TQN-aut label





TQN-aut
David and Andy launched the TQN-aut label mid 2019 with the aim of supporting artists in the no-audience underground scene to get their work out to as many curious listeners as possible. The venture is non-profit making with any income going to the artists or to finance releases by artists that don’t have the means to do so themselves.

All releases can be viewed at The Old Police House @ Alphabetti Theatre, Newcastle


TQ zine
Was founded mid-2018 by Andy Wood and covers the more left of centre DIY, experimental and improvised music. The zine has 175 subscribers across 16 countries. TQHQ is based in rural Northumberland.

Copies of TQ can be viewed at The Old Police House @ Alphabetti Theatre, Newcastle and from TQ27 is available to borrow from Sherwood Forest zine library, Austin, Texas, USA


N-aut (no-audience underground tapes)
Was founded mid-2018 by David Howcroft to record and archive the DIY and experimental music scene in the North East. He has a catalogue of over 100 cassette tapes which he gives away upon request and mails out to many countries. David is based in Northumberland. 

The complete archive can be viewed at The Old Police House @ Alphabetti Theatre, Newcastle

Performing as Tesco Blockader and Morrison Blockader, David has appeared at ;
Tusk Festival (Sage Gateshead;2018), Punk Scholars Network (Newcastle University; 2019), Tusk Fringe Festival Cup and Rings (Alphabetti Theatre, Newcastle; 2019) and outside an art space in Blyth Northumberland; 2018.

TQN-aut Artists feedback 


“I would be very happy to work with TQN-aut again as it was a very good experience and they were prompt with the payment which isn’t always the case”

Gary Lang - ‘Agency’ by St James Infirmary TQN-aut 1 released 01.07.19


“What can you expect if you sign up to do an album with TQN-aut? A passion for your music, they have approached you because they think what you're doing is quality and want to bring it to a wider audience. 

Very easy communication, they are punctual and get back to you quickly and the whole project is centred round you as the artist with complete honesty to the penny on money and complete transparency around the ‘business’. They were relentless friendly from beginning to end and generous with time and money. 

Every effort is made for the finished product to realise your vision. In other words Total Quality from beginning to end. 

Andy, Dave and Ash are great guys to work with. I would recommend TQN-aut unreservedly”. 

Martin Donkin – ‘Balances’ by Shunyata Improvisation Group 

  TQN-aut 3 released 03.09.19. 


“Since discovering TQ Zine, I've found it a real source of inspiration and have been excited to discover a swathe of interesting underground music in its pages. When the opportunity to work with them via their new label arose I was more than happy to get involved.

The experience has been an excellent one. Andy and David have been really supportive and clear and the deal was simple and fair. The turnaround was quick and the CDs look great. TQ and the 

N-aut tape label are both important documenters of the no audience underground and it's been a total pleasure to be involved and work with them”

Matt Atkins – ‘The Shelter Object’ TQN-aut 6 released 03.09.19


“Working with Andy, David and Ash has mostly been a pleasure. After the initial enthusiasm for releasing my album (which at that point I hadn’t even recorded) Andy was very good at working out how the project would proceed, the number of physical discs to be made, downloads, TQ subscriber freebies, the split of costs and income (I don’t think the word ‘profit’ is really relevant, although we live in hope!), were all discussed extremely agreeably and equitably.

When I say ‘mostly’ a pleasure, what I’m referring to is the one event that leaves a small stain on the experience. I mailed a CD of the finished album to Ash for duplication, after which I didn’t hear anything for some time. It transpired that the disc seemed to have got lost in the post to the duplicator. The loss itself was quickly remedied by transferring the files, but as far as I can tell this probably added a few weeks to the production time and the release date of the CD, which could possibly have been avoided with better communication.*

As things turned out the quality of the disc itself, and the Bandcamp are as perfect as I’m likely to expect. I’m particularly pleased with the way the sleeve turned out. I always worry a bit about how a digital file will print, particularly when the image has vibrant colours, sometime it gets dulled in the transfer from Photoshop to card, and I really wanted this to stand out. I need not have worried about this, it looks great. Of course the music’s not too bad, but I only have myself to blame for that!

I would happily release with them again, if they’d have me!”

Steven Ball - ‘Abstract Vectoral Landscapes’ TQN-aut 7 released 11.11.19


*TQN-aut comment; With a heavy release schedule we lost track of this matter. This is clearly not good enough. We have now introduced a Release Tracker so every step of the process is managed in a timely manner, and if there’s a delay during any stage it can be followed up and rectified without protracted delay.


“The TQN-aut team are a group of highly dedicated, redoubtable and open-minded music lovers that take seemingly hair-raising release choice chances with impossible odds and deliver real and tangible results that will ultimately surprise and delight you. When all comes to naught you can rely on TQN-aut.”

Sheer Zed – ‘Junk by Patience Worth (Sheer Zed’s Phantom Spirit Remix)’ TQN-aut 5 released 06.12.19 



“The whole experience was a pleasure, as the label communicated clearly and simply what the plan was before starting. From past experience getting a plan and sticking to it has not always happened with some labels and it doesn’t always feel like they put much thought into things. So thanks for working together in making this happen. I’m happy to have this out on TQ N-aut”. 


