Reckless Yes RecordsReckless Yes was founded at the start of 2016 by Peter Darrington (bassist in Cable and The Hudson Super 6, music journalist and broadcaster) and Sarah Lay (editor of Louder Than War – and boss here at Noble and Wild).

They are running live music events including a bi-monthly DIY style night called Six Impossible Things and touring shows for band’s including Bivouac. The duo also DJ together.

Pete said: “Launching Reckless Yes as a record label is exhilarating and it’s an honour to be starting our catalogue with a band I admire.

“I’m thrilled to be working with Bivouac. They inspired me to be in a band and were not just an influence musically but also mentors. A brilliant band with songs to die for whose comeback material proves they’re still relevant today.”

Reckless Yes by Kristen GoodallSarah said: “Bivouac have meant a lot to me and Pete, in different ways, over the years and so to work with them on the hometown show of their summer tour was a thrill in itself.

“It’s been a wonderful surprise to us to now be putting out their new material, and becoming a record label feels like a very natural next step for Reckless Yes.”
