Incus Records


Incus Records

Incus Records is an artist owned record label, founded by Derek Bailey, Tony Oxley, Evan Parker and Michael Walters, specialising in the dissemination of free-improvised music. The first release on the label was "The Topography of the Lungs", recorded by Bailey, Parker and Han Bennink in 1970. Walters and Oxley left the label shortly after its founding, after which it continued as a partnership between Bailey and Parker until a falling out between the two men in the mid-1980s. Bailey continued the label until his death in 2005; its first CD release was "Once", a selection of material from the 1987 Company Week. In later years the label also issued videos, and its final releases were often limited-edition CDRs intended largely for friends and faithful collectors.

Parker has more recently started up a label called Psi, on which he has reissued many of the original Incus LPs with bonus tracks.
