We decided to start RTR in late 2007 as an experiment.
It was an obvious choice to create a means to broadcast badass punk rock to more people who may crave it, on our own terms.
Neither of us EXACTLY had experience in the production and distribution of vinyl records.
We guessed at what we'd like to make happen and have seen some aspects of our original ideas come to fruition, like 11 records we're super proud of.
Other parts have fallen by the wayside - like we never made that page that explains step-by-step how to make a record... there's a BUNCH of different ways to do it and, honestly, anyone can order up a couple hundred 7"s but it's trial and error that are going to make a GOOD record and we didn't know how to capture that in an essay.
A lot of mistakes have been made and probably we'll make a ton more.
