Rough Trade America was an extension of the influential and successful Rough Trade UK label which had started the indie movement in the UK. After a period of dormancy following the dissolution of the Rough Trade family in the early '90s, co-founders Geoff Travis and Jeannette Lee revived the label a few years ago. One of their first releases was a three-song demo from a New York band called The Strokes... and the rest, as they say, is history.
