Independent label: Zarjazz was a sub-label of Virgin Records. The name comes from Zarjaz, a fictitious slang word meaning "excellent" in the comic 2000 AD. The label was formed in 1984 by British ska band Madness. Its first release was Feargal Sharkey's hit single "Listen to Your Father", on which Madness (minus Suggs) performed as Sharkey's backing group. The record label dissolved in 1986. The label was run from an office on Caledonian Road in North London, which also houses Liquidator Studios. Madness still owns the studio, but currently rents the premises out. Distributed By Virgin Records.
