None of our parents are from the music business. We had no idea how to make a record. So we just asked one friend of ours who had done -- had put out a record and said, 'How do you do that?'He said, 'Well here's a phone number. Call them.'So we called National Record Productions in Nashville, Tennessee, and they said, 'Just send us a tape and send us a check for $500.'Okay. Got a money order, sent it down there.Then we took a -- it's a 7-inch record; we took apart a picture sleeve from England and pulled it apart to see how it was configured. ...So we just opened it up, we sketched it on an 11 by 17 piece of paper and then we put our own art into that. We just laid it out on there then we took that to a print shop and said, 'Can you give us a thousand of these?'Which the guy ran them off -- in a week we picked them up. 11-by-17 pieces of paper with this weird shaped art and then using scissors and glue, we cut and folded every one of those record sleeves.
That is the way Dischord Records worked for the first 10,000 records. By hand, cut and folded every one of those sleeves.
That my friends is the record industry. That is the true record industry."
