The Hosehead Records is a little independent garage rock/punk/power pop record label in Canada.


What was the cause of starting of the label? 

– Hosehead Records is just two guys from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Myself (Patrick) and Mike. Mike plays in a band here called First Base, and in May 2011 they needed a label to release a new cassette tape EP, so we just thought of the name Hosehead and that was pretty much it! We’re lucky that people liked what we were doing, because we could have just as easily stopped and vanished right there.

What’s the main profile?

– What do you mean by this?

– Sorry but I’m stupid, that the question shows it.

What was the greatest success?

Technically speaking, we’ve sold more Steve Adamyk Band 7″s than anything else, so that’s the biggest success. in 2014 we’re putting out our first LP, which is a huge success since we started out by putting out cassettes. We’ve saved up money from anywhere possible to put out records, so it feels like it’s been a long time coming.

What was the greatest surprise in the course of your story?

The biggest surprise is that anyone cares about what we do at all! We only put out music that both of us love, so when we find other people that are into what we like, it’s a great feeling. We’re both big record collectors, so we know what it’s like to find a record we never knew existed but suddenly can’t live without.

What will be the next release?

Our next release is a split release with P. Trash Records from Germany. It’s the debut LP by Ottawa, Ontario, Canada’s Average Times. They sound like a mix between Mean Jeans, Ramones and Marked Men. From the first time I heard the song “She Knows”, I knew we had to put out their LP. That is out March 4th, 2014.
