C/Z Records is the legendary Seattle-based label that launched the much lauded grunge phenomenon with the release of the Deep Six Compilation (CZ001) in 1986, a record that featured the first ever released recordings from Soundgarden, Melvins, Skin Yard and Malfunkshun, as well as some of the earliest music from U-Men and Green River (the band that later spawned Mother Love Bone & Pearl Jam). In the fifteen years that followed, C/Z released material from Nirvana, Built to Spill, Melvins, Skin Yard, Presidents of the United States of America, 7 Year Bitch, The Gits, Hammerbox, Love Battery, Moonshake, Coffin Break and Gerald Collier, to list but a few.

The label is no longer actively releasing new material, but much of the music is available digitally, either via download or to stream. Here you can find links to our records and CDs as well as to digital downloads where available. Thanks for giving us a visit.
