Artefact

Badge for TJ Davidson's record label. I think he had V2 and distractions at one time or another. No doubt people will let me know more. I love the slogan!

He did indeed have The Distractions. They recorded their debut EP 'You're Not Going Out Dressed Like That' (TJM2, 1978) at TJ Davidson's on Little Peter Street. According to this old Record Mirror interview (distractionsnothi...) only 4,000 copies were pressed which meant the band got no royalties.

Imagine my surprise I was listening to the radio and they were talking about the Stones manager Andrew Loog-Oldham. He set up Immediate Records, who had The Small Faces, Bluesbreakers, Amen Corner to name a few, and the labels slogan was.....'A New Record Company of Tomorrow Today'!

TJ Davidson had many good sides and helped many young Manchester bands. His brightest move was to employ the up and coming illustrator Alan Adler to produce all the record sleeves and posters for the label including the cult cover of the compilation album Identity Parade and the iconic and controversial image of the decapitated HMV dog for the Slaughter and the Dogs EP simply titled 'Slaughter and the Dogs'.
