Independent label: Firebrand Records was one of a couple of labels owned by Dema Directions, of Bristol, the other being Great Western. Both labels shared a DM-000 numerical series, later DM-1000; The Fred Bloggs Band's 'Seaside' EP, featuring 'Mr. Sun' and three other tracks, dates from 1978 and is one of only three 7" found so far on Firebrand. Modestly the sides were listed as 'C' and 'D' rather than 'A' and 'B'.  The other records were a single by Superfly, 'Disco Crazy' (DM-1021) which came out the following year, and a version of 'The Bird Dance' by the Ritchie Brookes Sound (DM-1026), which appeared in 1981. The Fred Bloggs Band, which was popular locally and was built around Steve Brown. It is possible that Firebrand was Dema's label for records which it actually issued, with Great Western being more of a DIY concern. Distributed By Firebrand Records.
