PEEVED
RECORDS

 Independent label: An SRT custom pressing SRT cat number S83CUS1904. The company originally started as Goldfish Records, named after a particularly good radio programme the founders (Steve Hartwell and Peter Skelley) broadcast on Imperial College Radio. A company called Goldfish Productions took exception so it became Peeved. It released one single, by The Primary, which more or less sold out the 500 that had been pressed. Thereafter it stuck with tape releases as they did not require anything like as much capital investment and could be produced 'just in time' to match the actual demand. The company was based in Cambridge hence all the local bands appearing on either their own releases or on compilations. Steve was born in Southampton which is why there are a lot of South Coast connections as well. The label was heavily influenced by the Southampton based indie cassette review magazine Stick It In Your Ear (SIIYE). In addition to covering the national and international home taping phenomemon they also did a lot to support local talent. The idea was to do the same in Cambridge, not just through the label but also through the local music magazine Scene And Heard. The Primary band members were Bass Peter Nater Drums Mark Taylor Guitar, Vocals Gideon Hatch Keyboards Pete Barker Vocals Louise Tierney. Distributed By Peeved Records.
