Bam-Caruso Records

Bam-Caruso Records

Profile:
Bam-Caruso, the pioneering record label, started in 1983 by Phil Smee, growing from the dying embers of St Albans "Waldo's Records", with a mission to record the best new sounds emerging from the UK and America's so called "paisley underground", and merge them with rare and unknown psyche and garage/pop gems from the '60s, to be licensed in.
Its colourful reputation rests on the "Rubble" series, a continuing set of various artists compilations which together create a definitive overview of Freakbeat and pop-psych styles.

RPM's Bam-Caruso Records (see RPM Records (2)), the 60's psych reissue imprint of Cherry Red, was set up with the co-operation of BC founder Phil Smee to reissue the old BC catalogue and more.

The "Rubble" compilation series has been reissued by Past & Present Records.
