Independent label: Shagrat Records was started in 1990 by Nigel Cross, founding editor of Bucketfull of Brains magazine. It issued singles in an TS-000 numerical series. Shagrat was a British supergroup formed by Steve Peregrin Took R.i.p and Mick Farren R.i.p in February 1970 after they split with Twink, their partner in the prototype Pink Fairies supergroup of late 1969. They recruited Larry Wallis (guitar, backing vocals) and Tim Taylor (bass). Mick Farren left the band shortly after and never recorded with them. Shagrat then became Took's band outright with Wallis, Taylor, Phil Lenoir (drums), and later Dave Bidwell (percussion). Farren died at the age of 69 in 2013, after collapsing while performing with the Deviants at the Borderline Club in London. Steve Took died on Monday 27 October 1980 at the age of 31. At the time, he was sharing a flat with Valerie Billiet. Took's death certificate records the cause of death as being due to asphyxiation after inhaling a cocktail cherry. Drugs were not listed as a contributing factor, even though Took's death is often listed as a "drugs misadventure". He is buried in Kensal Green Cemetery Distributed By Shagrat Records Records.