Stuart Chalmers - ‘Heart of Instinct’ TQN-aut 14 

released 17.02.20


“I am very happy with how things went. There was plenty of lead time which I really appreciated and that allowed us to get it as right as possible. That includes preparation for marketing which I started on Twitter and LinkedIn at the end of January with posts every weekend until the CD was officially released (paralleled with posts on LinkedIn).


I really appreciated Andy’s marketing and I think we coordinated and supported each other’s Tweets. Andy was able to say stuff about my work that I’d never dare say, but by retweeting Andy I was able to get his opinions to my followers.


It was also good that I was able to personally prepare CDs in advance for promotion. Though The Wire mag didn’t review it, I was able to get a copy to them ahead of their print deadlines. I was also able to send advance copies to my contacts. As big as Twitter and Bandcamp are, there are so many other kinds of outlets that, in my opinion, really require advance copies to make one’s best impression.  I’ve done my own research over the years to build a list. I don’t know how the label would do that since they are producing CDs immediately before their release but it might be something to consider.


You guys might also consider establishing a marketing distribution list of your own... radio djs, magazines, blogs, podcasts, reviewing sites, etc., and make that available to your artists. They could determine which outlets might be a good shot for their work. Somehow my work got on “Culture as a Dare” radio programme due to Andy liaising with the presenter. It’s an example of what I’d hoped for... that you’d be looking for opportunities for me and acting to make it happen. I’ve always tried to reach outlets outside the US but it’s hard to know which ones. I had never heard of ‘A Ship Full of Bombs’ or ‘Radio Free Midwich’. If I contact them in the future, I know they will pay attention.


The production of CDs by the label seemed to go fine (despite the COVID – 19 pandemic) and I like the graphic identity of TQN-aut. It looks very hip and that’s the world I want my stuff to be in.


So, to sum it up this way: My hopes for having a label were to have an ally speaking up for me, supporting me, getting the word out for me, expanding my audience and the outlets that present my work. I feel TQN-aut made all of that happen. Though my interactions with David and Ash were fewer than with Andy, I always knew it was a team effort on TQN-aut’s side”.

R Weis - ‘Cassette Assembled Scores for Dance 1991-1993’ 

TQN-aut 20 released 27.03.20


“It’s very difficult to find anything negative to report! The label offers a no pressure approach that is really supportive creatively. Creating is what keeps me ticking over so the support and new audience I can reach is fantastic. 


Everyone is so relaxed, and it didn’t matter when there was a delay due to COVID - 19 pandemic as it was all communicated and we were patient. I’ve nearly had a few releases on vinyl / 7” put out by smallish labels in the past for it to always fall apart at the final hurdle, so working with a no pressure and relaxed bunch of folks is wonderful, just letting the music be the focal point which is what’s important. 


The DIY ethic of the label is what Sweet Benfica is all about, so it goes hand in hand in what we do. Putting this album out with TQN-aut has been the easiest thing ever, and that’s perfect for any artist”. 

Stefan James of Sweet Benfica - ‘Every Colour of the Dark’ TQN-aut 19 released 08.05.20

“From my perspective the only thing that didn't go smoothly was the shifting release date *. But I'm also well aware of the extenuating circumstances around it, so I wouldn't call it a criticism of the label in any way.


On the positive side, I appreciate the professionalism and transparency from your end, from the written agreement to the periodic updates regarding pre-orders and sales. I was pleasantly surprised to see a paypal deposit this morning too!


One improvement might be more clarity on who the points of contact are. At times 4 of you were in the loop, and it wasn't quite clear who was doing what, if there was a set division of responsibilities or whether it was more of a "whoever is available to pitch in will do it" type situation *. It is worth stressing that this arrangement didn't really cause any bumps that I could see, just more of an uncertainty. Overall, it was a positive experience and I'd definitely be open to cooperating again in the future”. 

Greg Nieuwsma - ‘Travel Log Radio’ TQN-aut 29 released 05.06.20


*TQN-aut comment; The shifting release date was beyond our control and was due to restrictions placed on production of the CDr’s and also having to re-schedule all releases as a result of Covid-19 pandemic.


The 4th member of the label team joined around the key planning stages of this release and at the same time a lot of data was lost due to a team members computer malfunction, and to retrieve the situation it was a case of all hands on deck. In future each artist will be informed who is responsible for what.

“Firstly I'm really chuffed that TQN-aut were up for releasing New Ends as I felt it was the right label for this project. From the point of submitting the music the communication has always been informative and transparent and I've always felt to be in the hands of a label that is passionate about the music it's releasing and in making sure that the artists are happy too. Releasing this album with you guys has been a pleasure again.


The only thing that would potentially be helpful is perhaps download codes to send to prospective reviewers*. Thanks again for all the help and support”.


Matt Atkins of Atkins & May – ‘New Ends’  TQN-aut 28 released 15.07.20


*TQN-aut comment; In future and as part of the Agreement between artist and label, the former will be offered DL Codes for promotional use.


