Cleopatra Records was founded in 1992 by long-time music fan, Brian Perera. Brian acquired his love for the music business by becoming an active participant in the Los Angeles club scene through the 80's and 90's. The label was officially launched with three releases, Pressurehed (a space rock band from the SF bay area) followed by the release of Motörhead's "On Parole", which had long been out of print. The third release, was actually a series of reissues by electronic pioneers Kraftwerk.
