D-I-Y Colour Discs
The indie label boom following punk in the late 70s led to an explosion of D-I-Y imprints, often based in bedrooms, issuing limited edition cassettes (cheaper than records!), sold at gigs and by mail-order.
One of the most prolific such operations was Color Discs, an alias for Gary Ramon, which was behind numerous lo-fi synth pop, post-punk, indie and electronica creations by acts such as Mystery Plane, Modern Art, Lives Of Angels, weR7, The Ordinary and The Good Missionaries.
While the original cassettes sell for a fortune, many of these homespun projects have been recycled across six volumes of the CD series Cold Waves Of Color.
Cherry Red now represent the rights to the Color Discs catalogue.
