SYMPATHY FOR THE RECORD INDUSTRY
SYMPATHY FOR THE RECORD INDUSTRY (also known as Sympathy Records or Sympathy 4 the R.I.) is a mainly independent garage rock and punk label formed in 1988 by record industry anti-mogul Long Gone John. The first Sympathy release was the Lazy Cowgirls’ album “Radio Cowgirl” LP, which Long Gone John said he released as a “favor to the band.” Sympathy has a catalog of more than 750 releases, and is based out of Long Beach, California. The label’s name references The Rolling Stones’ song “Sympathy for the Devil”..
Notable artists who started on Sympathy and went on to gain mainstream success include The White Stripes, Hole, and The Electrocutes (the first Donnas incarnation)..
Long Gone John is the owner, CEO, and seemingly the only employee of Sympathy. He is an avid record collector, with more than 10,000 records in his collection. He also owns Necessaries Toy Foundation, a company that creates 18-24 inch figures. Long Gone John also operates Sympathetic Press, a book publishing company that prints books with rock ‘n’ roll themes.
Other Sympathy acts worthy of notice have been Jack Off Jill, Scarling., Miss Derringer, The Muffs, The (International) Noise Conspiracy, The Von Bondies, Rocket from the Crypt, Billy Childish, Turbonegro, April March, The Dwarves, Suicide, The Gun Club, Inger Lorre and Motel Shootout, Man or Astro-man?, The Waldos, The Mystreated, and Redd Kross.
