Dischord Records Releases Entire Catalog on Bandcamp

Punk record label, Dischord Records, has made their entire catalog available on Band Camp (a music distribution website that has paid more than $100 million to independent artists since their launch in 2008).  Based out of Washington D.C., Dischord Records roster includes punk legends such as Minor Threat, Fugazi and Teen Idles.   "Every artist on the Dischord roster is now represented on its Bandcamp page, meaning that listeners can dive into the historic D.C. punk scene without needing an Apple Music or Spotify subscription.

Formed in 1980, the label was started by Minor Threat / Fugazi frontman Ian MacKay and Minor Threat drummer Jeff Nelson as a way to release the album "Minor Disturbance" by Teen Idles.  The label is known for producing all the albums in-house and relied on the DIY scene for promoting their releases....and without the help of major distribution.
