Fueled By Ramen Records

About:

"Vinnie, the drummer for Less Than Jake, and college freshman John Janick started FBR in 1996 when John moved to Gainesville, FL to attend school. The unlikely pair had met at a Less Than Jake show a year earlier and decided to combine their talents and contacts to form Fueled By Ramen. FBR was officially born when John and Vinnie released the now infamous take-out sampler in August of 1996. The cassette tape contained songs from various artists and was packaged like Chinese take-out.

Fueled By Ramen's first offices were John's dorm room and Vinnie's apartment. First releases include a number of rare, e-bay worthy seven inches, flexi discs and limited press run cds from bands like Less Than Jake, Bigwig, The Hippos and The Impossibles. In the winter of 1998, John went on tour with LTJ and sold all the Fueled By Ramen releases to date. High sales and an enormous response from fans prompted John and Vinnie to move FBR operations out of their homes and into a "real" office at the beginning of 1999.

Since then, Fueled By Ramen has grown and has released over 50 albums during its six-year existence. " (excerpts from fueledbyramen.com)
