Asgard Records - Germany - vinyl
Sometime no later than 2005, this imprint released limited edition coloured vinyl records. The packaging is extremely basic, even by Rock-O-Rama standards.
ALCD - Germany - CD
This Rock-O-Rama imprint is simply listed as ALCD for now because the meaning behind the A.L. is unknown. It is likely that it could stand for Alliance or Allied or Alliierten or something along those lines, but it has not been confirmed. This imprint was mostly reissues of RCD along with some other imprints' releases. These are by far the most common of the entire ROR catalog.
B.H. Records - Germany - CD
B.H. probably stood for Blood & Honour, but it was not affiliated with the Blood & Honour organization. It is also possible that it was a resurrection of the "Big H" label name which was Herbert of Rock-O-Rama's first label, issuing bootlegs of old records from the 1950's and 1960's. While the RCD series was in hiatus, this imprint was more or less the main Rock-O-Rama imprint.
B.S. Records - Germany - CD
Rock-O-Rama sub-label repressing some old vinyl releases that hadn't made it to CD. It is believed by many that the B.S. stands for Blood & Soil. The first four releases (100-103) used the catalog prefix of BHCD on the side labels. All of the discs have the BSCD numbering on them. Some people list these four discs under both imprints, but it makes no sense to have these under the BHCD numbering.
Brutal Attack Records - Germany - CD
This imprint released a handful of Brutal Attack compilation CDs. All of the CDs were released as Ken McLellan and Brutal Attack, but at a quick glance these appear to be all Brutal Attack songs and no Ken McLellan solo material. Therefore, these are listed here simply as Brutal Attack.
Counter Culture Records - UK - single releases
This was an imprint label of White Noise Records.
First Floor Records - Germany - vinyl
Rock-O-Rama sub-label operating from 1983 to 1988 which released pop/new-wave albums and later moved into the darkwave/goth genre. The label was started to release albums from the band They Must Be Russians, but at least three other bands had releases on this label.
The numbering for this label goes up to 8, however number 6 doesnt seem to exist. Probably a They Must Be Russians 7-inch or a planned release of the Release the Bats LP that never made it to press.
Glory Dics - Germany - CD
Rock-O-Rama one-off sub-label.
Ian Records - Germany - vinyl
Rock-O-Rama sub-label which, in 1990, released the remaining pre-ROR Skrewdriver back catalog from 1977-1978. CD versions were released on a single disc under the main Rock-O-Rama banner.
ISD Records - Germany - LP and CD
This Rock-O-Rama imprint should not be confused with the Blood and Honour/Combat 18 owned label of the same name. This imprint here was used almost exclusively for Skrewdriver releases. The only exception was a Radikahl CD, which is something of an anomaly here since it used ICD 25 (the regular numbering went only to ICD 5) and the printing on the disc says Radikahl Records. The Radikahl imprint had only one release, RACD 1, so the numbering of 25 does not fit in there either.
Klan Records - UK - vinyl
British Rock-O-Rama sub-label, active from 1989-1991, on which all of the Klansmen albums were originally released. There are no known releases for KLAN 2 - KLAN 5. CD versions of these albums were released under the main Rock-O-Rama banner. A vinyl reissue of the last Klansmen LP was released on the Asgard sub-label over a decade later.
Mid Records - Germany - CD releases
Rock-O-Rama label active around 1998-1999 which released the Skrewdriver History series and a Wotan CD. The Wotan CD is very out of place amongst them, and its placement is another mystery.
Nordland Records - Germany - CD issues
This is the Rock-O-Rama sub-label, not the other skinhead rock label of the same name. This label mainly issued Nordland compilations and No Remorse reissues with a handful of other releases.
RAC Records - UK - vinyl
British Rock-O-Rama sub-label which released all of the 1989 No Remorse LPs. There are no known releases for RAC1 - RAC4, or RAC6 - RAC7. CD versions of these albums were released in altered forms under different Rock-O-Rama imprints.
Rebelles Européens - France
Rebelles Européens, based in Brest, France, has been headed by Gaël Bodilis and Brigitte Maljak,who was a law student in the early 1990s. Both were active in the Front National Jeunesse (the youth wing of Le Pen`s movement), and Bodilis in the Troisieme Voie as well. According to the Paris newspaper "Le Monde", Rebelles Europeens was dissolved at the end of 1988, but quietly revived itself in July 1991 with Maljak as president and Bodilis as treasurer. These years are probably incorrect since the label was very active in releasing albums in 1989 and 1990. Going by the release dates, it would seem more likely that operations went on hiatus in 1992 and resumed in 1994.
Rebelles Européens - France - 12" vinyl
There were 45 12-inch records released between 1987 and 1994.
Rebelles Européens - France - 7" vinyl
There were 30 7-inch records released between 1987 and 1992 plus one 7-inch released in 1986 before the Rebelles Européens label was officially launched.
Rebelles Européens - France - CD
There were five CD releases between 1991 and 1992. All but one of them were reissues of vinyl LPs. At least one other CD was put out as a RE release, called Debout! Vol. 6, but this was an American bootleg allegedly by a distributor who wanted to recoup his losses from a RE purchase that was never delivered.
Rock-O-Rama Records - Germany - vinyl
Rock-O-Rama Records began as a mail-order service in the 1970s, run by Herbert Egoldt. It was the first significant source for English and American punk records in Germany. The Rock-O-Rama label was officially launched in 1980 with the release of a 4 song EP by the German punk band Vomit Visions. The label continued releasing mostly German punk until about 1982 when it added licensed pressings of Finnish hardcore bands to its catalog. In 1984, Rock-O-Rama forever changed its direction with the release of Skrewdriver's second LP. Over the next couple years it completely phased out all of the punk music and by the end of 1986, all future releases were Oi and RAC music.
