Independent label: Spartan Records was Based in Wembley, Spartan started out in 1978 as a record distributor.  It was owned by Pran Gohil, Tom McDonnell and David Thomas, and that it was intended to offer a nationwide service to independents.  It soon started putting out singles on its own label, using a SPAR-0 numerical series; there seems to have been just the one issue in the '70s, the Robert Broberg single 'I Wanna Be A Machine' b/w 'I Love Things' (SPAR-1) which came out in June 1979.  In the '80s the company had another stab at the market; this time the prefix was changed to SP, apparently starting at SP-5, which was issued in June 1983.  Numbers reached SP-39 in 1985.  Spartan was still issuing records in 1989.  It used a variety of different labels during the period of its existence.  The Robert Broberg single was licensed from Hkftatk of Sweden and was pressed in clear vinyl. Distributed By Spartan Records.
