Gold Standard Laboratories Shutting Down

I guess October is the month for shutting down websites (New Oink) and closing up shop. GSL Records is citing Tony Wilson’s death (founder of Factory Records, Joy Division, New Order, A Certain Ratio & The Happy Mondays) as a sign that record labels such as themselves can no longer exist in the world. GSL is co-owned by The Mars Volta founder, Omar Rodiguez-Lopez a big influence of GSL’s “no compromise, punk rock” aesthetic. Here are some my favorite tracks from some bands on GSL’s past and present roster:

The Jai-Alai Savant – Akebono

400 Blows – Mortar and Pestle

The Mars Volta – Cut That City

Rhythm of Black Lines – Zama

Jaga Jazzist – Animal Chin
