Backs logo

Backs Records was a record shop, label and distributor.

The record shop was situated in Swan Lane, and provided a small but perfectly formed source of vinyl pleasure for hordes of the more alternative teens and twenties in the 1980s. the shop closed it's doors in the early 1990s, and Backs concentrated on its distribution commitments. Paul who worked in the shop at the time went on to create it's replacement shop in the form of Soundclash in St Benedict's Street, which is still very much there.

Originally part of The Cartel, an Independent consortium of record labels and distributors; Backs still operates as a distributor with RTM & Pinnacle, although the economic climate in 2008 caused Pinnacle Entertainment to go into administration in December of that year.

Backs also always offered support to local labels, and would often assist in distribution of records and CDs, most of Noisebox Records releases were distributed in this way by a consortium that always included Backs.
