Asian Man Records is a DIY record label run by Mike Park. Park started a record label and began releasing music in 1989 under the name Dill Records, with the Asian Man label established May 1996. Some of the label’s releases came from such bands as Slapstick, Less Than Jake, Alkaline Trio, Link 80, MU330, The Broadways, Tuesday, and one of the current bands that I love, Joyce Manor.
