Ian Broudie originally emerged from the post punk Liverpool music scene of the late seventies playing in the band " Big in Japan" alongside fellow band members Bill Drummond (KLF) Holly Johnson(Frankie Goes To Hollywood) Budgie( The Slits/Souxie And The Banshees). Jayne Casey(Pink Military)
Before the band ended in 1979 they created the independent record label Zoo Records which would later feature the bands Teardrop Explodes and Echo & The Bunnymen.
This in turn led to him producing several bands (sometimes credited under the pseudonym "Kingbird") starting with Echo & The Bunnymen and including The Fall, The Pale Fountains and Wah along with many other bands for the emerging independent record labels of the time including Factory Records, Rough Trade, Creation Records, Beggars Banquet etc.
