ALBION
RECORDS

 Independent label: Punk / New Wave label, from the late '70s and early '80s, Albion was one of the more professional and longer-lasting of the companies which dealt with those types of music.  Ian Grant, Dai Davies and Derek Savage started it in 1976 as a management company and booking agency, and it soon had The Stranglers and 999 on its books; its first venture into the record business as such seems to have been with the release of a single by 999, 'I'm Alive', on the Labritain label, in September 1977.  The Albion label as such first appeared in March 1978, and used almost the same design as Labritain; it was a somewhat old-fashioned-looking silver-and-black affair, such as might have graced a pre-war 78rpm record. The first batch of singles was handled by United Artists / EMI and was numbered in an ION-0 series.   In 1979 Albion broke with UA and flirted with Arista, adopting a new catalogue numbering series (DEL-0) and a new injection-moulded label design while it did so; during this time distribution was by Phonodisc.  The relationship doesn't seem to have lasted for very long, as the first months of 1980 saw Albion on its own again, with a third label design and a new distributor in Spartan.  The catalogue prefix returned to ION, but the numbers were now in a 1000 series. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
