Motion Records

Motion Records was active as a label from 1996 to 2007. A small independent UK music label run by enthusiasts, activities have now been suspended because of the pressure of other commitments and significant changes in the nature of the music industry.

Currently there are no plans for any further releases of any kind.

Motion Records' speciality was vintage reggae & dub, where the approach was one of quality rather than quantity. Our Legendary Skatalites In Dub album remains an eternal classic.

Our most recent reggae back catalogue is still available, but most of our releases are now out of licence, and only obtainable second hand, where the prices they have fetched on occasions are testament to their quality.

Punk-era legend Vic Godard and his band Subway Sect released several albums with Motion, including the Subway Sect Singles Anthology.
Although not widely known to the public, Vic was hugely influential within the music industry - Edwyn Collins, The Libertines and even the late Kurt Cobain being among his devotees.

Vic is still actively writing and recording, but is now working with other record labels. The Vic Godard section of this site will remain here, archived, for information.
