Durtro was a British independent record label established by the British poet, singer, songwriter, and visual artist David Tibet in 1988, to publish his own work and that of fellow friends and musicians. It was replaced by one of Tibet's earlier labels, Coptic Cat, in 2010.[1]

The label has published nearly every release of Tibet's band Current 93 since 1988. The records were distributed by World Serpent Distribution, which handled the distribution of similar artists such as Coil, Death in June, and Nurse With Wound until 2004, when World Serpent went bankrupt. After 2004, Durtro began releasing records under the name Durtro-Jnana, using Revolver USA and Cargo UK for distribution. As of 2010, all releases were released on Coptic Cat, which was supplanted by The Spheres label in 2013.[citation needed]
