Gwarn Music is an independent record label which was created in Manchester, England in 1991. It was founded by former 52nd Street guitarist Tony Henry to release his then new music project FR’ Mystery (lead vocalist Lorna Bailey) after talks to sign the act to WEA in London broke down. The label was initially independently distributed by local city record shop Manchester Underground, before New Order manager Rob Gretton invited Henry to bring the label under the wing of his then new imprint Rob’s Records in late 1994. This was the second time in ten years that Henry and Gretton had worked together. Gretton was 52nd Street’s A&R Manager at Factory Records.

Gwarn Music is now the sole owner of all 52nd Street's master copyrights released through Factory, A&M (US) and Profile Records (US) in the 1980s.
