Johann's Face Records
Started in 1981 by two men you only need to know as Marc and Gar, Johann's Face redefined midwestern punk rock by releasing a series of huge selling records. Johann's Face scoffing at big money offers, Marc and Gar held steadfast with their ideals and ideas for the future turning down bands such as the Lemonheads, Smashmouth, and a secret double-LP by a little group by the name of Sonic Youth. Johann's Face continues to deliver in your face and melodic punk rock through a variety of channels. Their latest venture: Bucket O' Blood Books in Chicago's Logan Square neighborhood, a retail store peddling vinyl, DVDs, collectibles, and sci-fi and horror books.
