Waterfront Records


Waterfront Records was based in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. The label was started in 1982 by Steven Stavrakis while he was working at Phantom Records (3). Waterfront's first release was the J.F.K. and The Cuban Crisis EP 'Careless Talk Costs Lives...' (January 1983).

In 1985 Stavrakis and Phantom co-worker Frank Cotterell opened the Waterfront shop in York Street Sydney. Later joined by Chris Dunn (another ex-Phantom colleague) the store move to Sydney's Haymarket and eventually back to York street where the dream ended in March 2000.

Subsequently, the name Waterfront was appropriated by MGM Distribution who released a number of records utilising the imprint. This was done without the knowledge of the 'real Waterfront' label owner (Stavrakis, or his partner Dunn).
