Snapper Records, the UK indie label of W.A.S.P., The Pretty Things and Steven Wilson, has been bought out by managing director Frederick Jude.

Jude has been with Snapper for 21 years. “After 21 years at Snapper and MD for the last 13 years, I’m truly excited and re-energised to have become the majority shareholder of The Snapper Group,” Jude said in a statement.

“At Snapper we’re continuing to evolve and move with the differing ways people consume music – building on specialist music genres with the Kscope and Peaceville labels and successfully elevating some of our artists to the top of those genres.”

Snapper also releases music for Peter Green of Fleetwood Mac fame, Paul Draper of Mansun and Richard Barbieri of Japan.

“We maintain a family feel with our artists, for many of whom we have their entire catalogue or majority recording history,” he said.

Forthcoming releases coming in 2018 include new studio albums from The Anchoress, The Pineapple Thief, Bloodbath, and a deluxe 21st anniversary edition of the classic UK #1 Mansun album Attack of the Grey Lantern.
