Cleopatra Records was founded in 1992 by long-time music fan, Brian Perera.

The label was officially launched with three releases, Pressurehed (a space rock band from the SF bay area) followed by the release of Motörhead's "On Parole", which had long been out of print. The third release, was actually a series of reissues by electronic pioneers Kraftwerk.

If you were to create a list of everything this label does correctly, the list would definitely not include: art/design, typography, proofreading, or taking care with audio fidelity of source material. Honestly, I'm not sure what's left to be good at. Rakin' in the dollars? I guess.

Never realized how bad this label was until I found out that they're releasing Brokencyde's next album. Let that sink in for a moment: A Brokencyde album. In 2018. (as a side note, they seem to be pretty much directly ripping off $uicideboy$ now, which is hilarious because Brokencyde makes $uicideboy$ look like Run the Jewels or something). Anyways, I just knew them as an odd label that made a very random assortment of the many, many industrial albums I bought in questionable used condition as a teenager, so I was fine with their existence. I can imagine this being rather helpful in the pre-internet days for someone into some of this music. So props to that. But looking now, boy is this a messy discography. I kind of had a feeling about this when the releases I saw back in the day seemed to have absolutely no overarching aesthetic or purpose (other than being vaguely "spooky gawth music"), and the more you look into that that theme becomes clear as ice. Like it's vastly less coherent than Metropolis, even. I kind of remember the Tribute To... albums and how trash they were but looking at them now they are really a laugh, and the misspelled artists/titles and wrong track lists are the cherry on top.

Man. Say whatever you want to say about some of this labels practices but it doesn't change the fact that they're pretty much one of the only labels around that are keeping the true spirit of music ALIVE. They're keeping it real with newer stuff like 3TEETH and whatnot. I think they're actually one of only a handful of 3 "Underground" labels still around, the rest being Metropolis, Alfa Matrix, and MAYBE Wax Trax II but that's a big ass MAYBE. At a time when originality in music is at a record low these guys invite you to go to the past with the best in each genre. That's what the past is for? If music sucks now, there's always the old to re-live and these guys have a shit ton of vintage stuff to choose from.

These guys have EVERYTHING. Country, Punk, Folk, Industrial, Metal, etc. They've been there and done that and have such a meaty catalog of whatever you want. Out of my 400+ CD's I'd say a good 250 are from this label alone. I can over look some minor annoyances or the odd shady practice (we're all guilty of it anyways, even if it's just a bit). For a label that's fairly young, being only 25 or 26 years old they've established themselves with quality, in my opinion. I recommend this label to anybody interested in good music period.

I love this label. I really do. Brian, keep on doing what you're doing.

It's not a label run by passionate people, it's run by Capitalist businessmen, just money is important for them, not the artist or the music ...

Super unethical sleazebag art theft in such profusion.
I feel like I have a cocaine hangover and I just woke up on a leather couch and am squinting painfully at the too-bright shards of sunlight filtering in regular shafts through the venetian blinds over the sliding glass door, my clothes rank with the stench of menthol cigarrettes as I try to remember whose beach condo I am at; this is what Cleopatra Records brings to mind.
I once bought a CD "by" this label in Amoeba Record's Hollywood store, OSTENSIBLY a goth compilation of some sort, only to discover that the contents of the disc were all recorded by one person aimlessly noodling on some synths without even stopping for individual track entries, ALL THE BANDS LISTED WERE FAKE (didn't exist).
I tried to find this fake comp on this discography (it had a black and white picture of Dracula, maybe Bela Lugosi) but I soon realized it's probably not even accounted for.
The word "ostensible" will be useful in attempting to understand the difference between what Cleopatra claims and what she offers. This coffin-crawler's cocaine-financing operation exists to victimize music fans willing to take a chance and it does this with cynical reliability.
They can't be trusted to care about the accuracy of the printed information on their releases;
Cleopatra can be trusted to act like a criminal parasite because music is for suckers who can spell.

In a time just before the internet became popular, this record label did a lot for the goth scene. Before it was easy to find music you heard in clubs (especially since the DJs wouldn't tell you who the tracks were by, fearing you'd take their job) and related music you hadn't heard yet, Cleopatra was the most available source of goth track discoveries in my part of the u.s.a.

Personally I appreciate the effort of any label willing to bring out its (or others) best out into the world but the case with Cleopatra is they were always reaching worrying levels of underground's absurdity - be it 'Tributes', re-releases with horrific cover designs or as many point out - mispellings...

What fascinated me at first with Cleopatra was their enthusiastic (or desperate?) search for identity. They released far too many itchy-kitchy gothic-preferred records alongside which even those of more respectfully re-issued anthology (Kraftwerk, Clock DVA, V/A 'The Whip' etc) seem like piracy.

There is nothing bad about their catalogue for people who are willing to explore the dark side of life (or the funny side of pretending it) but I'll agree that Cleopatra seems more like a hybrid desperado than a label with properly built identity - the irony has it, in the end, this constant desperate feel became their identity and eventual reason for it being ridiculed...

Let's not forget that this is the label everyone loves to hate, if only because of their almost religious tendency to keep releasing "A Tribute To..." compilations. Yes, they sure do give us a lot of suspect material but for them to keep going, not to mention the sheer catalogue size and volume, means that they must be doing something right.

Be warned that label sometime uses a vinyl sources when they release CDs. Listen closely for surface noce, and Kellog's "snap, crackle, and pop". On a positive note, at least they make an effort to release long out of print vinyl on CD. I owned Psychic TV's "Force the Hand of Chance" CD (what's up with changing the original cover artwork?) on Cleopatra until I got a hold of the official 1997 Some Bizzare release.
