Independent label: Dischord Records is a Washington, D.C.-based independent record label specializing in the independent punk music of the D.C.-area music scene. The label is co-owned by Ian MacKaye and Jeff Nelson, who founded Dischord in 1980 to release Minor Disturbance by The Teen Idles. The label is most notable for employing the do-it-yourself ethic, producing all of its albums by itself and selling them at discount prices without finance from major distributors. Dischord continues to release records by bands from Washington D.C., and to document and support the Washington D.C. music scene. Dischord was a local label in the early days of hardcore, and is one of the more famous independent labels, along with the likes of Alternative Tentacles, SST Records, and Touch & Go Records. Early releases by Dischord were relatively well produced compared to other punk recordings of the time. Teen Idles was an extended play released by Dischord Records to commemorate the label's one hundredth release. The EP contains material from the two demo sessions the band recorded in February and April 1980. Tracks 1 and 3 are originally by "The Slinkees", the original name of the band before Nathan Strejcek joined on vocals. Distributed By Dischord Records.
