Twin/Tone Records

Twin/Tone Records

Profile:
Between 1977 and 1994, Twin/Tone Records released over 300 records. The first project to be released on the Twin/Tone label was a nine song 7" EP (on red vinyl) by The Suburbs in April of 1978. The last project to be released on the Twin/Tone label was a live Suburbs CD released in November of 1994. During this time we worked with over 100 bands and 11 indie labels. We helped over 25 of the bands go on to major labels.

Today the label is in "moth balls," finding the traditional physical CD market very unfriendly to indie labels, we wait for the alternative that digital delivery promises (hopefuly sooner than later)... Meanwhile, we have licensed some of our bigger projects (The Replacements, Soul Asylum, Ween, The Jayhawks...) to Restless Records who markets and distributes them through Ryko. We currently do not sign any bands, nor release any new projects...

Fingerprints also did a great three song 7" on this same label with "Smiles For Sale" and is TTR 8013 and comes with sleeve. (Release date is unclear, but feels like a 1979 or 1980 release for many reasons.)
