Key Lime Pie Records

About:

Key Lime Pie Records was a record label founded by Geoff Kresge in 1993. It was not actually a licensed record label; it was the garage of Geoff Kresge. Their releases were not sold in stores, but only during concerts. Only three records have been released by this “label” and they were AFI releases. At the time, the band did not have very much money, so in total after all three releases had been made, fewer than 1000 copies had been sold in Ukiah, Berkeley, California and some cities throughout the US on early tours. After all the releases were sold and out of print, the label was abandoned.

Releases:

  • Dork EP (1993)
  • Behind The Times (1993)
  • Eddie Picnic’s All Wet (1994)
