Where is Stanton Park?
Exactly where Stanton Park is doesn’t really matter. What it is, though, matters a great deal.
While Stanton Park was created solely to release a record the Trodds in 1981, it grew over the next few years into a bona fide independent label releasing records by bands such as: Willie Alexander, the Bags, the Brood, Head and the Hares, Kenne Highland, Medicine Ball, Rising Storm, Voodoo Dolls, World of Distortion and many others.
A small mailorder catalog and this web site quickly followed to help spread the word to enthusiastic record collectors around the world. The focus was vinyl, and for several years, no CDs were listed. During the nineties, the catalog, Vinyl Injections took on a life of its own growing to nearly 1500 titles at its peak.
After 2000, with the general shift to the web, this site took over the entire distributon of the label and non-label mailorder items. And today, our store on Discogs handles all orders.
This site is now dedicated to telling the Stanton Park story, from the bands, to the label to the ups and downs of running a small label.
