 As a label, Zonophone goes back to 1899, so it's pretty ancient. According to Brian Rust's 'American Record Label' book it was absorbed into the Victor Talking Machine company in 1903. The book says that in Britain it was associated with His Master's Voice, and joined the EMI group along with that label and with Regal. Regal and Zonophone were merged, and from January 1933 Regal Zonophone records appeared.

Regal Zonophone seems to have expired in the '40s but it was given a new lease of life in the vinyl era by EMI. After it bit the dust for a second time EMI relaunched Zonophone as a 'new wave' kind of label, but it didn't last all that long. The likes of Honey Bane make a marked contrast with the label's early material.

 Was it really 1981 when she was on "Top Of The Pops" I can remember it so clearly, All I was thinking she was on the 'Crass' label now look at her, but good luck to her.

 Have added a few old scans showing that this was also issued as a limited edition in a gatefold sleeve complete with a "free" single.

Not sure how to go about adding this extra single info which featured the songs "Ain't Nobody's Business If I Do" and "Negative Exposure"

Great single, a personal favourite of mine. The A side is a great infectious quirky piece of pop that won her a spot on "Top Of The Pops" (as seen in the video) whilst the B side is a slow dreamy number with psychedelic tinges. It also has one of those infinite run out grooves, so on decks without auto return, it keeps on playing a loop until you remove the arm yourself.

 Honey's sole appearance on BBC TV's "Top Of The Pops"
