"...it's always a real compliment for someone to take one of your songs and do something different with it.." said Marc Bolan, talking about Siouxsie & The Banshee's version of Twentieth Century Boy which he saw the band performing at London's Music Machine in 1977. Sadly Marc was not around to see its release as the B-side to The Staircase (Mystery) two years later

Sunset was dumped dark inside my bedroom
Barracuda blue, won't you give
my baby to me

My Little Baby from Futuristic Dragon album


I LOVE MUSIC. I would very much like to play an instrument but I cannot (oh and believe me I've tried to learn). I had one band of my own that lasted three days - I wrote three songs and we did one concert for a college TV station (if you're unlucky I'll include a track on this site somewhere when you're not looking!). The band was called The Rectal Gush - need I say more?

At that time I was managing Those Helicopters while studying at college and after college while working in my first record shop, I began managing Venus In Furs; working with musicians satisfied my need to be involved in the process of creating music

In 1986 Barracuda Blue Records was established as an outlet for Artists and bands to pay tribute to Marc Bolan in his own medium, to expose his work to a wider audience and to support and promote new writers and musicians who have been inspired by Marc Bolan

I've created these pages, not for egotistical reasons, but because I have all these files full of memories and stories just sitting on shelves, and for me each of these releases has a life and all the artists, technicians and 'the cats' deserve to be recognised and remembered. These releases are a small part of the ongoing Marc Bolan Story, they are a part of his history and in some way continue to play a part in his future


All of the Barracuda Blue Records releases are pictured below, each featuring its own page of memories, images and audio - GARDENIA Midnight Love EP, NIKKI SUDDEN / TIMES / THE NECESSITARIANS lunacy is legend ep, JOHAN ASHERTON / THE TIGER SHARKS / CAPTAIN SENSIBLE  savage amusement ep, V/A An Exalted Companion...
