A small independent label, Stardust was run by
Martin Murray, who had achieved fame as a founder-member of The
Honeycombs. Stardust issued at least two singles in 1979, using
different numerical series. Satyr's 'Love Slide Boogie' b/w 'Problem
In The City', was numbered STAR-001, while 'I Saw Her With Another Guy', by Mod
band The Nightriders, from Ely, had a catalogue number of
STR-1001. There were at least two other releases on Stardust in 1980;
these kept the 1000 numbering but had a STAR prefix (2).
Distribution was by Pinnacle. 'Thanks to Robert Bowes for the scans,
