Make-That-A-Take Records is a DIY punk rock record label/collective based on the east coast of Scotland.

We put on punk shows. We also release music.

We are an anti-sexist, anti-racist, anti-fascist, anti-homophobic collective.

We have a fairly open view of what constitutes ‘punk’.

We also promote BOOK YER ANE FEST, a DIY punk/hxc festival to benefit Safe-Tay.

“Battle Lines From Better Times” is the new four song EP from Glasgow melodic punks Sink Alaska.

This EP was recorded, mixed and mastered by Chris “The Maestro” Gordon at Three Hands Studio in Glasgow. The EP is available on limited edition digipack CD and digital download.

This is the fourth release from the band after their eponymous 2013 demo, contributions to the “Roaster” 4-Way Split 10″ and the sold-out “The Path of Least Resistance” / “Among The Wretched” Double A-Side 7″ single.

We don’t have many copies remaining so act fast if you want to grab one of the first pressing. Huge thanks to everyone who has picked up a copy thus far.

The EP has received positive critical acclaim including this absolutely glowing review from DyingScene.com.

“What We’ve Got” / “Four Hours” is a split single in support of the Refugee Survival Trust.

This split single is a collaborative release between the artists and three Scottish independent record labels; Make That A Take Records, Anti-Manifesto and Struck Dum Records. 100% of the money raised from the EP release and benefit/release show will go directly to the Refugee Survival Trust, Edinburgh (www.rst.org.uk).

The RST was set up in 1996 as a reaction to the problem of refugees and asylum claimants being made destitute in Scotland. Grants made by the RST either alleviate poverty and destitution, or help refugees and asylum claimants to overcome obstacles in accessing educational and employment opportunities. Their work is as vital today as it has ever been.

Thanks to Billy Liar, Paper Rifles, James Johnson and Steve Cardno for putting this project together and everyone who’s supported thus far.
