Anyway Records

Starting in the pre-text world of vinyl records and shiny over-priced compact discs, Anyway Records was founded on the assumption that music is to be found in our own backyards and meant to be cheap and affordable, like the founders themselves. Jerry Wick and Bela Koe-Krompecher started Anyway under the guise of a project for Jerry’s excellent Midwestern band, Gaunt. Jerry left the label to concentrate on Gaunt, and Bela continued to pour hours and beers into the label, working with a variety of bands (mostly Ohio, mostly Columbus) including Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments, Jenny Mae, V-3, and Guided By Voices. Please enjoy!
