Medium Cool was a United Kingdom independent record label that existed between 1986 and 1989. Specializing in jangly guitar-pop, it released records by bands such as The Raw Herbs, The Siddeleys, The Rain, The Waltones, The Popguns, and The Corn Dollies.


The label released its first record, 1986's "I Don't Need You" by The Enormous Room. Over the next 3 years, the label released 21 records. The collapse of the label's distributor Red Rhino, effectively brought things to an end.

Label owner Andy Wake is working with Cherry Red records, who are compiling a 2-CD label retrospective.[1]
