Wiiija Records/Beggars Group


Wiiija was founded back in 1988 by three Rough Trade employees inspired by the innovative indie music coming out of the U.S. at the time. They started out with releases by Terminal Cheesecake, Bastard Kestrel, and Silverfish. A ton of great albums by bands like Cornershop, Huggy Bear, Bikini Kill, Free Kitten, Guv'ner, and Heavenly would follow. Wiiija became a part of the Beggars Group in 1996 and closed shop for good in the early 2000s.
