The label was founded by music journalist Johnny Waller and Clive Solomon in 1985 and released early records from Pulp, Teenage Fanclub (on subsidiary label Paperhouse), Spacemen 3 (formerly on Glass Records), Blue Aeroplanes, Lives of Angels and others. In the early 1990s, the label was home to Neutral Milk Hotel, The Lemonheads, Built to Spill, Urge Overkill and others.

After slowing down, the label was taken over in the late 1990s by current label head James Nicholls, and has gone on to release albums by Guided By Voices, Giant Sand, Pere Ubu, Scott & Charlene's Wedding, Jane Weaver, Josephine Foster and The Lemonheads [1]
