Asian Man Records is a small, DIY record label run by Mike Park in Monte Sereno, California. Park started a record label and began releasing music in 1989 under the name Dill Records, but the Asian Man label wasn’t officially established until May 1996. Park’s departure from Skankin’ Pickle in this same year has been at least partially attributed to his desire to concentrate on putting out records. The label has always been run by the small label, DIY philosophy, with only three other employees (one of which was his mother), two computers, a fax, and a single phone line without call waiting to the label’s name and a coffee machine. Part of their goal is to recruit bands that promote peace and unity, while keeping record prices low to the consumer.
