Welcome to Pop The Balloon Records!
After more than 15 years of existence, here we are on the net.
It all started in 1994 when our good friend Gilles Raffier decided to give life to an
old project, launching his own label devoted to Pop & Power-Pop.
For more information, you will find hereafter an interview by Inaki Orbezua which was
published in his Spanish magazine Ottono Cheyenne issue # 4.
Gilles passed away early 2003, but Pop The Balloon keeps releasing some of our
favourite music with songs we really like, no matter if it is Pop, Power-Pop, Rock,
Punk Rock, Raw Soul...
The label represents the music we like.
Check our mail order list. There are lots of magazines, fanzines, books, new & used 
records. The list is not complete yet. For a full catalog, drop us a line.
Stay tuned!
