7060 Hollywood Boulevard #221, Los Angeles, United States
Candix Records was an independent American record label known primarily for releasing The Beach Boys' first single, "Surfin'". Candix A&R man Joe Saraceno and Buckeye Distributors' Russ Regan are attributed with renaming The Pendletones as The Beach Boys, in an attempt to make them more marketable.
Incorporated on 26th August 1960, with an office at 7060 Hollywood Boulevard #221 in Los Angeles, the name Candix derives from its founders Robert Dix (December 4th 1915-November 6th 2006), his twin brother Richard (died April 7th 1999) and William Canaday Silva (d. 1978).
The record label reportedly went bankrupt in May 1962 (although as it was still releasing records in August, this seems unlikely), just five months after The Beach Boys released "Surfin". The label's 'cash flow' problems became a source of some bitterness in the Beach Boys' camp, the group having only received a total of $990 in royalties from a record that had made the top 5 in Los Angeles and San Bernardino County, become a top hitpick in San Francisco, and made the national charts for some weeks.
