New Rose records
(originaly 7 rue Pierre Sarrazin, Paris 6è)

New Rose Records was THE french indie label of the eighties. Created by Patrick Mathé and Louis Thevenon, New Rose had some 10 years (1981/1992) of magnificience and worldwide fame. It was one of the worldwide most important independant label.
Among new bands and french bands, Patrick Mathé also re-discovered or gave a new opportunity to many of legends of Rock'n'Roll (Willie Alexander, Alex Chilton, Sky Saxon, Roky Erickson,...). It was sometimes like a big family (just see the "Play New Rose for Me" compilation to see what I mean).

The parisian New Rose record shop, rue Pierre Sarrazin, close to Odéon, was also actually the center of the then independent scene (while others labels -some distributed by New Rose- could play the same role in other towns in France). [shop photos available through the Misc.page]

In 1992, the label had been sold to the FNAC (actually Fnac Music), but, mainly due to Fnac -most enormous european chain & distributor- reorganisation and business goals, New Rose disappeared early in 1994; and Patrick Mathé initiated another label : Last Call records -with the initial New Rose records spirit, still successfull, issuing -among others- some of the bands already with New Rose records.
