Fast Product Records label discography

Fast Product was an Edinburgh-based independant label started in late 1977 by Bob Last. Whilst it was easy at the time to find second-division punk bands keen to make records, the label distinguished itself by discovering previously unknown acts who were making much more interesting music, usually with a left-field political slant. Primary amongst these influential and diverse talents were The Human League and The Gang Of Four, both of whom released their first records on the label. Last also gave Californian scene-leaders the Dead Kennedys their first UK release, and included Joy Division on one of his compilations, Earcom 2. In later years he established the "Pop Aural" label, which included the Fire Engines on its roster.
