OCTACROS




1934 - 1937




British label, which bought up most of the Piccadilly / Metropole companies' metalwork in the early 1930s and reissued those. It also issued its own recordings - usually by second-tier or provincial bands.

The records on the Octacros label were made to be used in movie theaters as intermission music and at ice skating rinks; as the label states, they could be played in public by those who had a contract with Synchrophone. It was bought out by Decca in 1937.
