THE ALL-TIME TOP 50 BEST SELLING M&E ARTISTES

Hey, let's do this in reverse order and milk the excitement! But first, a couple of pointy type things by way of explanation;

1) I've excluded Magic Moments At Twilight Time because of the obvious massive advantage of it being our own label

2) I've combined projects by the same artist or band, where appropriate, and treated it as a single listing

3) Although the Top 100 album chart was M&E releases only, this artist chart includes all the Distro Direct sales by M&E artistes as well

Without further adieu, let's start with positions 50 up to 31...

 
   
  50: Sirenee with Bild Der Frau, responsible for the best song ever about passing wind... 48: The electro-industrial sound of Canberra, they come from the land down under... 43: American electronic underground icon, L.G. Mair Jr. 41: The best acid jazz band ever to come out of Yorkshire, by 'eck, tha's got t' mean the mighty Kava Kava!
