Scratched Media is a Lincolnshire, UK based DIY community/label/blog/whatever run by me, Adam. It was started in 2008 as a means of releasing my band Push the Ghost's first demo and as a way of trying to inject some community spirit into the then dwindling local hardcore scene. The first Scratched Media site was then created (shout out to Dan Brown for the hosting) along with it's own forum (kicking it old school) and then further releases were planned with other UK hardcore/punk/alternative bands, including free compilations featuring American bands.
Scratched Media continues to strive to keep the DIY spirit alive...I'm a firm believer that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. I'll blog every now and then about stuff musically related, tweet about crap and try to keep the gig calendar up to date...I'm not promising it'll be amazing and if you want to be a critic, just get involved instead...I always encourage people to get in touch and contribute to the site!
