History[edit]

Clay's first signing was local Stoke punk band Discharge who released the Realities of War single in April 1980. Stone distributed the single out of the boot of his car but it still made it into the top 10 of the indie chart in the music magazine Sounds. The label went on to sign artists like Play Dead, The Lurkers, Demon and G.B.H. Members of Clay went on to form Jungle Records in 1984.
