Skam Records is an independent Electronic and IDM record label based in Manchester, England, founded by Andy Maddocks around 1990. Skam’s first 12-inch single is rumoured to have never been officially released, only distributed as a promo. This self-titled debut from Lego Feet (SKA001) (Sean Booth and Rob Brown, now commonly known to be the pioneering duo Autechre); approximately 100–150 copies are believed to exist. The label followed with two 12" records from a project known as Gescom, whose members vary between each release. It is widely believed that Booth and Brown of Autechre are staple members, however. Other early Skam releases came from the likes of Freeform, Bola, Jega and Boards of Canada. These first ten label releases are commonly regarded as classic electronic records, during which Skam was at its prime.[citation needed] With exception of the oft reprinted EPs Boards of Canada's Hi Scores EP (SKA008) and Gescom's Keynell (SKA007), early Skam releases still fetch high prices on the collector's market. Skam entered the full-length market in 1998 with the releases of Soup by Bola (SKALD/P2) and Music Has The Right To Children by Boards of Canada, the latter being jointly released with Warp Records (SKALD/P1, WARPCD/LP55), both of which have been praised by the IDM community as classic recordings.[citation needed] . A recurring feature on the packaging of Skam releases is the name of the artist printed in Braille.
