Time & Matter (T&M) are an independent record label and book publisher (originally) working with U.K. Subs members old and new. The T&M HQ / Distribution is based in Warwickshire, England. 

Time & Matter Recordings was set up as a ‘not for profit company’ in February 2010, putting out previously un-released or no longer available U.K. Subs material with all the proceeds going to charity. 

These charitable causes are personally chosen by the legendary Subs front man Charlie Harper, and have included individuals in need, those directly affected by the Japanese tsunami and earthquake in March 2011 and at present the RNLI, to whom we have been making regular donations since 2013. We have raised over £20,000 for these various charities so far… 

In May 2012 we launched a subsidiary label called Time & Matter Records to deal with commercial ventures, and then in 2017, another subsidiary label was launched to release non-U.K. Subs related material. That new label is called Thyme & Mattar Records. 

April 2020 saw another venture launched; TOME & METRE BOOKS and TOME & METRE PUBLISHING, with U.K. Subs bassist Alvin Gibbs’ first volume of memoirs, previously exclusively serialised on our website being our first book published, going on to be named Vive Le Rock magazine's BOOK OF THE YEAR 2020.

Our second book publication is the much anticipated exploration of the formative years of goth legends Bauhaus by their archivist Andrew Brooksbank.

All three of our record labels and our book publishing venture share the same T&M catalogue number prefix... 

Time & Matter Recordings and its subsidiaries are run under a partnership by the www.uksubstimeandmatter.net website editors, who have been music obsessed and U.K. Subs fanatics since they were school friends, aged 12, in 1979.
