After spending the past decade being an underground music world champion Dan Newton has finally jumped from artist to entrepreneur and is proud to announce the launch of his record label “HEAVY AND WEIRD RECORDS” – Established in late 2012 – Heavy and Weird originally started as an online blog that covered music, politics and art. After a fruitful couple of years as building himself as one of the most honest and thoughtful critics in the blogosphere Dan made a decision to expand the Heavy and Weird universe to go just beyond being another music blog.

Steeped in the tradition of Dischord and Ipecac “HEAVY AND WEIRD RECORDS” is a boutique label for Dan to release music he believes needs a voice, and that is otherwise ignored by the music industry in general.  Dan is also focusing on working with other artists outside of his community to help expand Heavy and Weird from being strictly a Brisbane based organisation.

  1. Is this the same Dan Newton that frequented pseudo political/Music of Roger Waters BBS late 90’s? Username Apbasos9. If so TheGunnersDream and Lixcaliber are keen to touch base again.
