Independent label from Salford. Formed By Dave Bentley. Bent started life in 1978 and survived for long enough to issue two seven-inch singles and three twelve-inchers. Numbering was in a BENT-0 series, with a prefix of SMALL or BIG, depending on the size of the record.   The label kicked off with, 'Speed Freak', by V2 (SMALLBENT-1; 3/78); in 7" terms it ended with the Notsensibles', 'Death To Disco' (SMALLBENT-5; 3/79), which didn't make quite the impression of their subsequent 1979 single, 'I'm In Love With Margaret Thatcher' (Redball Records, RR-002).  The discography below contains the label's entire output, Distributed By Bent Records.
