Who & What Are We?

Sour Grapes Records is a DIY Promoter and Manchester Record Label.  We put on and release psych, fuzz and garage rock music typically, and have been doing so the last couple of years.  Sour Grapes also runs Mars Tapes down in Afflecks Palace (probably the last cassette shop in the UK). So stop by if you fancy a brand new walkman and some Elvis on tape.

We host a bi and sometimes tri-monthly gig night at Big Hands Bar and host larger events across various Manchester venues.
