Twin/Tone Records

Profile:
Punk/alternative rock label from Minneapolis, MN, USA

Beginning with the 1977 release of The Suburbs - The Suburbs, Twin/Tone eventually released over 300 records by over 180 bands, and distributed over 20 smaller regional labels. The label became dormant in 1994 following the release of The Suburbs - Viva! Suburbs! (Live At First Avenue), licensing their more popular catalog titles to Restless Records.
