Stiff wasn’t Britain’s first independent record company, but it was undoubtedly the label that exerted an over-rding influence on the dozens of DIY set-ups, such as Factory and Mute, that emerged in its wake during the punk and new wave musical revolution of the late seventies. This collection, complete with fully illustrated 28-page booklet, provides a comprehensive overview of all things Stiff - "The world’s most flexible record label" - from 1976 to date.

Reviews:

A smartly annotated history of the influential London independent label. Stiff put pub rock in the mainstream with Costello and Dury, started the punk onslaught with The Damned and became home for asorted mavericks (Wreckless Eric, Lene Lovich) and local street pop phenomena (Madness and The Pogues). Misfits, anywhere but here.
