Another very interesting french label. They had the fortitude to take on plenty of American acts as well as a few domestic ones. Several of the Americans were unique, unlicenced signings and those records are rare as hell today. Frankly any of their output can be a complete bitch to find. All in all a great label. They licensed Wendy O'Williams - what more proof do you need?

(Not to be confused with the (German?) label active during the early 90's, responsible for some obscure but more melodic acts like THYRON, SARDONYX etc.)
