This year we’ve sold turntables, beer, truckers caps, guitar picks, tote bags and now art. We asked Ani for The Lovely Wars if she could create something for our 25th birthday. I love her artwork so was thrilled when she said yes. We’ve not used the image on anything yet but to me, it screams […]
The 2013 Diverse Music Christmas Party!! Houdini Dax will be headlining after their rather fantastic support set to Islet at our birthday gig. They’ll be supported by the amazing (non-local) Dingus Khan who some of you may’ve seen play earlier in the year. There’s loads of them. They wear robes. And have their own dance […]
This is the Christmas single by Welsh football’s number one horn based supporters band, The Barry Horns. It’s out on 2nd December. Sadly it doesn’t have a physical release so you’ll have to get it from iTunes but as all the proceeds go to Prostate Cymru, it’s well worth it.
Paper Aeroplanes have recorded a little video of them playing ‘Flee’ for the Cambridge Sessions. Sarah is sporting a rather lovely Diverse Music baseball cap.

The ever wonderful Uber Rock (Uberrock? Uber-rock?) website reviewed our gig on Saturday 28th October at Le Pub. It featured Londoners Death Pedals (who have a new fan) and local types Denim Snakes, The Sick Livers and The Lash. We get a mention too, which is lovely. Have a read of it HERE.
As many of you know The Vestals played at our 25th birthday celebrations last weekend and also played in the shop on Record Store Day, they’re embarking on a project that sees different local bands covering a song from a soundtrack. They’ve started the ball rolling themselves by covering A Real Hero from Drive. Enjoy.
Yep. 25 years old. Diverse has moved 3 times since 1988 and spawned a vinyl mail order company and a record label. The shop is still going strong though and we have some pretty cool plans to celebrate our birthday. Firstly, we’ll be having a party. Or three. We have 3 nights of music in […]
Emo / Post-Hardcore The original album is possibly my favourite album ever. The band split up after making it, leaving that, an EP and a couple of split 7″s. Every song they recorded is on this expanded edition plus 2 that were written at the time (the mid-90s) and recorded last year. If you like […]
