Buddyhead Records is an independent record label that sprouted and grew as an extension of this website, which was launched on the internet when Travis Keller moved to Los Angeles, California in the summer 1998. The label itself was born on February 25, 2000 because we were really bored… and also because we felt there was a slew of bands and artists that deserved greater attention than they were receiving. The idea was to illuminate good art and make ourselves laugh once in a while too. The record label evolved as an extension of that same spirit that was on the website, to actually release the music we thought deserved attention and that nobody else would touch anyway.
Buddyhead has released records by various bands such as: Ink & Dagger, Text, At The Drive-In, Murder City Devils, Dios, The Cassettes, Moccasin, Wires On Fire, Radio Vago, Your Enemies Friends, The Mean Reds, 400 Blows, The Cassettes, SHAT, The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Icarus Line, Burning Brides, The PoPo, Modwheelmood and Bonfire Beach most reccently. We also put out a few compilations that featured the likes of Primal Scream, Mudhoney, Iggy Pop, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Wire, The Dwarves, Dead Meadow, Le Tigre, TV on the Radio, The Jesus Lizard, Atari Teenage Riot, Singapore Sling, Turbonegro, The Locust, The Evaporators, The Starvations, Enon, Decahedron, Bluebird, Beehive & The Barracudas, British Sea Power, The Fiery Furnaces, Cave In and Weezer.
