This Autumn will see the release of a three part box set series which showcases the eclectic catalogue of the infamous Japanese record label. Vanity Records was responsible for the release of some of the most cutting edge music across the spectrum of post punk, experimental, electronica, synth, ambient and beyond. Much of the music was released in small runs of vinyl during the 70s and 80s.
The three part box set will be reissued and released by Studio Warp/Kyou Records - an anthology which best showcases the eclecticism of the imprint and the role it played in underground music.
