Founded by the folks behind Purple Records, Safari Records was launched in the wake of punk in 1977.
By far the label’s biggest star was Toyah, who progressed from post-punk beginnings to score a string of huge hits in the early 80s (including ‘I Want To Be Free’, ‘Thunder In The Mountains’ and ‘Good Morning Universe’), as well as releasing several successful albums.
Other than Toyah, Safari was also notable as a home for punk pioneers Wayne County & The Electric Chairs, new wave band The Boys, ex-Deep Purple singer Glenn Hughes, several British reggae acts (such as The Cimarons and Weapon Of Peace), disco duo The Chanter Sisters and various Mod and Ska Revival acts (captured on the LP Uppers On The South Downs).
