Pointless Records

Pointless Records is an small independant label that started in autumn 2011. Initially, the aim of the label was to release small runs of lathe cut records, but the focus has shifted to providing full download releases. Whilst lathe cut records, cdrs, tapes etc. will continue to be made, they will "compilment" the free download release.
