Bron had been producing Uriah Heep for Vertigo Records, and he set up this new label for future Uriah Heep releases, along with Juicy Lucy, Richard Barnes and Colosseum. Others subsequent acts included Osibisa, Paladin, Manfred Mann's Earth Band (another Vertigo refugee), The Real Kids, Sally Oldfield, Motörhead, The Damned, Girlschool, Bronz and Hawkwind.
Original manufacturing and distribution was through Island Records, moving to EMI in 1977 and then onto Polydor Records in 1980. The label folded in financial difficulty in 1986, with the catalogue being sold to Ray Richards' Legacy Records. It subsequently passed to Castle Communications plc.
It was reported in early 2003 that Bron and Pete Brown had "renewed an association that went back over many years. They realised that they still had one outstanding interest in common - a love of music - particularly British music... So the Bronze label was launched again. It has since become defunct again."
