man vagrant is not what they used to be...

"Rich Egan and President Jon Cohen founded Vagrant Records in 1996. The label’s original roots were in punk rock, pop punk, and emo and included artists such as Dashboard Confessional, Saves The Day, The Get Up Kids, and Alkaline Trio."

You have to branch out if you don't want to go bankrupt.

I mean, it's only a "few" labels, right?

http://www.fontanadistribution.com/our_labels.html

And their upcoming release schedule "doesn't" include Macy gray, icp, Phil Collins, Kaiser chiefs, or the bangles.
