Doom Cat Records is an independent record label based in Melbourne, Australia. We release music created by friends and support the work of talented visual artists along the way.1|
It spawned out of the bedroom of a grimy punk house in the suburbs, then under the name Seaby Records (named after the house). We played a lot of video games and hosted the odd house show. I’ve since relocated and the label’s name has changed, but the logo remains - Andy, the charming house cat who embodied the spirit of the house.
“I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul.”
- Jean Cocteau.
The label aligns itself with a DIY punk attitude but doesn't restrain itself to any defined niche, just stuff I think is cool and worthy of sharing. At the label's nucleus is an appreciation of awesome music, art ...and cats. All our physical releases are (or will be) available as free digital downloads - just have a hunt through the releases section on this website. "Buy the atoms, get the bits free"2 is a philosophy I like to operate within. ～(・ε・)～
