    Since 1994, Bloodshot Records has championed music that lurks between genres; the good stuff nestled in the dark, nebulous cracks where punk, country, soul, pop, bluegrass, blues and rock mix and mingle and mutate. Bloodshot artists work over American roots forms with chains and velvet gloves with little regard for formality or protocol; they aren't afraid to molest and caress these forms to take music into uncharted and exciting waters. Bloodshot and it's artists share a punk/DIY ethic of expression. Bloodshot's artist roster includes: Bobby Bare Jr., Detroit Cobras, Scott H. Biram, The Bottle Rockets, Deadstring Brothers, Gore Gore Girls, Wayne Hancock, Graham Parker, The Silos, Waco Brothers, and Wee Hairy Beasties. From Bloodshot's shabby offices on a bleak stretch of the Northwest Side of Chicago, the label forges ahead in an environment hostile to the little guy, keeping its steel-toed boot on the throats of the forces responsible for the free fall decline of the contemporary music scene.

    Manifesto Records has released music from a celebrated list of artists. Although it was founded in 1993, Manifesto is the successor to indie labels dating back to 1968, beginning as Bizarre Records (and its companion label, Straight Records). Over the next several years, Bizarre signed artists such as Alice Cooper, Tim Buckley, Captain Beefheart, Ted Nugent, Wild Man Fischer, and others. Later, a third label, Discreet, was added, and the labels released albums until 1975. In 1988, the reactivated Bizarre/Straight reissued albums by Tim Buckley, Alice Cooper, The GTOs, Lord Buckley, Captain Beefheart, and others. In 1994, in addition to the core albums by Tom Waits (his earliest recordings, released as The Early Years Volumes 1 and 2), and six albums from Tim Buckley, Manifesto began to release new albums and re-issues, including albums by The Wedding Present, and, later, Cinerama, and other British bands like Sing-Sing and ballboy, tribute albums to Tom Waits and Tim Buckley, and the reunion album of Concrete Blonde, Lilys and Cranes. In 2005, The Wedding Present re-formed and Manifesto released the well-received Take Fountain, and later, El Rey. In 2001, Manifesto re-issued one of the most important catalogues in punk rock history — five albums by Dead Kennedys. Later, another live album was released, and in 2005 Manifesto also released Dead Kennedys’ first album, Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables, in both an original version and a new package with a new documentary DVD entitled Fresh Fruit for Rotting Eyeballs. With these last releases, the entire Dead Kennedys catalogue is now on Manifesto. In 2014, Manifesto has released a box set of 7’ vinyl singles, the Dead Kennedys Original Singles Collection. In 2009, Manifesto became the home of the imprint for The Turtles, called FloEdCo. We have released The Turtles’ Save The Turtles: The Turtles’ Greatest Hits; vinyl re-issues of It Ain’t Me Babe and Happy Together; and three albums by Flo & Eddie. Manifesto Records will continue to release and re-issue quality recordings in the future. Please review our catalogue pages to see what is currently available. Manifesto is distributed by eOne Distribution in the U.S. and Canada, and by Proper Music Group in the UK, and H’ART Musikvertrieb for Europe.
