CUBE / FLY
RECORDS

 Cube was the successor to the Fly label, which was started by David Platz in 1970. After eighteen singles on Fly (BUG-1 to BUG-18) the nineteenth, BUG-19, appeared on Cube; though the label's design, featuring a fly inside a cube, made the connection obvious. The company handled a mixture of material, with reissues from the likes of Procol Harum, Joe Cocker and Tyrannosaurus Rex coming out alongside new recordings from Joan Armatrading, Harvey Andrews, the JSD Band, etc. Cube was never as successful in the singles chart as Fly had been, though Jimmy Helms's 'Gonna Make You An Offer You Can't Refuse' got into the Top 10 in 1973 and both Gordon Giltrap and Quantum Jump had hits later in the decade on Cube's sister-label Electric. By the 1980s Fly/Cube was primarily associated with TV/Film/Theatre music from the Bucks Music company. It was revived in the mid-90s, and again in 2002. The label's first manufacturer / distributor was EMI), who had handled Fly, but Polydor and Phonogram took over those tasks in early 1973. Polydor's habit of dinking some of its singles at source played merry hell with the label design, a problem which ended when injection-moulded labels were introduced and the design was altered.  By October that year Cube was back with EMI, and the paper labels had returned with a slightly different layout (5). A move to Decca (for manufacture) and Selecta (for distribution) in early 1975 saw more minor changes in the label layout, as well as the appearance of wider dinking perforations than had previously been seen. Decca and Selecta handled Cube until late 1977 when Pye took over both of their functions. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
