About SideOneDummy

SideOneDummy Records started in 1995 when roommates Bill Armstrong and Joe Sib were both looking to start their own separate record labels. Joe was starting SideOne Records and Bill was about to launch Dummy Recordings. Instead of going their own way, they decided to pool their money together, combined the 2 names and rented a small office space on Melrose Avenue and thus, SideOneDummy Records was born. Today, we’ve moved our office to Hollywood and continue to release records from some of alternative music’s best up-and-coming bands and the label will be celebrating its 20th year anniversary in 2015.
