According to a release by ILD, label vets Lisa Fancher, Mike Beer and Matt Rudzinski took over a failing distributor based in Richmond Virginia and rebuilt it from the ground up.
"Of all the things I never thought I'd do, taking over my distributor is probably number one on my list,” said Lisa Fancher of Frontier Records and Independent Label Distribution. “Loser distributors have burned me for hundreds of thousands of dollars since Frontier started in 1980, so at this point I know what it takes to make one succeed. Mike Beer from Beer City, Matt Rudzinski from Tribunal Records and I share the same DIY ethic and we're not just doing this to save ourselves, we're interested in helping a couple dozen other labels survive after the previous owner was running the company into the ground." - CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
