Corpus Christi Records is an independent record label started by some of the members of Crass and their recording engineer and business partner John Loder, to release records by artists who did not perhaps fit in with some of the stricter ideals of the Crass Records label.

Several of the artists on the label had debuted with 7-inch single/EP releases on Crass Records, but Corpus Christi was used for future releases.[1] According to Crass' Penny Rimbaud, the label was set up to allow artists who had started on the Crass label to set up their own record deal with Loder of Southern Studios under Crass' guidance.[1] Some of the artists on the label, however, such as UK Decay, Icons of Filth, and the American band Crucifix were signed by Loder without any prior involvement with Crass.[1]

The label was active between 1982 and 1987, and its releases were regularly placed highly in the UK Indie Chart, with Conflict's It's Time to See Who's Who LP topping the indie album chart in 1983. The label reappeared in the late 2000s to put out a compilation of 2 early Conflict 7" EPs on a 12".
