An independent label,  Bang was started in 1965, in New York City, by Bert Burns, with help from three of his friends from Atlantic Records - Ahmet and Neshui Ertegun and Gerry Wexler.  The label's name was made up out of the initials of the first names of the four of them. Irene Burns took over the running of the company when her husband died, in 1967. It moved to Atlanta, Georgia, in 1973, and was sold to CBS nine years later.  As far as Britain is concerned, Bang made its debut late, in 1976. The label made its mark with disco hits by Brick ('Dazz'; BANG-004; 1977) and Boiling Point ('Let's Get Funktified'; BANG-013; 1978).  Manufacture was by Phonogram, which explains the injection-moulded labels.
