Company history[edit]

A label for collectors[edit]

Mutant Pop Records was a single person operation, a so-called "shoestore label", begun in April 1995.[1] Signing all his releases T. Chandler, Timbo Davenport 'set out to create a collectible series, featuring a uniform design, drawing inspiration from labels of the 70s,'[2] while issuing limited runs of colored vinyl.[3][4] The label had an estimated 100 releases including vinyl EPs, full-length CDs, and several waves of a short-run CD-R mail-order series.
