Stuart 'Chuggy' Leath

The hardest working man in music, Stuart Leath – Chuggy to his friends – is rightly known as one of the most-prolific one-man operations in underground music. Main pilot at the Emotional Recordings including Emotional Response, Emotional Rescue, and Sacred Summits. A friend for rare post-punk, disco, house (and more), who cut his teeth raving in the late ’80s and early ’90s, Leath talks of himself as something of an elder when it comes to the reissues game, from digging in obscure locations, basements and via record dealers, to being an early adopter of the Internet and all its record buying possibilities.
