Slamdek A to Z

The Illustrated History of Louisville’s Slamdek Record Company 1986-1995

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Slamdek A to Z is Scott Ritcher’s firsthand account of his independent Slamdek Record Company label which operated from 1986 to 1995. Slamdek became synonymous with Louisville for many lovers of punk and indie rock during its nine-year run. Each of Slamdek’s forty-five release is fully documented in a narrative form with track listings, band rosters, anecdotes, and each band’s history as it pertains to the label. The book is highlighted with more than 250 photographs and contributions from 30 other writers.

This new digital edition also includes links to many of the recordings that allow Apple Music subscribers to listen free while reading.

Slamdek A to Z is a fan’s encyclopedia and a trainspotter’s wet dream.” – Alternative Press

“The label was integral in documenting one of the most creative times in Louisville music history. Slamdek A to Z is both the ultimate extension of the Slamdek philosophy and its crowning moment.” – The Courier-Journal

“The history of this label is an interesting read. You will dig this book.” – Punk Planet

“I’m completely overwhelmed by the detail of it all. If you want to see how a punk scene formed, live, and [was] passed on, this is a great documentary of such. From punk rock field hockey teams to riots, you’ll read about it all.” – Change Zine
