With the Dust Brothers currently putting the finishing touches on their long-awaited album, "The Dust Brothers Greatest Hits," the production duo of John King and Mike Simpson have announced the formation of yet another label.
As part of a joint venture with Mammoth Records, King and Simpson have set up Ideal Records, a company whose ownership will be divided 50-50 among Mammoth and the Dust Brothers, and will allow the new label access to Mammoth's marketing and distribution resources for its releases.
The Brothers already front their own label, Nickelbag Records, which they formed last year and which has already issued its first batch of albums, including Creeper Lagoon's debut, "I Become Small and Go," and "Peach Head" from the Japanese group Natural Calamity.
King and Simpson have also executive-produced the soundtrack for "Orgazmo," the musical-porno movie from "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, which includes contributions from Crystal Method,
Smash Mouth, Atari Teenage Riot, and KRS-One with the Dust Bros.
A release date is still pending for "The Dust Brothers Greatest Hits," but we'll keep you posted.
