About

A division of the Universal Music Group, but one with enough of a presence in the punk and indie scene to merit a seperate mention. Island Records was founded in in Jamaica in 1959 by Chris Blackwell. In 1989 the label was acquired by PolyGram. Though built on releases from mainstream acts like U2 and Bob Marley, the label has garnered much attention in the scene due to their signings of punk/hardcore favourites like Thursday and Thrice as well as hardcore progressives Quicksand, pop-punkers Autopilot Off and metal revivalist Andrew W.K..
