|Introduction||March 26th, 2016, marked the 30th anniversary of Bar/None Records. In the three decades since, the label has maintained an active roster of veteran and newfound artists. We're currently celebrating the longevity of the Feelies and the burgeoning popularity of the Front Bottoms. A lot of great music has appeared on Bar/None throughout the years including the initial releases from Of Montreal and Freedy Johnston, the breakthrough albums for Edwyn Collins and Yo la Tengo, returns to active duty for Alex Chilton, Luka Bloom, Juliana Hatfield and 10,000 Maniacs. Through it all their greatest pride is in the consistent quality of the artists they’ve worked with and the music they’ve made. Bar/None recordings tend to be singular and surprising and always contain powerful songwriting. Simply put, as a body of work, the Bar/None catalogue stands the test of time. To celebrate its 30 years of existence Bar/None will be digging into its vaults for various goodies to share with music lovers so stay tuned.|
