A Rough Trade Records começou como uma gravadora independente, sediada em Londres, Inglaterra. Cresceu através da Rough Trade Shop, fundada por Geoff Travis em West London em 1976. A gravadora foi formada em 1978 e entrou também no negócio da distribuição. Tornou-se independente da loja em 1982.

Anualmente a loja solta uma lista com os 100 Melhores Álbuns do ano, uma ótima forma de conhecer novos artistas e adicionar novos artistas em sua playlist. Confira a seleção. No fim do post preparamos uma playlist com um som de cada álbum citado.
