Damnably is a small, independent record label, based in London, which organises performances and tours for musicians, podcasts music and video via its website,[1] and releases CDs and records.

Its constituency is associated with the cultural legacy of the late John Peel.The organisation initially acquired its name and impetus through promotion of a fundraising (World International) 'John Peel Day,' in 2006. This event has grown to the extent that the 2010 event involved 30 acts and 20 promoters.[2]

The musicians that Damnably has worked with include many international artists whose work was featured on Peel's radio programmes (e.g. Shonen knife, Codeine (band), Bitch Magnet, Chris Brokaw, Geoff Farina, Jason Molina, COME Shannon Wright, Julie Doiron, Dick Dale, David Grubbs, Scrawl, Uzeda, PW Long, Damo Suzuki ) but Damnably has also championed the work of relatively unknown British, European, North American, Chinese, Singaporian and Japanese musicians (e.g.Kath Bloom, Wussy, American Werewolf Academy, Thee More Shallows, Plaided, Bottomless Pit, Joel RL Phelps and the Downer Trio, Moon Mama, Versus, Stinking Lizaveta, Bellini, Construction and Destruction, OMO, smallgang, Crumbling Ghost, Former Utopia, Monster Island, Cosmic Shenngy, No Cars, We Vs Death, Spraydog, Bored Spies, Lonelady, MJ Hibbett and the Validators, Lazarus Clamp, Slowgun, Calvin Party, Benjamin Shaw and Jugo Plastika).
