Light In The Attic (Record label)
Light In The Attic is an American record label from Seattle, Washington, specialized in reissues, rarities and particular, founded by Matt Sullivan and Josh Wright in 2002. During a journey through Europe when he was a teenager Matt Sullivan discovered the fascination of old records and an exuberant interest for music. A car accident in Spain led him to a situation, in which he was confronted with nothing more than music. Some years later, Sullivan had just become unemployed and the dot-com industry experienced its first exuberance, the time was favorable to make a business out of passion. The idea of Light In the Attic was to build a label which placed as much emphasis on releasing quality reissues as it did developing new talents. Thus forgotten, overlooked, or even memorable recordings by inter alia The Free Design, Serge Gainsbourg, Lee Hazlewood, Monks, Betty Davis or Thin Lizzy were again made available to an audience. Also obscure recordings were included, like compilations to the largely unexplored genre “Country Funk” or reggae from Toronto as he was played between 1967 and 1974.
