Bandcamp has it's benefits for the ease of creation, sharing, and saving, but monopolies,
especially in creative subcultures, rarely end well. For the purpose of supporting the trve
underground or whatever, here is my collection of non-Bandcamp based netlabels. May the old
net never die. (Ironically, a lot of these labels are dead, but many are active and prolific.
Tread with caution, probably don't browse at work.)
■■ = Active
■■ = Dormant / possibly dead
■■ = Confirmed dead

Note: The line drawn here is arbitrary but hopefully reasonable - Tsundere Violence has a bandcamp but is primarily a mediafire
label so it's here, and The Dark Thursday has an archive.org mirror but mainly runs on bandcamp so it isn't. If you know any for
me to add, please comment below.
