Twin/Tone Records was a record label based in Minneapolis, Minnesota that operated from 1977 until 1994 and helped several local groups receive national attention. The label was born from the Minneapolis punk rock music scene, which included venues like Jay's Longhorn Bar. The label was begun by Peter Jesperson, local music and sports writer Charley Hallman, and Paul Stark.[1] Releases by pop/rock group The Suburbs were both Twin/Tone's first release (1978's The Suburbs), as well as the label's last, Viva! Suburbs! in 1994. By 1984, the label had released 41 records and grown large enough to support three paid staff members, with its biggest-selling records including the Suburbs' debut and the first two discs by The Replacements.[2] Other groups that signed with the label include The Magnolias, Babes in Toyland, Agitpop, The Jayhawks, Poster Children, Soul Asylum, The Wallets, Curtiss A, and Pennsylvania-based Ween. British alternative-rock musician Robyn Hitchcock also released his 1990 solo album Eye through the label.

By 1994, the label had released more than 300 records by 100 bands,[3] and had begun to develop an umbrella relationship with a group of about a dozen smaller, mostly Minnesotan indie labels,[4] including:

In 1998, Stark decided to stop releasing physical product in favor of digital media.[5] The company is currently described as being "in mothballs", only releasing limited amounts of out-of-print material on custom-burned CDs, though some of the more significant material was licensed to Restless Records, part of Rykodisc.
