Our Ratbag Records collection is inspired by our love for music and the bands that play a part in building culture. Music is a big part of our daily lives; whether it be jamming out in the car on the way to work or seeing one of our favourite bands play live. It's something that adds a bit of spice to our life and allows us to escape the mundane. This collection is our ode to promoting and supporting Aussie bands that continue to create and expand arts and culture this Aus music month.
In 2017 Aussie band, Dune Rats, were living the dream - running around the world, playing shows and festivals, releasing music and having an absolute ball. They had a record deal, and an amazing team that supported their every move (well most of them anyway 😊).
Dunies really wanted to share love and help emerging acts they were hyped on to get a leg up in the madness that is the music biz. And so Ratbag Records was born, with the aim to giving young bands and artists access to funding and resources help them build their careers.
The first signing was good mates, Skegss, who were just starting out.. now they are touring sold out shows around the globe! The roster continued to grow with the help of label home BMG and now includes Skegss, Gooch Palms, Pandamic, Totty and Denmark punk band Molly with more on the way.
