Cocteau Records

Profile:
Cocteau Records was an independent label started by Bill Nelson and his former manager Mark Rye in 1980.
Named after Jean Cocteau, the famous French artist, philosopher, filmmaker, etc etc..., the label released numerous recordings during the 1980's, most of which were Bill Nelson solo releases.

It was also the launching pad for A Flock Of Seagulls, whose first single Bill produced and released on his label.
The strength of that record led to their signing by Jive Records and video infamousy for their hit song I Ran (So Far Away), which was played to death on MTV in America.
Other artists who recorded for Cocteau were Yukihiro Takahashi, Man Jumping, To Heaven A Jet, Last Man In Europe, Fiat Lux, and a number of Nelson vehicles such as Jobson-Nelson, Revox Cadets, Scala (2), and Bill Nelson's Orchestra Arcana.
