Household Ink is a little record label with a few big ideas. It started out in 1987 as the in-house label for the new music combo Headless Household. Now, Household Ink is also a growing, thriving micro-conduit for assorted groups, including Julie Christensen, Shelly Rudolph, Jeff Elliott, Dudley, Nate Birkey, flapping, Flapping, Joe Woodard, Cara Tower, Brad Dutz, Richard Dunlap, Lean-To, Brad Rabuchin, Fringe Deities, and Jennifer Terran.
Ideas are flung about. Genres stretch--new music, folk, rock, jazz, and an operative otherness. Forward motion is valued, as well as thinking in a sideways fashion. Somewhere, amidst confusion and polyism, come little moments of clarity and potential humor.
