Upon reading that Wilco has started their own label, it would be easy to say that the guys apparently don’t have enough to do. You know, it’s not just enough to have a calendar filled with tours and studio sessions. To say that would not only be easy, but also kind of wrong as Jeff Tweedy made it clear that starting dBpm Records has been a long time coming.
“This is an idea we’ve discussed for years,” Tweedy said in a release. “We really like doing things ourselves, so having our own label feels pretty natural to me.”
The band’s manager, Tony Margherita, will be in charge of operations and run the headquarters planned for Easthampton, Mass. He explained that when the band reached the end of its last deal, its members agreed it was time for a change. As such, they looked to create their own imprint that will release all future Wilco recordings. The records will be distributed by ANTI-, which will provide other label services, too.
