Description

Independent record label and distributor founded by Eric Goodis, Randy Boyd, and Phillip Hill (former staffers at Bonaparte Records, an independent record store in Montreal. Boyd was also formerly a partner in the short-lived punk label Psyche Industry Records).

Largely successful on the Canadian market up until 1995, the company has established offices in the US (Cargo Music), in the UK and in Germany. After 1995 the company operations begun to falter. The Canadian office ultimately filed for bankruptcy on December 19, 1997.

Due to some previous ownership changes, the bankrupcy of the parent company did not affect operation of the foreign offices. The two european companies operate primarily as distributors or distributor/labels - they cooperate, but are otherwise independent.
