Postcard Postcard

"The sound of young Scotland", Postcard Records was founded in Glasgow in 1979 by Alan Horne. It primarily released records by Orange Juice and Josef K, but managed to recruit Aztec Camera and The Go Betweens before going out of business in 1981. Horne revived the label in 1992, but we are covering only the original influential releases.
