Delerium Records was founded in 1991 by Freakbeat ‘zine editor Richard Allen and Amazing Pudding founder Ivor Trueman in Buckinghamshire, England, primarily as a label to promote new psychedelic music.

The label has become widely known due to the success of British progressive rock band Porcupine Tree - whom Allen also managed- but Delerium also released numerous recordings by many other psychedelic artists including Ozric Tentacles, psychedelic funk band Kava Kava, Sons of Selina, Moom, Praise Space Electric, Sadaar Bazaar and space rockers Omnia Opera.

The double CD label Sampler Pick and Mix was one of the first budget CD samplers and sold over 15,000 copies. Other compilations included the non psychedelic CD No Compromize released in aid of the Campaign for Free Education featuring artists including Dreadzone, Zion Train, Kava Kava, Utah Saints, Eat Static, Suede, Chumbawamba, The Wedding Present and others. No Compromize was organised by Kava Kava’s Pat Fulgoni - a band still going strong on Chocolate Fireguard Records with numerous releases and placements in US TV for example ‘Weeds’

Delerium folded in 2002, when the market for new psychedelic and progressive rock bands faded, although a couple of releases were to be re-issued later on including Psychomuzak’s album ‘The Extasie’ in 2004, which was produced by Porcupine Tree’s Steven Wilson.
