IF JOCKE SINKS
WE ALL GO DOWN
PUNK'S A RELIGION
NOT JUST A SOUND
As myself or anyone who does a D.I.Y. label can tell you, it is not easy or cheap. Due to the costs, this could be the end of the label and distro. D-Takt has supplied many night's soundtrack here and on top of everything, Jocke is one of the best people I know. I've had the pleasure of working with him both as a partner and releasing the Paranoid ep. He is in it for the right reasons. The label is done because he has a true passion for raw punk. I know anyone who is into raw punk at all has more than a few releases in their collection. It would be a terrible loss to lose such an amazing and important labels that has supplied some of the best noise for almost the past decade. - Gaki Nezumi - Konton Crusher.
Below are Jocke's own words about what happened.
" Records and merch, tour/band gifts and parts of my private collection is totally drenched, ruined and must be discarded at a value of around: 41.200€ / $54.900 / 35.200£ / 5.650.000YEN and my insurance covers only: 5100€ / $6800 / 4000£ / 700.000YEN because our stock is located in a storage room. I dont know/think I will survive this personal and economic crisis. And as it seems, this might be the end of D-takt & Råpunk Records. When a damage such as this strikes against a d.i.y punk label its hard to get back in the ring again. I could really need all your help and support right now. Feel free to get in touch if you think that you can help us out in any way. More information will follow as soon as i know more about this total mess. I really hate to beg and ask for favours and I would not do it if I absolutely not needed. I need some sleep, been working day and night for two days straight in a row now. I will try my best to keep the punk spirit up, but at the same time I must admit that it feels pretty fucking hopeless right now. The label, distro and everything around it will be closed indefinitely until I got a better overview of the whole situation. Thanks for all your support! "