From the first release up until the early 1990s, all releases gave a Brühl, West Germany address for the label. For most of the 1990s up until Egoldt's death in 2005, a Köln address was given. However, on many of the later releases, many different label names were used for various reasons, and in these cases, no origin address was given.
After Egoldt's death, the label was taken over by Grenzenlose Ltd., which also owns RockNord, and operates out of Rees. Rock-O-Rama has started officially releasing vinyl records again. The previous official vinyl releases ended in 1993, though some unofficial vinyls were released under different label names during the years in-between.
Rock-O-Rama Records - Germany - CD releases
The original line of Rock-O-Rama CDs went from 1989-1993. There were a couple odd RCD releases in the mid-1990s but the RCD numbering was mostly dormant until the early 2000's. The new Rock-O-Rama uses the RCD numbering starting with 1001.
Many of these CDs are bootlegged by various skinhead music distributors, especially CDs from Skrewdriver, Onkelz, Brutal Attack and the rest of the top-tier skinhead bands. In an email correspondence with Herbert Egoldt, he once stated that he believed US distributors/labels MSR Productions and Micetrap Distribution were the worst offenders. In the 1990s, Wolfpack Services was also said to be a big bootlegger of Rock-O-Rama CDs of bands that were connected with the Blood & Honour organization. A good way to tell is if the inner-ring code numbers on the discs are similar to those that the label's own releases. Some genuine Rock-O-Rama CDs have inner-ring codes that begin with PILZ or ISV or simply the RCD catalog number in a distinctive font, though they may have used other pressing plants so those may not be the only genuine markings.
Sometime around 1998, Rock-O-Rama switched from factory pressed CDs to burned CDs. Today, under new ownership, they appear to be following Herbert's example and are still using burned CDs. These are the black discs with a white label with black ink-jet printing on it.
Some numbers were skipped in the series. For instance: RCD 116 had no official release associated with it, but the press code on the disc of the first pressing of RCD 126 contains RCD 116 so it is possible that 116 was the original number given to the Body Checks CD, but possibly due to a misprinting it settled instead at RCD 126. The new owners of Rock-O-Rama have since gone back and released a CD with the number 116, so it is also possible that this title, As The Drum Beats by Brutal Attack, was originally intended for this number but was abandoned for some reason.
Two numbers are included in this list which are not official ROR releases. RCD 100 and RCD 666 are believed to be bootlegs made to look like an official ROR release, although the latter does a poor job of it.
Rock-O-Rama Reloaded - Germany - 12" vinyl releases
Soon after Rock-O-Rama came into the hands of its new owners, it was announced that new vinyl would be released. The first new releases were remastered editions of previously released material, in small quantities, on different coloured vinyl.
Rock-O-Rama Reloaded - Germany - CD releases
The new Rock-O-Rama kicked off their CD line with CD versions of two of their first three vinyl releases with a CD version of the third one following shortly thereafter. Other CDs were released later but so far have no new vinyl counterpart.
Skull Records - Germany - CD
This is the Rock-O-Rama sub-label which issued some repackaged titles from the original Skull Records.
Street Rock-N-Roll - Germany - 7" vinyl original
Starting in 1989, Rock-O-Rama began production of a series of 7-inch singles under the imprint name Street Rock'N'Roll which contained, with a few exceptions, songs from recently released albums from Rock-O-Rama and its sublabels. Most came in a generic company sleeve, some in a plain white sleeve, and a very small number had picture sleeves which were probably made by the respective bands. There was some variation of the centre labels, some were dark brown/black with gold print, some were yellow with black print. The darker labels were sometimes very difficult to read, so it's a safe assumption that the yellow labels came about to rectify this problem. The initial series ended in 1991 after 61 releases.
When the new Rock-O-Rama website came online, there were an additional 4 EPs offered which are released under this imprint, starting at catalog number 100. No dates are given on the records or sleeves, and the sleeves are one-color picture sleeves. The estimated release date for these is around 2005.
Street Rock-N-Roll - Germany - 7" vinyl series
A few years into the life of the new Rock-O-Rama, the Street Rock-n-Roll label was resurrected once again. Unlike the original 7-inch series, these all come in full colour sleeves.
United Records - UK - vinyl releases
British Rock-O-Rama sub-label, active from about 1987-1991, which released LPs from the band Skullhead. CD versions of these albums were released under the main Rock-O-Rama banner. The United Records name was resurrected in the mid-1990's for a line of CDs under the UNCD numbering, but the numbering was different from the vinyl releases.
White League Australia - Australia - LP, vinyl and CD
White League Australia released CD versions of seven Rebelles Européens albums in 1995. As this label began the year following the last official Rebelles Européens release, it would seem that this was simply an alias for Rebelles Européens and was not actually based in Australia.
Bootlegs of some of these releases have surfaced in recent years. All original WL releases had blank inner traycards. If the traycard has printing on it, you definitely have a bootleg. One vinyl release was put out under this imprint, but it is not an official White League release. It was allegedly made by a US distributor trying to recoup some of his losses after a RE/WL shipment to him never arrived.
White Noise Records - UK - Vinyl releases
Was the music label started by the National Front in the UK.
White Power Records - UK - vinyl releases
British Rock-O-Rama sub-label, active from about 1987-1991. It is believed that there are no releases for WP1 - WP2, WP5 - WP6, WP8 or WP12. This sub-label was possibly under the guidance of Ian Stuart from Skrewdriver. CD versions of these releases were issued under the main Rock-O-Rama banner.
