PAW
RECORDS

 Independent label: Paw Records and Tramp Records was founded by North Hertfordshire group Stonefield Tramp - gravedigger Terry Friend and Rob Van Spyke - in 1974, after they'd failed to interest any major record company in their recordings.  The group issued one LP, 'Dreaming Again', on their own label before splitting up; a second, 'Come The Day' by Terry Friend & Friends, followed in 1977 and was numbered THF-001.  Presumably as a result of the Punk boom Tramp then released a single by the Bleach Boys, 'Chloroform' (THF-002), which came out in 1978.   As time went by, Friend continued to release the occasional cassette of solo material; whether any of it came out under the Tramp imprint is unclear. The Bees was a  powerpop band from this Letchworth / Hitchen area The Band were Pete Phillips (voc) Rick Camp (guitars voc) Clive Tonkin (bass) John Wilson (drums voc).
