About

Something In Construction started in 2005.

I started as a record label but diversified into artist and label management, music publishing, consultancy and live promotion.

SIC has published books and I even wrote a book called DARE, published in 2016 about Bowie’s influence over Synthpop and me.

Since DARE was published, I’ve been writing screenplays and my 1st efforts have been shortlisted in various competitions and even won the odd prize.

2018 see the production of a short film I wrote called The Interventionist. I’ve also entered two stories into the major screenwriting competitions.

I have a bunch more ideas for movies.

Drop us a line: misterlaurie@gmail.com

SIC deals in pop music.  Sometimes that means folk or disco, artrock, punk rock or symphonic pop, hip hop, rock’n’roll or electronica.  We are proud of our history and our catalogue,  cos we’ve only ever released bands that we love, which is probably why we have only just made it past 100 releases and why we are still here. Quality over quantity.

Currently we are working with PIANO WIRE, MARTIN CARR and TIGER LION

Previously we have released music by  SHAUN RYDER, NIGHT ENGINE, LONEY DEAR, ANR, THE CONCRETES, THE SILENT LEAGUE, LEISURE SOCIETY, EMMY THE GREAT,  THE GAY BLADES and more. We started with AKIRA THE DON.

We basically like pop music, a tune you can whistle.  And cleverness, ideas and style. And strings, quite often.  If there is a common thread running through the catalogue; it’s… left-of-centre pop music.  There is probably no higher artistic calling.  We love both deep and shallow music, smart and dumb.

And if we can draw in shades of The Coen Brothers, Magritte, Bridget Riley, Coppola, HG Wells, Turner, Gilliam, IK Brunel, PK Dick, Roger Penrose, Dante, Hanna Barbera, astronomy, gastronomy; then, all the better

Anyway, we are very pleased to meet you.  If you are reading this, may we say how nice your hair is looking and that you have lost weight and we never for a moment thought FOR A MINUTE that you did that thing that we heard you did.

Furthermore, if you like one of our bands, and are as smart as we think you are, then mebbe you’ll like more.

Just sayin’
