By 1983, Beggars was releasing Bauhaus, The Associates, The Mighty Wah!, The Icicle Works, The Cult, The Go-Betweens, Love & Rockets, The Fall, The Charlatans, Buffalo Tom, Loop, and others. Currently, the label has one of the hottest catalogs around, and works with some of the most innovative and exciting talent of the day. In addition to the direct roster, associated labels include 4AD, Mo Wax, Play Louder, Rough Trade, Sulfur, Too Pure, Wiiija, and XL. All help make Beggars eclectic as well as innovative.
