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 put out records.

We aim to contribute positively to our community and believe in the equality of and equity for all humans regardless of gender, race, religion, nationality, class, sexual orientation, status or any other perceived identifier.

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

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