Teenage USA Recordings
The label, based in Toronto, has released records by artists such as Elevator, Eric's Trip, The Weekend, Pecola, Gaffer, Smallmouth, Peaches, Stink Mitt, Dan Bryk, Kid Lunch, Thanatopop, Cecil Seaskull, Two-Minute Miracles, Lonnie James, Blood Meridian, Solar Baby, Robin Black, The Zoobombs, The Exploders, 122 Greige, The Killer Elite, Neck, and Mean Red Spiders.
Song Corporation bought into the label in 2000 and named Klygo and DiPietro as Song's Directors of Artistic Development. Following Song's bankruptcy a year later, the pair regained ownership of their label and signed a distribution deal with Outside Music. Shortly thereafter, DiPietro took a job at Outside, running their in-house label in addition to teenage USA. Klygo took over as Festival Director at Canadian Music Week, as well as starting a new experimental gallery-salon space with artist Germaine Koh called (weewerk) that eventually became a record label.
