The Dick Brothers Record Company (1993 to 1998) was an independent record label formed by the singer Fish based in Haddington, East Lothian, Scotland. It predominantly released material by Fish, including 'official bootleg' live albums. Although they were plans to include other artists, only two full non-Fish albums ever appeared on the label: In Amber by Dream Disciples (1994) and Man Dancin by Tam White (1996). In addition, the first Dick Bros. ever released was a compilation showcasing artists that had recorded at the studio "Funny Farm Residential Recording Studios" that Fish was running at the time. Entitled The Funny Farm Project - Outpatients '93, it was intended as the start of a regular series, but only one was ever published. Apart from two cover versions and one original unreleased song by Fish, it included two tracks by Dream Disciples, two by Joyriders and one each by One Eternal, Avalon and Guaranteed Pure. The latter were notable due to their singer Ray Wilson who went on to become a member of Stiltskin and Genesis.

After Dick Bros. closed, Fish recorded with Roadrunner Records and Snapper Music, before launching a new label, Chocolate Frog Records Company.
