INJUN
RECORDS

Independent label: Injun Records was based in Hassocks, Surrey.  Injun was owned and run by Rockabilly enthusiasts Piers Chalmers and Trevor Engleton.  Its speciality was reissues of obscure American Rockabilly singles, and it managed more than a dozen releases during the four years (1970-73) of its existence.  Injun's first single, Joe Poovey's, 'Ten Long Fingers', came out in 1970 without a catalogue number: the 'B.M.1.' on the label would appear to be a misprint of 'BMI', the publisher.  The label was of plain design, and was dark red with black printing.  Eventually this single was re-pressed; later pressing have a catalogue number of '100'.  A slight revamp followed: the remaining singles were numbered in the 100s, and at some point after 101 the company name was given the dignity of being enclosed in a box.  The colour of the label varied. Later singles, from 109, came with black-and-silver-halved labels and a new logo, though at least one was coloured black-on-blue instead of silver-on-black.  Injun singles can't have been pressed in great quantities.
