During 2006 Unlabel released a series of 52 CD albums - one every week of the year, all by people who weren't connected with the label (i.e. none of their regular artists), to include all genres that they cover from the usual guitar based music - acoustic and alt. country to post-rock / math rock, hardcore and beyond, piano, electronica / idm through to ambient, glitch, microsound, gabber, industrial / noise, soundscapes and anything else that took their fancy, each in a strictly limited edition of just 100 numbered copies.
The idea was to release work by unknown artists who may not otherwise be recognised at all alongside a handful of carefully selected guests, including a few names which may be familiar due to their other releases elsewhere.
All releases were packaged in distinctive matching artwork with the musical artists' own image on the front and two images from Unlabel on the back - including one of a landscape photographed every week over the 12 months of 2006. These CDs were all sold at a bargain price to simply cover manufacturing costs and some of the time involved in running a massive project like this.
It is still possible to order the complete set of 52 albums from the Unlabel website along with a selection of individual releases from the series.
They are strongly connected with the Tunbridge Wells scene and the local music venue the Tunbridge Wells Forum. This stretches to putting on shows on a regular basis, with artists from all over the world.
