Independent label: A sister label to Ted Carroll and Trevor Churchill's 'Ace Records', and a successor to Chiswick. After Carroll and Churchill licensed their Chiswick label to EMI, in mid 1978, they started two more labels: this one, Big Beat, for contemporary material, and Ace, for reissues.  Both shared two numerical series which had previously been used by Chiswick: NS-00 for singles and SW-0 for EPs.  The last Chiswick NS was NS-41, 'Little Queenie' by Johnny Moped, which came out in June 1978. Numbers NS-42 to NS-48 weren't used, and Ace and Big Beat used NS-49 onwards. Big Beat released only a few singles in the 1970s, and did most of its business in the '80s; Distribution in the '70s was by Pinnacle. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
