Arkam records was started in Auburn, Alabama, in the winter of 1996. There was a cassette release in 1994 on Bali Records that precedes this. Arkam is not about originality or science - it is a pure, live music, passion-based label, where 90% of the time you just saw the band play a living room or basement, then they sold you a record out the trunk of their car. It is raw and honest music for people who feel the same.
