Press[edit]

Snakes & Ladders featured in Artrocker as part of its DIY labels article (30 August 2006) and included tracks by The Total Drop and The Roaring Twenties on the accompanying covermount CD.

Tracks from the label's sampler compilation S&LCD001 have also been played on the magazine's weekly radio programme on London's Resonance FM and on BBC Radio 1's Rob Da Bank show. Radio 1's Huw Stephens also made S&L his 'DIY-label-of-the-week' on his 'Best of Unsigned' programme, 27 September 2006.

"...with great certainty one would expect to hear a lot more from these bands and this label in the coming years." [1]

"...an excellent snapshot of the flourishing underground art-rock scene..." [2]

"They're doing it all on their own and as such deserve to be supported in their endeavours." [3]

"...an ace little record label." [4]

"Snakes and Ladders is the kind of label we all need. Desperately. Eccentric and wilful, they put out material that does not necessarily want to fit in with any current trend." [5]
