Noh Poetry Records is a San Francisco, California-based independent record label founded by musician Don Falcone and graphic artist Karen Anderson in May 1987. The label is dedicated to electronic, experimental, space rock and psychedelic music.

Their first release was "Kamarupa," by Spaceship Eyes (Falcone's electronic solo project). Other Falcone bands and projects released on Noh Poetry have included Grindlestone, Quiet Celebration, Thessalonians, Fireclan (with former members of Melting Euphoria), and Falcone & Palmer.

The label's first and only compilation to date featured various artists. Titled "Where Stalks the Sandman," it included tracks by Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson, Praxis (band) (a Bill Laswell musical project), and electronic music composer Kim Cascone (Thessalonians). The CD also featured "An Isolated Craft," the only track that Falcone ever released by Don Falcone (as opposed to being by a band or project).

In 2008, Noh Poetry released The Entropy Tango & Gloriana Demo Sessions, by Michael Moorcock & The Deep Fix. These were sessions for planned albums based on two of Moorcock's novels: "Gloriana, or The Unfulfill'd Queen" and The Entropy Tango.

In March 2012, Noh Poetry released the debut CD by Astralfish, an instrumental project with Bridget Wishart (formerly of Hawkwind) and Don Falcone.