“It was a pleasure working with TQN-aut on releasing my album. Communication was clear and upfront. I appreciated the attention and care that went into the whole process. I wouldn't hesitate to work together again in the future”.

Austin Potter aka Tapes & Tubes – ‘sugarbushey’ TQN-aut 41 released 31.07.20


“The experience so far from has been wonderful. I honestly only have good things to say, from the moment the label picked up the music and wanted to put it out, they have been very clear in all communication, fair, supportive and punctual (all that with a backdrop of COVID-19). But aside from all that, I think they are genuinely lovely people who it's been a pleasure to work with on this album and I would happily work with them again”. (Firas) 


“I have no complaints about the experience. You are very transparent and clear with your intentions, and the physical artwork etc turned out great. It was great to get support from you so for that I’m grateful. Thanks for taking an interest in the music. Also, it was a good gesture from you guys to support the ‘go fund me’ for Firas’ friend. More than happy to work with the label again the future”. (Jack)

Firas Khnaisser and Jack Weir – ‘We Don't Need Other Worlds, We Need Mirrors’ TQN-aut 43 released 31.07.20


“I got the album today, it looks and sounds beautiful. I loved releasing with TQN-aut, I felt like my creative decisions were respected, I was treated professionally and everything happened as we discussed, without deviations. I was really honoured and proud to be able to release with such a beautiful catalogue and was really impressed on how it was handled, communications were always on point and never took too long to answer. Overall it was a very positive experience and I would be thrilled to do it sometime again in the future!” 

Rafael de Toledo Pedroso – ‘Lakkos Chromatinos’TQN-aut 51 released 06.11.20


“I think it's fair to say the whole experience has been a pleasure - it's been a dream come true to have a physical release of some of our meanderings, and it's been amazing how engaged and enthusiastic yourselves have been, as well as the community of TQN-aut fans more generally - still  can't quite believe we shifted 36 of 45 copies during the pre-release phase, and I think that's testament to the trust and enthusiasm you've clearly worked hard to build in the label. Thanks so much for everything, and hope we get to work together again in some form!”


Tim Cowlishaw of RED TEAM – ‘RED TEAM’ TQN-aut 34 released 28.08.20


“There's nothing at all I can fault - very clear communication on your end and you guys are really accommodating of how long it's taken us to get the material sorted, and my slow email response time. It's been really good to get something out while we can't do any gigging and I think the TQ network is a really good way to get stuff out and to new ears in lieu of touring (and that mechanic might be a big part of getting to people for a decent amount of time with Covid still lingering) so the support on that front has been fantastic. The quality of the CDs is great and that bit of funds from the sales makes the whole Covid financial stress a bit easier too”.

James Watts of Mobius – ‘Water Flight’ TQN-aut 49 released 06.11.20


“It's been a real pleasure working with you - the communication has been great so I always had a sense of how things were progressing, what you needed from me and when etc. You've all been very friendly too which definitely helps. The feedback I got about the music itself was great - not just in the sense of assuring me it wasn't terrible but also showing that you were keen to get behind it.


It's difficult to find anything that didn't go well from my perspective. A couple of things that certainly aren't criticisms but maybe worth thinking about (and these wouldn't be particular to TQN-aut I should add):


Artwork - I was fine with doing this myself as it's something I've been doing for a while and have experience as a designer in my "day job". But it could be helpful to have guidance or templates for people to use (e.g. for Photoshop etc.). Having said that it doesn't look like you've had any issues in this regard, and this is probably more to do with the way my mind works.*


Promotion - this is definitely a more general issue for small labels I think. I'd like to share a (very) small number of physical copies of the release for review or to sell at gigs (remember them? Clearly less of an issue right now). I would like to hold on to my copy so not sure what the best way to promote the release is, outside of social media etc. I totally get it's important to keep costs down and squaring this particular circle is a challenging one - I don't really have any particular suggestions if I'm honest... Possibly giving artists the option to buy a few copies for promotion outside of the main run at a discounted rate (if that didn't impact the cost for punters?).**


One other thing I'd have liked - but it certainly isn't a big deal - is to be able to show my release on my own Bandcamp page (although people would still purchase it from you and it would also show on your page). The other label I work with (Bad Bat) does this and it's quite nice from an artist's point of view to be able to have all your releases together. I suspect this requires a different kind of Bandcamp account, probably paid so again it comes down to costs and priorities. The label's ethos of keeping costs down for punters is definitely something I can get behind.***


Overall as I said it's been great working with you and I'd certainly do it again if you were happy to. I'd like to do another Lines of Silence release at some point next year. I'm also happy to knock together a more structured testimonial if that would help.


I'm really chuffed with the CD - as I mentioned in the other email, it's great to have a physical release and it looks great”.

David Little aka Lines of Silence – ‘Terra / Aqua’ TQN-aut 48 released 20.11.20

* TQN-aut comment; We have decided against templates, preferring to give personal guidance. 

** TQN-aut comment; At the time of agreeing numbers the artist has an option to request as many copies as they wish to use in any way they choose. We have recently been joined by a new member of the team who’s main role will be promotion of releases.
