World Serpent

World Serpent

Profile:
World Serpent Distribution was formed in the late 80s and was co-owned by David Gibson, Alan Trench and Alison Webster. It began operation by distributing the artist-run industrial & 'apocalyptic folk' labels Durtro (Current 93), New European Recordings (Death In June), United Dairies (Nurse With Wound) and Tursa (Sol Invictus).

Other similar labels later joined the fold, such as Threshold House/Eskaton (Coil), Conspiracy International (Chris & Cosey) and Biter Of Thorpe (Danielle Dax/Lemon Kittens).

World Serpent also functioned as a label, although they released very few records on their own. The vast majority of the releases they distributed were on other labels & imprints.

World Serpent went bankrupt in August, 2004.

World Serpent isn't a label, it works as a distributor for many smaller labels like David Tibets "Dutro", Steven Stapletons "United Dairies" or Piski Disk. The styles tend between noisy industrial and accoustic neofolk. But besides that World Serpent did release some items itself. Mainly compilations just as the Terra Serpent or the MM compilation.

I'm not quite sure, which of the releases currently listed here actualy belong to another label, but I guess some of them do.
