind the label, how it came to fruition, and the prospect of recording the Old Trafford crowd noises!
