415 Records was about punk and new wave bands from its base in SF, CA. This represents some of the best from the label 415 Records was a force in the 70s/early 80s, offering punk, new wave, synthpop/electrorock music from its based in SF, CA.

The label primarily featured music from SF bands although as the label grew, they signed bands from other cities as well.

The label name 415 is a reference both to the telephone area code for the San Francisco area and to the police code for "disturbing the peace." Label founder Howie Klein was General Manager of Reprise Records and Executive V.P.

of Warner Bros. Records after leaving 415. The label had a close relationship with Fillmore impresario Bill graham, insured 415 artists received great exposure.

The staff at 415 so so adept and the label so successful, they made a distribution deal with Columbia who signed Wore Train, Translator and Romeo Void 415 was a fertile ground for exposing San Francisco punk/new wave acts like The Nuns, Red Rockers and the Pop-O-Pies.

Press Quotes: "While the bands on 415 all belonged to an '80s rock underground, Klein favored accessible, fun new wave bands over the hard-core punk or thrash metal bands that often played the same clubs." _Joel Selvin, S.F.

Chronicle "A lot of people didn't even think it was punk." _Jack Boulware, Gimme Something Better
