Household Ink Records is a little label with a few big ideas. It started out in 1987 as the in-house label for the new music combo Headless Household. Now, with 40+ titles in the HI catalogue, Household Ink is also a growing, thriving micro-conduit for assorted groups, including
Dudley, Nate Birkey, flapping, Flapping, Joe Woodard, Shelly Rudolph,
Julie Christensen, David Piltch, Zen Horse Repair, Natalie D-Napoleon, Richard Dunlap, Lean-To, Brad Rabuchin, Jeff Elliott, Cara Tower, Brad Dutz, Fringe Deities, and Jennifer Terran.
Ideas are flung about. Genres stretch–new music, folk, rock, jazz, and an operative otherness. Forward motion is valued, as well as thinking in a sideways fashion. Somewhere, amidst confusion and polyism, come little moments of clarity and potential humor.
