Concurrently V2 was also a venue in a squatted building and a concert organizer.
The first release was by Merzbow in 1984, one of the first Merzbow titles to appear outside of Japan. The releases that followed in the early years were mainly recordings of concerts that were organised by V2, such as Laibach or Test Dept. All these early releases featured just V2 as a label name.
Later (at least in 1992, on the limited edition cassette with cat# V215/C12) the names V2 Archive or V2·Archief appears. Still operating from 's-Hertogenbosch they started to also release CD's and LP's, that were recorded in studios. In more recent years V2_Archief has followed the developments in experimental, electronic music closely and have released music by such artists as Bernhard Günter, RLW, Francisco López, Kozo Inada, Roel Meelkop...
note: the addition 'uitgave' printed next to V2 on early releases is Dutch for edition / release / publication.
