Calypso Now

Calypso Now

Profile:
Swiss independent cassette label by Hotcha. Released around 200 cassette productions from 1983 to 1988, most of them licensed from other labels. Also, these tapes were copied over the years as needed, so the actual cassette used depended on what was available on the market at the time, and the covers do not always carry mention of the Calypso Now label and practically never an order number - that was due to the punk idea ("Be there or be square").
After 1989 the label became home to Hotcha's band Pull My Daisy until 1992, where all activities stopped.
Today the label is active again.
