Concrete Productions

Profile:
Concrete productions was a UK based underground label, specialising mainly in Industrial music, which was set up by Andrew Beer of 400 Blows in 1981 to release the 7" 'Ghoulish Practices'. This was followed by the brilliant and seminal "Beat the Devil". Following their signing to Illuminated Records in 1982/83, C.P. was put to one side, although it acted as the production arm of 400 Blows. Soon friend, Andrew Burton began working with Andrew Beer, Tony Thorpe and Robert Taylor in 1983, helping out with production and recording live events, becoming increasingly more involved, he eventually took over ownership of the label so that Andrew Beer could devote himself to building 'Warrior Records' helped by Tony Thorpe.

In 1987 Andrew Beer conceived; 'Funky Alternatives', in conjunction with Morgan Khan, and instead of being released on the 'Streetsounds' label was in fact the first CPROD album release. Then soon after, fellow friend/sound technician, Andrew Burton became more involved, and took over ownership of the label so that Andrew could devote himself to building 'Warrior Records', helped by Tony Thorpe who also went on to form 'Language'. The last CPROD release was Funky Alternatives 8 in 1995/6. There have been a succession of releases purporting to be retrospective Funky Alternatives compilations but these were never legally sanctioned.

Concrete Productions, were basically responsible for giving exposure, and promotion to many top underground artists whom primarily specialized in Electro/Synth-pop/Industrial styles.
