Defunct and Current Aussie Record Labels

Defunct and Current Aussie Record Labels

Wednesday, February 24, 2016


Founded by Fred Bestall and Lance Reynolds in 1978. Located in Sydney. Bestall and Reynolds formed the label around The Silver Studs as part of Wizard Records. It became independent at some point afterwards, opening up offices in the US and UK.
The label appears to have closed after getting into a dispute with RCA Records, its US distributor, in 1989.
