Here's a top ten list I never thought I'd write. But once I stumbled upon the names of #2 & #1 on the list, I knew there had to be more.
say you're going to launch a record label and you wanted to give your company's name as little chance of being taken seriously as possible.
You might go with something strange, crazy, stupid or unappetizing like...ˇ
Top 10 strange, but true, record labels
And yes these all exist and are open for business.
10. Wanker Records
Not named after a constant masturbator. Wanker gets it name from founder Nick Wanker. They've released stuff with Dee Dee Ramone, The Willowz, Paleface, White Zombie and otheres.
K, now get back to touching yourself.
9. Dumb Records (They named it, not me)
Pop, punk Japanese label featuring artists The Headbangers and Socho Pistons
but not Barenaked Ladies, Coldplay, Beyonce or The Strokes.
8. Coming in Second Records
Bands doomed to be #2: A Seasonal Disguise, The Very Most and With Child are some on this labels list.
7. Shroom Angel
Where drugs involved in naming this progressive rock label?
I have no idea but your cat has 2 heads man and it's talking Cajun. WTF?
Russian Industrial music label with big names like Nazi Bastards From Aldebaran, The Infant Cycle and Overdose Kunst.
What's it mean? Something not very nice is my guess.
5. Absolutely Kosher Records
This label has lots of Indie bands in its stable, mostly from California.
The album production is all blessed by a Rabbi.
4. Tee Pee Records
This actually seems like a legit, profitable NYC label...with a poorly chosen name.
Tea Pee bands include Brian Jonestown Massacre, Hopewell, Lovetones and Ya Ho Wa 13
The name, reminds me a bad joke I heard years ago.
3. Hoo-Bangin' Records
Rapper Mac 10's label. Named after one of his song titles.
These ho's (with an extra 'O' for subtlety?) were attached to Capitol Records for a spell but got kicked to the curb and signed with Cash Money Records.
2. Shit Sandwich Records.
Shitty bands include Nanox, Test Patterns and Cococoma.
Hopefully the sound better than they smell.
I am not joking on the name. ShitSandwich.com
1. Douche master Records
Bands with that super-fresh feeling include Baby Shakes, Apache, Gentlemen Jessie and Hex Dispensers.
You can find them all at your local drugstore.
