Peterbilt Releases Website Back to list

The Peterbilt label was founded in 1988 by Guy Picciotto as a way to release a memorial 12" by the band Happy GO Licky. Though never intended to be a "real" functioning label, every so often situations would warrant the resurrection of the label and over the years Peterbilt issued LPs by DC bands such as Rain, Deadline, and The Black Light Panthers, all packaged in the distinctive manila envelopes that became the graphic signature of the label. Though all the original vinyl releases are long sold out, more recently, Peterbilt has partnered with the Dischord label to bring out CDs of archival material, as well as creating the Peterbilt CD Projects subdivision that put out a double pill shaped CD package from Octis (a solo project by Mick Barr of Orthrelm).
