4AD

Profile:
The influential 4AD label was started in 1980 by music enthusiasts Ivo Watts-Russell and Peter Kent with financial help from Beggars Banquet, whose record store chain the pair worked for.

Originally calling their label Axis, they released an initial series of four 7" singles before finding out that the name Axis was already being used by another label. Having to quickly come up with a new name, the partners noticed the following bit of typography that their graphic designer had put on a flyer announcing the Axis releases:

1980 FORWARD
1980 FWD
1984 AD
4AD

Kent left 4AD after a year and started another Beggars-affilated label, Situation Two.

Under Ivo Watts-Russell's guidance, drawing influence from other UK indie labels such as Beggars Banquet, Postcard Records and Factory, 4AD quickly established a unique identity thanks to both the cover designs of Vaughan Oliver/v23 and the label's unique numbering system.

In 1992, 4AD entered a highly publicized Stateside distribution deal with Warner Bros. Records, opening offices in New York headed up by Robin Hurley. Watts-Russell moved to Los Angeles in the mid 90s resulting in the label being largely been run from California for the rest of that decade. Ivo sold 4AD in the late 90s, although his influence remained apparent for years after. In November 1999 it was announced that, following the departure of Hurley as label chief, Beggars Group's chairman Martin Mills had taken the opportunity to relocate its HQ to London and install a new label head, former Beggars head of press Chris Sharp. Sharp was joined by former Mantra Recordings A&R man Ed Horrox.

Sharp was ousted from his role as MD by the Beggars Group management in April 2008. Simon Halliday, ex-Warp Records US, took over as MD. His first move was to "retire" fellow Beggars Group labels Too Pure and Beggars Banquet - key artists on the defunct imprints were transferred onto the new expanded 4AD.

Decoding the unique numbering system…
The alphabetic part indicates the format:

4AD - Mail-order only releases
AXIS - The Axis 7" singles
AD - 7" single
BAD - 12"/CD single and EP (generally up to four songs, although some have more)
CAD - LP
DAD - Double LP
EAD - MP3 download
FAD - Poster edition
GAD - Originally used for a series of re-issues that came out in 1998 under the promotional title "The Perfect Antidote", it has since been used for subsequent reissues, mid-priced reissues & remastered editions
HAD - Used only once, for the UK reissue of Matt Johnson/The The's "Burning Blue Soul"
JAD - Used for three mini-album releases
MAD - Mini-album (generally more than four songs)
PAD - Postcard Set
TAD - Temporary releases (i.e. those that have only one pressing)
VAD - Video
WAD - Postcard Set
XAD - Poster Set or Calendar

The letters CD appended indicate a compact disc, and the letter C appears in between the prefix and the catalog number on a cassette (ie: CAD C 809 for the cassette version of CAD 809). An appended D indicates a double or special limited release, and an R indicates a remix single/EP.

For promo releases and a few other oddities, the alphabetic part is quite often an abbreviation of the band's name, and the numbers are sequential across promos by that band.

As for the numeric portion:
* In 1980, releases were simply numbered sequentially. The AXIS numbers took up 1 through 4 (with AXIS3 being reissued as AD3), and the 4AD numbering took over with 5.
* From 1981 through 1989, the numbers became three digits, with the first digit representing the year and the other two being a sequential number for the year. For example, the first release in 1981 is numbered "101", the twelfth release in 1984 is "412", etc.
* From 1990 to 1999, the numbers became four digits, with the first digit again representing the year. So the first release in 1990 was "0001", the sixth in 1997 was "7006", etc.
* In 2000, the first two digits of the number became "2K", with the other two digits being the usual sequential number.
* From 2001 on, the first digit has been "2", the second has represented the year, and the last two have been sequential. So the first release in 2002 was "2201", the 11th in 2003 was "2311", etc.
* From 2010 on, the first digit has been "3", the second has represented the year, and the least two have been sequential. So it's "3101" for the first release of 2011, and so on.

I wrote this about the 4AD 40th anniversary sampler (4AD0139CDJ), but I am putting it here as well as it says something about the difference in 4AD music quality and aspirations pre-millennium, compared to 4AD output from 2000 onwards -----> Regarding labels, who cares right? Of course we should appreciate the bands individually. However, 4AD in the Eighties was a very strong label which you could rely on and like pretty much everything. Now?

