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

We put on punk shows. We put out records. We do things.

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 book and operate shows at Conroy’s Basement in Rad Apples, Dundee. All gig tickets available here.

We host BOOK YER ANE FEST, a DIY punk/hxc benefit festival.

For all booking enquiries, please email makethatatakerecords at gmail dot com
