Independent label: Fried Egg Records was a record label set up in 1979 by Andy Leighton, administrator of the Bristol based Crystal Theatre. Fried Egg issued at least twelve singles during the period 1979-81, using an EGG-000 numerical series.  At least two other companies used a picture of a fried egg on their label: Spiegelei (from Germany) in 1972, and Concord in 1973.  The Wings single, 'Old Siam Sir', on Parlophone (R-6026; 1979) did likewise.  What the attraction was, goodness only knows. Fried Egg Records Former Address: 85 Ashley Road Montpelier Bristol, 6. Distributed By Revolver and Rough Trade Records. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
