Damnably is a small, independent record label & publisher[1] based in London, which also organises live events and tours for its roster of acts.

Created by George Gargan of Former Utopia and later Janice Li joined from a film background.

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]

Damnably is a member of A.I.M and the MCPS.
