  Rough Trade Records, Tugboat Records and Rough Trade Artist Management
was founded by Geoff Travis and born from the succesful independent London record store in 1978 with the release of Metal Urbain's "Paris Maquis" single and fast established itself as one of the great independent labels with a reputation of eclectic taste and artist-first philosophy.
After ups and downs and a temporary shift in ownership for most of the late 90's, Rough Trade Records is again in Travis' hands and is as mercurial as ever.

 Snapshot: Rough Trade Records, 1978 | | Guardian Unlimited Arts
Rough Trade, which has since become the key champion of alternative music as a shop, record label and distribution network, was born.
Rough Trade began just as punk was nurturing a climate that encouraged bands to release their own records, quickly and cheaply, and Travis saw it as his job to provide a chance for these bedroom creations to get out in the world, so he set up a label, too.
A revived Rough Trade has won plaudits with acts such as the Strokes, Arcade Fire, the Libertines and Antony and the Johnsons in recent years.

 BBC - collective - rough trade label profile
Before that, Rough Trade was seen as a kind of cult post-punk label, but when Geoff signed The Smiths it became a lot more mainstream and The Smiths became one of the biggest independent bands ever.
And that carried on into the mid-80s when Geoff started Rough Trade Distribution which, to cut a long story short, was quite badly managed.
There are other bands like The Strokes that typify Rough Trade, even though they’re very now, and you can go back to bands like The Fall because they just went in one direction and never really faltered, and that’s how we operate as a label.

Throughout the late '70s and '80s, Rough Trade Records signed a succession of extraordinary artists that now comprise a one-stop compendium of post-punk groundbreakers: Cabaret Voltaire, The Raincoats, The Fall, The Smiths and many more.

Gibb, in the midst of his first blitz of press interviews at the Rough Trade office, matches Travis's fervour as he recalls their first telephone conversation.

One of the most important cornerstones in the UK music industry reaches the ripe old age of 25 this month, and to celebrate, Rough Trade records are throwing parties and releasing some of the year’s most highly anticipated records all through October.

Since then it has released literally thousands of records by hundreds of artists, from ‘The Queen is Dead’ by The Smiths to ‘Kicker Conspiracy’ by The Fall to this month’s new Strokes record, ‘Room On Fire’ and long may it continue to do so.

Theirs is a rough pastoral sound, shot through with some wry humor that can be tongue-in-cheek.
The next three tracks see BSP revisit their early singles, albeit in the case of "Remember Me" it is in a re-recorded version.
In fact, "Remember Me" benefits from its new recording, as the band seems to have raised the tempo and speed with Yan's voice carrying more desperation and the rhythm section (Wood on drums and Hamilton on bass) propelling the song nicely along during its chorus.

 Libertines Appear At Rough Trade Party
The rumours turned out to be true, the Rough Trade Records 25th Birthday Party last night (October 15) played host to the first full band London performance by the newly reformed Libertines at the Neighbourhood club in Ladbroke Grove.
As previously reported there had been numerous rumours that the surprise guests at the show were to be The Libertines (although a Smiths reunion was also touted) and indeed the group appeared onstage at 12pm having reportedly decided to play “10 minutes before the show".
The performance included some impromptu dancing on stage from The Mouldy Peaches’ Adam Green and during the set both frontmen Carl Barat and Pete Doherty removed their jackets leaving them both bare-chested and exposing the legends "I love Peter" and "I love Carl" scrawled in pen on their respective backs.
