BEAM ENDS

A few words on Beam Ends records. The name was taken from the book written by Errol Flynn about his adventurous sea travels from Australia to New Guinea  in the mid 1930s. The label Beam Ends focuses on the release of equally adventurous music in limited quantities. In the early days this was mainly music, which was readily available in fan circles or for free download on the internet, but not yet available on vinyl. Very low quantities were pressed up for our own delight and to fill these annoying gaps in our private collection. Remaining copies were used to finance the pressing or traded off for equally adventurous music. No harm was ever intended.
