KOALA
RECORDS

 Independent label: An obscure label from the late '70s.  Apparently the Koala label had at least two 'lives', and possibly three.  During the first, which ended in 1977, it appears to have issued around twenty singles in a KOA R-00 S series, if the catalogue number are anything to go by; during the second, in 1979, it added at least another two singles, both by Carol Deene, this time using a KOA-100 numbering.  The first batch was manufactured by Peerless Records and distributed by Lugton / H. R. Taylor; the second was marketed by Rediffusion and distributed by Pinnacle. Koala reappeared in 1980, with a different label design, and released at least one Punk single, The Elevators', 'Your I's Are Too Close Together' (KOA-401).  Pressing was by Ellie Jay records. and the new Koala design was practically identical to the 1980 Ellie Jay label. Distributed By Pinnacle Records. Thanks to Robert Lyons for the info.
