|Rubber came into existence around the same period as a number of other small independent labels sprouted up in Melbourne in the late eighties. Australia actually has a strong history of independent music making dating back to the late seventies, with labels like Sydney's Waterfront, Red Eye, Phantom and Citadel as well as Melbourne institutions like Au Go Go and Missing Link and Adelaide imprints such as Greasy Pop and Mr Spaceman. Rubber's late eighties indie label companions were Summershine, who produced a plethora of fuzzy UK oriented pop and Dogmeat which concentrated on Detroit/Geelong garage rock. For the ignorant and enthusiastic, it didn't seem out of the question to just up and start your own record label.|
