    Zounds Biography

    Punk band from Reading, England. They formed in 1977 and broke up in late 1982, later reuniting in 2007.
    ---

    Zounds were a UK anarchist band formed in 1977 from loose jamming sessions around the Reading area. Originally they were part of the cassette culture movement, releasing material on the Fuck Off Records tape label, and were also involved in the squatting and free festival scene.

    The band met up with fellow anarchists Crass when, legend has it, their van broke down on the road. They made their way to nearby Dial House, where Crass were based, who helped them with repairs. The two bands became friends, and although musically very divergent, they shared many common political views. Zounds shortly afterwards released their first EP, "Can't Cheat Karma", on the Crass Records label.

    The band released their first album The Curse of Zounds on Rough Trade Records in 1981. The cover art, by anarchist artist Clifford Harper, featured a painting of fire fighters apparently trying to put out a blaze at the Houses of Parliament in Westminster. However, the picture continued onto the back cover, which showed that in fact they are spraying the fire with petrol, thus feeding it!

    The band split up in late 1982. Bass player and vocalist Steve Lake and guitarist Laurence Wood continued to work together for a while as The World Service, whilst drummer Josef Porta (AKA Joseph Porter) went on the join The Mob and later formed Blyth Power. Lake continues to work as a solo artist, and Zounds occasionally reform for benefit gigs with a line-up augmented by Protag (formerly of Instant Automatons, Alternative TV and Blyth Power) and drummer Stick (previously of DIRT, Doom and Extreme Noise Terror). A remixed version of the bands song "This Land" was released in 2001 as a CD single benefit for the McLibel support campaign.

    The name of the band is derived from the old English curse-word "zounds", which is a contraction of "Gods wounds", referring to Christ's crucifixion wounds.

    Label - Rough Trade

    Rough Trade was started by Geoff Travis in 1976 as a London record-shop and began releasing as an independent label in 1978. They quickly grew as a label and an independent distributor during the 1980s, collaborating with labels such as 4AD, Factory Records and One Little Indian to name a few.
    iNote/i: please use Rough Trade (3) for 'Exclusive Retailer' credits on editions pressed for Rough Trade Shops and roughtrade.com.

    Label Code: LC 5661 / LC 05661

    • Catalog numbering used by the first incarnation of the label:

    Singles/EPs were numbered sequentially (001–247) with following prefixes:
    RT###: 7" singles, early 12" singles and some 10" singles
    RTT###: later 12" singles and some 10" singles
    RTT###CD: CD singles
    RTM###: 12" EPs/mini-albums
    There were also five early 7" singles numbered RTSO1 through RTSO5. These are all by the group Spizz Oil and related projects.

    Albums:
    ROUGH###: numbered sequentially (1–159), with extensions such as CD, MC, etc. for different formats
    RUFCD####: used only for four CD releases in 1989, numbered sequentially (6001-6004)
    COPY###: used for some early cassette releases issued under the label name Rough Tapes, numbered sequentially (001–???)

    After overstretching on the US market the label/distribution group ran into financial difficulty around 1990. The US branch was shut down and the German branch ended up in the Zomba Music Group where the name was eventually abandoned. In the UK One Little Indian provided financing and took over the label with original owner Geoff Travis initially in charge, but he soon left to start the Trade 2 label with Island Records. A result of this arrangement One Little Indian has retained ownership of some key catalogue releases, such as the early A.R. Kane albums. Dave Boyd was the label manager

    • Catalog numbering used by the second incarnation of the label:

    R###x: numbered sequentially (starting around 250) with x indicating format (0 = 12", 1 = LP, 2 = CD, 3 = CD Single, 4 = Cassette, 5 = mini-album, 6 = CD mini-album, 7 = 7" single, 8 = double LP)
    45REV##: singles club 7" series, numbered sequentially (01-??)

    Finally, Geoff Travis regained control of the Rough Trade label name around 1999–2000 and re-launched the label alongside Tugboat Records.

    • Catalog numbering being used by the third incarnation of the label:

    RTRADES###: 7" singles, 12" singles & vinyl EPs
    RTRADESCD###X: CD singles & CDEPs - 'X' is appended when two versions of the single are released
    RTRADESDVD###: DVD singles
    RTRADELP###: vinyl LP albums
    RTRADECD###: CD albums

    On some releases, the E in RTRADE is missing, leaving RTRAD as the prefix.

    In July 2001, Sanctuary Records joined forces with Rough Trade, including its imprint Tugboat. The relationship with Sanctuary was intended to support Rough Trade's growth plans by enabling the label to utilise the well-established Sanctuary infrastructure with a particular emphasis on the international sector.

    In July 2007, a struggling Sanctuary announced, as part of its preamble to being bought by Universal, the sale of its 49% interest in the loss-making Rough Trade for a cash sum of £800,000 to the Beggars Group. Rough Trade continues to operate from its Golborne Road offices in London, with Beggars assuming central office functions.
    The Rough Trade specialist retail chain did not figure in the deal.
