What's It All About?

Ex Gratia Recordings is the Digital and Physical release branch of  Punkvert . It's a family business done for the love of music in the tradition of doing it for yourself. The label was started in 2008 to release "Blessed are the cracked, for they let in the light" the debut LP by prank rockers – anarchistwood. An accompanying 7" single by Rude Mechanicals  "Irritating Fly" was also released at the same time. Rather share glory than covet it.

Ex Gratia has been influenced by the predominantly punk record labels of the 1970/80's such as Alternative TentaclesSSTCrass and Bluurg and sells its releases through gigs, this site and a small selection of independent record shops across the UK.
