Dischord Records (1980-1985)
Mixed and Compiled by Erik Otis
Dischord Records is as most of you know a label based out of Washington, DC that is responsible for birthing hardcore and other forms of punk music that evolved out of the late 70's and 80's. Co-owned and created by Ian McKay and Jeff Nelson of the Teen Idles and Minor Threat, these two men set a standard for do-it-yourself ethics that captured the worlds attention immediately after the first few years of the labels existence. We have documented in whole, a song from every release in order of when they were released for the first 5 years of the labels existence. Every release I have ever bought from Dischord Records, and its dozens, has always had beautiful and thoughtful packaging in a very honest way. No over production or over thinking, and each of these songs reflects that simple yet powerful reality in full.