This sampler is OK, but 40th anniversary? I certainly expected a lot better from 4AD. This selection is even a bit samey, something you could never say about 4AD pre-millennium. And it heavily leans toward 2009-2012 for some reason, with about half the tracks from these three years (a joke when you are looking at forty years of the 4AD powerhouse). You'd expect those selections to SHINE - come on you only have to pick one single track from each group - in the Eighties you'd be stuck for choice, too many great tracks.

Also the most recent 4AD catalogue is under-represented with one track each for 2016 and 2018 and two tracks from 2017. In other words there are four tracks out of a nineteen track album for the years 2013-2019. You'd expect some favouritism with the newer bands, but not with this antholgy - again too much 2011/2012. Why such shocking bias? And to create a finished product which is so lack lustre? So it made me think about the quality of 4AD's musical output from decade to decade - the beauty of the music itself and its influence on other bands and strictly on how 4AD chose this selection on this 40th anniversary sampler to reflect 4AD's four decades of their music.

It would have been good to witness a bit more creativity with the Eighties selection. 3 x tracks for the whole of the 4AD Eighties - giggle, this is an astounding period of musical creativity for 4AD. Why not have Liz Fraser's Love Insane with Dif Juz? One of the most beautiful of 4AD tracks seemingly lost to time. 4AD chose something a bit more typical to represent Liz's voice: safe I guess.

I remember when the 4AD samplers (anthologies) used to be an adventure, an exciting choice of music with a huge range of music, much of it by pioneering groups which would continue to define whole new genres. The 4AD Eighties groups shone like diamonds with strong punk (Bauhaus, Birthday Party, Xmal Deutschland), groovy pop (Colourbox, Frazier Chorus, Xymox), things not easily put into genres, Modern English, Cocteau Twins, Wolfgang Press, Dead Can Dance, Pale Saints. And some one-off gems like Richenel's L'Esclave . . . and Mortal Coil to dismantle and reassemble brilliantly.

Slowly the latter part of the Eighties brought in America - Pixies, Throwing Muses and all the offshoots. Of course they were great. I loved the 1st eponymous Throwing Muses album and the first Pixies EP, and continued to listen to the groups' work; but did their next albums really progress that much? Also, they seemed to herald a heavier rock influence, a more mainstream influence which would dominate and swipe away the extaordinary breadth of the magical 4AD sound.

New groups or solo artists still came along on 4AD. Vinnie Miller, wonderful, exciting and new - not on this anthology. Lo-Fang (again, not on this collection). Scott Walker, of course, not a 4AD discovery, but why not on this collection? Whatever (sigh), who knows what 4AD are up to . . . of course music has to change, we can't stay stuck in the Eighties, but if you notice, that is exactly what I am saying: the last two decades of music on 4AD DOES NOT represent change. The pre-millennium 4AD music is still more daring than the new 4AD.

And that, if anything, is what is interesting about this 40 year 4AD anthology: the anthology reveals in a rather opaque manner what has happened to 4AD in its 40-lifespan; but more bizarrely, its slow progress with some alternative American music. 4AD still retains some interest, but as a label it's lost a lot of its original BANG and seems to want to repress the better part of its history. If you are seeking something a bit different in the current 4AD catalogue, highlights are perhaps Deerhunter, Ariel PInk and Grimes (Canadian) with a bit more variety, but I do wonder about their final results.

I have obviously thought this for a while, til now refraining from writing what I have just laid down. This 4AD anthology seems like something uncaringly swept from a dustpan, rather than the celebration it should have been. I know . . . these are all creative musicians, I shouldn't be so mean with my criticism. Don't take it from this 'rant' that I dislike these bands, there is much to enjoy in these groups. But like the unwanted teacher's comment: "could do better", and a shame it had to happen to 4AD. The selection, unfortunately reflects a lack of overall vision, more of a downward progress, and perhaps with a better selection 4AD could have disguised the slope more.

I do get bored, I get bored, In the flat field. I dare you . . . The pangs of dark delight.

4AD had a strong impact upon me. Suffice it to say, that significal part (well, best part) of my CD collection are the label's releases. Indeed, 4AD is "the perfect antidote", as one of its fan-sites is called.
