Finders Keepers Records (Record label)
Finders Keepers Records is a London-based record label, specializing in re-issues and rarities. It is run by Andy Votel, Dominic Thomas and Doug Shipton. Their first release in 2005 called people’s attention already. L’Enfant Assassin Des Mouches by Claude Vannier from 1972 was a widely known and praised record but still rare until they re-released it. Since then Finders Keepers Records kept looking for musical jewels beyond genres and subjects. Welsh Folk, French jazz, British psychedelic are on their roster as well as Czech film music, Pakistani pop and Persian funk. Besides they keep re-publishing books like the novel Ritual by David Pinner from 1973.
