Our goal is to make a smooth transition from the closing of The Exclusive Company to the opening of Lilliput Records. We chose our name in reference to the fantasy world island, Lilliput, in Gulliver's Travels and see it working in tandem with the idea of the record store being a place you can escape to. Lilliput is also very meaningful to us as a way to pay homage to the post-punk band Kleenex/ Liliput, and the genre as a whole.
Our vision for the future of Lilliput Records is to be a much more community-based space. There are so many amazing local artists, businesses and people in Milwaukee, and we cannot wait to share an abundance of memories with you all moving forward. We believe deeply in the Milwaukee community, vinyl community and music lovers.
Every day, we see how important music is to people, and we know how much it means to us. I’ve personally been with The Exclusive Company for the last five years and have gone from part-time worker to assistant manager. I’ve made lifelong friends and have discovered endless amounts of artists by digging through our bins and through your purchases and recommendations. Most importantly, I have found this amazingly wonderful community who I get to interact with day in and day out. To share my love of music with you all has been an absolute dream, and I truly cannot see that coming to an end.
