Originally starting as a punk label, Secret Records was created in 1980 with the first release being The Exploited's Punks Not Dead which reached number 20 in the UK album charts. As the 1990s came around the catalogue of Secret Records became less rooted in punk and become broader in genre choice like pop/rock group Lovely Previn's Shatterproof whose singer/songwriter/violinist Alicia Previn is the daughter of Sir André Previn. After 2000 the label began concentrating more on music DVD releases as well as live CD releases and continues to do so to this day.
