Angular Recording Corporation was an independent record label founded in New Cross, South East London. It was established in June 2003 by two ex-Goldsmiths College students, Joe Daniel and Joe Margetts, who reclaimed a local Ordnance Survey
Ordnance Survey
Triangulation Station and made it their first artefact: ARC 001.[1] The label's founders were influenced by a love of angular pop music and the Manchester
Manchester
label Factory Records. Gaining funding through medical testing, Angular Recording Corporation was able to finance its debut release in November 2003, the NME-championed The New Cross : An Angular Sampler. NME
NME
made it the lead review in the magazine, ahead of many major label releases.[2] In the 2011 England riots, the label lost all its stock and entire back catalogue in the PIAS warehouse fire.[3] An Angular Store website remains active.
