Independent label:  F-Beat Records was one of the record labels set up by Jake Riviera in late 1979/early 1980, at the same time as he started Demon Records. The label's first release, I Can't Stand Up For Falling Down by Elvis Costello & the Attractions, reached number 4 in the UK charts, the highest singles chart position the label attained. Costello notched up another fifteen hits for F-Beat before leaving for Warner Bros. Records. F-Beat's roster also included Nick Lowe, Carlene Carter, The Blasters, Blanket of Secrecy and Clive Langer and the Boxes. The original F-Beat label was closed down in 1986, but it was briefly reactivated in the early 1990s with a new roster including Blab Happy, Nicola Hitchcock, Phil Burdett and The Gutter Brothers. Manufactured By Demon Records And Distributed By WEA Records Ltd and RCA Records.
