Shimmy Disc is a New York City-based independent record label founded in 1987 by Mark Kramer. Before it was sold to the Knitting Factory, artists like Bongwater, Daniel Johnston, Fly Ashtray, Galaxie 500, King Missile, Boredoms, Ruins, Ween, Gwar, The Semibeings, and Uncle Wiggly recorded on the label. The label also released compilations albums such as "Rutles Highway Revisited (A Tribute To The Rutles)", 1990, which featured various artists from the label, and also introduced new artists like Paleface.

In 2020, Kramer revived the Shimmy-Disc label in partnership with Joyful Noise Recordings with their first release Songs We Sang In Our Dreams, the debut album of Kramer's project with Xan Tyler, Let It Come Down.[1]
