Torso

Torso

Profile:
Label Code: LC 7052 / LC 07052 .

Dutch independent label that basically had two incarnations:

Torso was set up in the late 1970's by Dick Polak, Hansje Joustra and Peter Dispa, releasing records by Mecano (2), The Rousers, Mick Ness and Mekanik Kommando amongst others, sometimes in collaboration with Plexus or licensed to Ariola Benelux. After 1982 the label was inactive for a couple of years, after which it was sold to Boudisque and a second life for the label began.

From around 1984 Boudisque started releasing records on Torso which were either licensed from independents like Beggars Banquet, Ralph Records and others, or their own signings. From late 1980's the name Torso Dance was used for dance oriented stuff.

After Boudisque went bankrupt in 1994 the sublabels Go Bang! Records and ESP Records were bought by Roadrunner Records and Torso went into oblivion.
