One of those cases where a label probably
didn't have an actual name and I've had to use the artist's name in
order to give it an identity. Poet and multi-instrumentalist John
Huscroft issued a self-financed six-track instrumental EP called 'In The Front
Line / No Man's Land' in 1975. In addition to the titles shown on the
scan the EP offered 'The Purge', and 'Nazi Blimps'; most of the tracks were recorded at Budget Studios, London. The EP had a catalogue number of JH EP-1 and
was pressed by Orlake. 1980 saw the appearance
of another EP, this time by Andy Bruns and John Huscroft with
saxophonist Evan Parker. It offered 'Blue Reflections' and eight other tracks, and was numbered
JH EP-3; its labels were white with black printing. Presumably there was a JH EP-2, but if there was Googling has failed to come up with it.
