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

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