Quick label overview...

The first Twin/Tone Records releases were three red vinyl EPs, by The Suburbs, Spooks and Fingerprints in April of 1978. The last project to be released during the label's initial 20-year run was a live Suburbs CD in November of 1994. Between 1977 and 1994, Twin/Tone Records released over 300 records. During those years we worked with over 100 bands and 11 indie labels. We helped over 25 of the bands go on to major labels.

We have licensed some of our bigger projects (The Replacements, Soul Asylum, Ween, The Jayhawks...) which are distributed/ marketed via Ryko/ Warner Brothers. Many of our titles are available via the iTunes store or and for a little while longer, custom burned CDs. .

At this site, browse around and visit some of the musical history made by us over the past 40 years. We are slowly adding to this site, the materials needed to place on the pages are in many cases long gone and it gets harder to track them down as time goes by.

To bands and artists: With many projects having been "out of print" for more than 20 years, we have lost contact with many of you... With us now selling custom CD's of your out of print titles, we may owe you royalties... if you haven't been contacted by us in the last year, please check in so we can update our contact information... e-mail Paul
