VA - Keeper of the Secret - A Sampler of Dionysus Records Empire

Dionysus Records was started by me, quite haphazardly and from scratch at the tail end of 1983 because I wanted to release a 45 by my then band Yard Trauma, pictured at left.  The label was actually an extension of a cassette-only label run I ran out of the Roads to Moscow record store on Park Ave in my hometown of Tucson, AZ between ‘81 and ‘83. In 1984, I moved to Los Angeles and became pals with Greg and Suzy Shaw at Bomp who helped me to establish the label here in Southern California by financing and distributing the label’s first two albums (by Yard Trauma and Thee Fourgiven) and a couple of singles (by The Cynics.) Dionysus was asked to join the legendary indie label distributor, Mordam Records in 1985 and… well, a lot has happened since then of which may or may not be interesting to you thus I’m going to keep this short. Maybe I’ll write a book someday.
