Radiant Future Records is a British independent record label distributed by Ace Records, and home to one-time Sparks bassist Martin Gordon, Jet, Radio Stars, John's Children, the Blue Meanies and related artists. The label began operations in 2002 with the release of a live recording from Gordon's alumni Jet, Johns Children and Radio Stars, and releases one or two albums per year with a focus upon 'clever twisted pop which rocks', to quote Rolling Stone magazine.[1]

Recent releases include a live Radio Stars album from the 1970s and Gordon's six solo releases in the Mammal Trilogy series. The final installment 'Include Me Out' was released in 2013; an album of Gilbert and Sullivan material 'Gilbert Gordon & Sullivan' was released in 2016 on April Fool's Day. A new album 'Thanks For All the Fish' was released in March 2018.
