Goathead Record Collective's Mission 

We are an associaion of free thinkers and artists who want to build an infrastructure for DIY recording and low-cost music distribution in the Southwest.  

Our Mission is: 

  • to make available the resources to self-produce records
  • to educate interested members of the community in sound engineering
  • to record and preserve the distinct folk and punk culture which has arisen in the southwestern United States
  • to actively promote creative and unique folk and punk bands from all over the Southwest.
 
Not Your Average Record Label

Unlike typical record labels which privilege a select few with a massive amount of resources, we plan to take a very small amount of resources and share those resources with the community. Even if you aren't "on" our label, we would love to help you produce your own album, teach you how to book tours, teach you how to distribute your music independently, and have tons of fun while enabling others to do the same! 

 

Building a Community Recording Studio 

In order to make all this happen, we need to invest in some equipment.  That's where you come in! We are asking the community to make contributions so we can purchase all the equipment necessary for a mobile recording studio.  This equipment won't belong to any individual, but will be the property of the collective and all who need its services. Anyone is welcome to join the collective and record with this equipment, even if they're are not a band on the label.  Anyone interested in learning sound engineering can learn on this equipment.  

Specifically, we need:

  • a reliable laptop 
  • sound mixing software
  • a mixing board
  • vocal mics and instrument mics
  • mic cables
  • studio headphones
  • monitors
  • an external harddrive

The cost of these items will total to roughly $4000.  That's a lot of clams. Could you give us some of your clams? 

Once this initial fundraising is completed, the record collective plans to be sustainable through volunteer work and modest merch sales.

We have great faith in our fellow musicians and DIYers, locally and around the world. With your help, we can probably pull this off.

Let's do the most with the least.  Let's do it together.
