Welcome to my on-line tribute to the London based Chiswick label. Started in 1975 and, under various guises, still going strong to this day, Chiswick put out some of my favorite records ever. Here you'll find an ever growing collection of info, record sleeves, old advertisements and whatever comes to mind. So dig in and enjoy!

Dutch discography


Being Dutch myself, I figured it's time to make a first attempt at a Dutch discography.
Some background details; from 1977 to '79 Chiswick licensed it's wares to Ariola Benelux after which RCA took over 'till about '82. From that point on the records were generally only available as imports, with probably the only exception bein' the 1991 re-issue of Driver's Seat (a number 1 hit!). O.K. here goes:

Ariola:

45s:
***11.631 Radio Stars - Dirty pictures/sail Away (1977)
***11.969 Whirlwind - Hang Loose (I've Gotta Rock)/Together Forever (1978)
***15.561 Radio Stars - From A Rabbit/The Beast No.2 (1978)
***15.832 Whirlwind - Don't Be Crazy/A thousand Stars
***100.229 Whirlwind - I Only Wish (That I've Been Told)/Ducktails (1979)
***100.371 Rocky Sharpe & the Replays - Rama Lama Ding Dong/When The Clips Are Downs (1979)
***100.672 Damned - Love Song/Noise Noise Noise, Suicide (1979)

(The booklet in the Chiswick Story CD mentions various Dutch only couplings, but the catalogue numbers mentioned don't match with those above...) Corrections and updates are welcome in the comment box...

RCA also picked up the remaining stock of 550104, 550105, 550011 200352 and 200660 from Ariola, and stickered them "Marketed by RCA".

Obviously there's plenty more out there, and your additions are welcome in the comments box...
