MONARCH
RECORDS

Independent label: Monarch Records appeared in 1979 but saw most of its action in the early '80s.  Under its manager Stan Blackman it issued more than fifty singles, mostly in a MON-0 numerical series.  MON-49 came out in October 1983; at some point shortly afterwards the numbering seems to have changed to the MON-000s for some reason.  With the likes of J. J. Barrie, Max Bygraves and the Krankies in its books, the company seems to have had distinct Easy/Pop leanings; though it did put out a Punk single, 'Doin' The Lambeth Walk', by The Introze (MON-037; 1982).  Distribution was by Pye / PRT. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
