Rough Trade All Up In This Mutha...

From Filter Magazine:

"UK indie record label Rough Trade Records has hooked-up with World's Fair Label Group to license and market select titles for North American release. The deal will once again give Rough Trade direct access to the U.S. market which it has been without due to the financial troubles of part owner Sanctuary Records.

"Initial Rough Trade/World's Fair offerings include the latest albums from Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker, Brakes, British Sea Power, The Veils and 1990s. A spokesperson for World's Fair says release dates have not yet been set, but the company is looking to get its first batch of albums out in April or May.

"Founded in 1978, Rough Trade has been home to such acts as The Smiths, Belle & Sebastian, The Strokes and The Libertines. In linking with World's Fair, Rough Trade joins a label group that already includes Bella Union Records, which is home to Midlake."
