Happy Squid Records was formed by the three members of the Urinals in 1978 in order to
release their initial recording, THE URINALS. The success of the project lead to two
subsequent 7" releases by the band, followed by THE HAPPY SQUID SAMPLER, which was an
attempt to broaden the roster of the label by including some of the bandís
contemporaries
Over the years, HSR has released material by 100 FLOWERS, MEAT PUPPETS, HUMAN HANDS,
LEAVING TRAINS, GUN CLUB, ANGST, THE RUB, STUKAS OVER BEDROCK, RADWASTE, GOD AND THE
STATE, and other vital and worthy artists.

In the early 1990s, HSR established a 7" label, CALAMARI SOUND, which released three
discs in an attempt to preserve the aesthetic qualities of the format which had
launched the label in the late 1970s.

In the 2000s, Happy Squid collaborated with Warning Label Records on the Urinals CD
"What is Real and What is Not," as well as a reissue of the anthology "Negative
Capability ... Check It Out," and an expanded version of the 1981 ep "Keats Rides
a Harley."

In 2013, Happy Squid anticipates the release of a new Urinals record (recorded, mixed,
and mastered.) The 100 Flowers catalog is being reissued on vinyl, and the classic
early-Urinals anthology NEGATIVE CAPABILITY has also just been released on vinyl.
