Bronze

Profile:

UK label started in 1971 by Gerry Bron, who was formerly with Vertigo.
Label Code: LC 2313 / LC 02313.
The label was home for such artists as Uriah Heep, Colosseum, The Damned, Girlschool, Hawkwind, Manfred Mann's Earth Band, Motörhead, Sally Oldfield, Osibisa and Phenomena. Initially distribution was through Island Records, and from 1977 through EMI, changing again to Polydor in 1980. By 1980 Bronze had established itself as one of the major independent labels and was dedicated to British music, releasing mostly rock while keeping open to other styles. Other artists on the label were Paddy Milner, The Blues Band, John Altman, Rockford, GP Hall and Monty Norman. By the mid '80s, when marketing by the new media video clips became key to the commercial success, Bronze sales decreased and the catalogue was finally sold in 1986 to Castle Music aka Castle Communications PLC.
The label was reported to be revived in 2003, however no new releases have appeared, with the exception of a few international reissues.
