GROUCHO MARXIST RECORD CO-OPERATIVE
RECORDS

Independent label: Groucho Marxist Record Co-operative Records was from Paisley Scotland run by printer Tommy Kayes, a member of a Clydeside Anarchist group.  The Groucho Marxist Record Co-operative issued two Various Artist EPs, an EP by XS Discharge and a single by Defiant Pose during the period 1979-81; another EP was planned but it never appeared.  Numbering was in a COMMUNIQUE-0 series.  Titles such as Defiant Pose's 'Fight' and Urban Enemies 'Who Do You Hate', both from the 'Ha! Ha! Polis' EP (COMMUNIQUE-2; 2/80), suggest hardcore Punk, but the music on that particular record has been described by one source as 'poppish but garagey'. Groucho Marxist Record Co-Operative Records Former Address: 500 Parkhouse Road Glasgow, Scotland, G53 7NA. Distributed By Rough Trade Records. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
