California indie label started in 1981. Pressed and distributed for most of its existance by Capitol/EMI (with its first significant releases appearing on the EMI America label). It also had its own Capitol sublabel (Capitol/Enigma) from 1986 to 1991 while still releasing material independently. Merged with Restless Records in 1991. The balance of its catalog is now owned by Rykodisc (via its purchase of Restless, which is now operated as a full-blown subsidiary) while the Poison and early Red Hot Chili Peppers catalogs remain with Capitol.
