Sump Pump Records was founded in 1998 by Dan Hutchison, Brian Wiksell and Bill Heard. We released a vinyl 7" EP for Why Make Clocks in 1998 and a full-length CD for Chad O'Neall in 2000...then we got preoccupied w/our bands.

Now, it's a 5 way partnership between Dan, Brian, Will Tarbox, Chuck Hoffman & Tom Reelitz releasing records w/a DIY approach, by ourselves and other bands we love.

Track Name: Revolver
Starting off with a slow dance
The room sways with rented lights
Divide the potential dancers
To their own sides of the room
Another Friday night in view
After the set up is over
And I look down on you
What you fail to understand
Is every chord is due
For upsetting you
