Label Spotlight: SideOneDummyRecords

This is a new installment I'm starting here on The Otter Limits. I got the idea from Dave (aka Oklahoma Lefty. Thanks for the idea Dave!

Anyway, so what I am doing is picking out a random record label. It could be an independent label or it could be a major label. It will just depend on what mood I am in I guess. So I will pick this record label and give you some random facts about the label.

For this maiden voyage, I have picked SideOneDummy Records.

This is of course, not a complete list, they have released albums by other bands as well.

In 1999, they released another Warped Tour compilation. Included on this one were tracks by Dropkick Murphys, MxPx, Less Than Jake, 7 Seconds, Unwritten Law, and others.

Every year since then they have released a Warped Tour comp cd.

The 2010 compilation includes songs by Blink 182, Alkaline Trio, The Bouncing Souls, Dropkick Murphys and many many others. Look, I sound like an RCA commercial now. LoL!

Their artist range in styles from punk to ska to hardcore to folk to Celtic punk.
