LFDJ has already done posts for labels: SUB ROSA, LES DISQUES DE CREPUSCULE, CRAMMED DISC (see the Made to Measure series).

Early ROUGH TRADE, CHERRY RED and related are known enough after the interest of thousands bloggers to dig into the obscurity of the indie age.

CRAMPS was interesting up to 80's. The best stuff of this label lies on vinyl so collectable and rare that many rarity-advertisers (i don't say, the market works well) have already thrown a digital idol of it into the blogosphere.
It doesn't worth portraiting label CRAMPS if you don't have the vinyls themselves and... we are not collectors.

Some of the rest labels it's already in our plans for future posts.

Anyway, we would like to thank you once more for your attention to this blog.
