BEGGARS ARKIVE is the catalogue and archive department for past and present Beggars Group labels and artists. Beggars labels include 4AD, Matador, Rough Trade, XL Recordings and Young. We also handle our legacy labels including Beggars Banquet, too pure, Wiiija, Situation Two and more.
Beggars began in 1977 and we have over 40 years of catalog to work with. We care passionately about sound quality, quality re-issues, artwork and when we can manage it….very fancy packaging. We handle all aspects of curation.
Over the last ten years, we have reissued albums by Bauhaus, Gary Numan, The Cult, The Fall, Pixies, Cocteau Twins, The Mortal Coil, Freeez, Buffalo Tom, The Charlatans and many many more. Our releases are done in full cooperation with the artists, oftentimes with them leading the charge.
We also manage a physical archive space, which contains a wealth of our musical and visual history. We’re continually working on maintaining, growing and cataloging the archive and it has become a great source of materials and a perfect space for research.
