A Complete List Of Uk Labels?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

A friend of mine, who's one of the oldest skinheads here in Mexico, just self-published a book about original skinhead culture & jamaican music called AGGRO, Skins+Reggae=TNT.

It features two lists: ska/rocksteady/early reggae labels in Jamaica, and UK labels. The JA list is alot bigger, and I really don't think it's complete... I decided to copy the UK list, so everyone here could fill the gaps...

Here it goes:

Banana's missing, you're right.

I know Tapir's, It's really helpfull, but they list goes all the way through the 90s, and the purpose was to list skinhead-ish labels ie 60s til 73...

Cheers
