Compulsiv Records was a record label that operated out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

History[edit]

The label was founded by Bryan Dilworth and James Payne.

Dilworth found and signed the talent. Dilworth eventually played in The Lilys and The Gelcaps, became the road manager for Rocket from the Crypt, the booker at Electric Factory Concerts, The Khyber, Upstage, and Upstairs at Nick's, and worked for Clear Channel). In 1995 Dilworth married Kristin Thomson of Simple Machines, another noteworthy indie rock label.

Payne provided all of the initial funding and data processing services for the company. He went on to form the first ISP in northwestern Connecticut (Lakeville Internet) in 1995 before being hired by Oracle Corporation.

After releasing a substantial catalogue in the 1990s, the label gradually vanished.
