Chart Records was the bands Own Diy Record Label, But With A Pennine Records Catolouge Number PSS 162. Pennine was the label of the Pennine recording studio, which was located in Oldham. The company seems to have specialised in custom recordings: they have that typical combination of high catalogue numbers, obscurity and variety.  The label seems to have been in operation from 1977 to 1982.  Its singles and EPs were numbered in a PSS-100 (later a PS-7100) series; its LPs shared the same series without the '7'.  PSS-131 suggests that the numbers may have started there.  Apart from the fact that it made the first record by Joy Division, 'An Ideal For Living' (PSS-139; 1978), which came out on the Enigma label, Pennine's main claim to fame was that it was responsible for 'Where Are All The Nice Girls' by New Wave band Any Trouble (PSS-7165).  The band was later signed by Stiff Records, who reissued the single. Other singles of possible New Wave interest, such as So Feww's, 'I'm Not Automatic' (PSS-7179; 1981) were surrounded in the catalogue by albums by Folk and Cabaret artists, such as Hindle Wakes and Tony Vince. Incidentally, I hadn't thought that publishers' stamps were still being used as late as 1980. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
