Last Gang Records was formed by Canadian music industry attorney Chris Taylor and concert promoter Donald Tarlton in the Fall of 2002 at the Pop Montreal Music Festival.

Taylor had been working for the group Metric since the early days of 1998 and had literally “shopped” the band to over 100 record labels around the world but to no avail. He was prepared to release the album himself with his own money when he met with Tarlton. After viewing the Metric video for “Grow Up and Blow Away” (a single on a Metric album that would not be released until 2007) Donald offered to help Taylor realize his vision of introducing Metric’s music to the world. They formed a joint venture company under the DKD label group Last Gang Records. Since formation, LGR has branched out to be its own stand alone record label.

Last Gang Records has released recordings by:
Death From Above 1979
Emily Haines & the Soft Skeleton
Bang Lime
Mother Mother
Femme Fatale
The New Pornographers
Tricky Woo
From Fiction
Crystal Castles
