WAU/Mr. Modo Records was a record label set up by Alex Paterson and Youth.[1] "WAU" stands for "What About Us?"[2] (although in a 2016 interview Glover stated that it stood for "weird and unusual")[1] and "Mr. Modo" is Adam Morris, Paterson's manager.[2] They released several early albums by The Orb,[2] that were mainly distributed by record labels such as Big Life.[2] WAU/Mr. Modo Records featured releases from many different ambient artists including Sun Electric, Blue Pearl, and Keiichi Suzuki of the Japanese band Moonriders.[2]

Their sublabel, Inter-Modo, also released records from Juno Reactor and The Orb's collaborative side-project FFWD.
