Fresh Records was an independent label from  1979 to 1982. Fresh's roots lay in Alex Howe's 'Wretched Records' stall, in Soho market. The stall developed to become first a mail-order business and later a record distributor; finally Howe started his own record label, Fresh.  Fresh soon merged with Alan Hauser's 'Parole Records', which provided a boost to its roster of artists.  It issued at least forty-six singles and a dozen LPs, which was good going for an independent in those days. The company used a FRESH-0 catalogue series for its singles, though those for which it was jointly responsible with Parole had dual FRESH-0 and PURL-0 numbers.  Prominent among Fresh's acts were the Cuddly Toys, Dark and UK Decay, all of whom recorded more than one single for the label.  Some singles were injection-moulded, others had white or orange-coloured paper labels with black lettering. Distributed By Pinnacle Records.
