Monday Records is going through a process of rediscovering who we are and why we were put on this planet. It’s not the first time either. We still receive emails from bands and poets about Happy and we still get sent demos from bands that want to be signed. That was fun and we’ll probably do it again later in the year. But for now we’re turning our focus toward recorded music and the releasing there of. The guys at DPM Creative Group (who we are clearly in cahoots with), are helping re-design and re-develop our brand and website. We’re going to be doing this on the fly so expect ongoing changes. What will emerge is the true heart and soul of the label and people will be able to see that (we hope). We’re also talking to a couple of Sydney bands / singer songwriters so expect some growth on the stable front.

An apt albeit a borrowed title for the first official Monday Records blog entry. I’m Radi Safi and I started Monday Records in 2005 after the release of my first EP Stamps & Coins. That was done under the moniker of Opanoni. For the next few weeks I’m going to be re-living and re-establishing the birth of the label and publishing a series of blogs, songs, links and videos. The reason is simple. I’m doing it to reinvigorate a sense of passion for what I originally set out to do and to give the work, the label, the people that have been involved (without which it would not have been possible) and above all else the music the recognition it deserves and a place to share it all. I never got a chance to treat Monday Records like a new business, like a baby that deserves total care and nurturing. I’ve been busy with other things and by default, by way of it having been around for five years or more, it won’t ever be like that fresh start up fever that all new businesses enjoy. But I think it can be more. Certainly different. Definitely important. It starts here but this isn’t ground zero.
