Smorgasbord Records started out as Smorgasbord fanzine in 1986 by a hardcore fan named Chris Daily from Stamford CT. After a few issues of Skate Confusion zine, Chris changed the name to Smorgasbord Zine and then he took the magazine to the next level in 1988 with the release of the "X marks the spot" 7" compilation. This release marked the end of the magazine and the beginning of the record label. Chris continued to put out records for the next eight years and then in 1996 he decided that he no longer had the time to continue. Jeff Terranova from Up Front and Chris worked out a deal, and in early 1996 Jeff was the new owner of the label. Jeff continues to run the label as a one man DIY effort and puts out newer unheard of hardcore, punk, and rock acts that he has faith in. The main criteria of the label is that the releases are wholeheartedly liked by Jeff, and that goes for not only the music, but the lyrics and the relationship between Smorgasbord and the band members. The underground hardcore/punk scene was always like a big extended family to Jeff and that's what he tries his best to maintain with Smorgasbord Records. Smorgasbord Records and the underground music scene have given so much to Jeff over the years and doing the label is Jeff's way of giving something back. The label has been the home for such classic hardcore acts as Up Front and Wide Awake and has been a stepping stone for bands like Bloodlet and Hatebreed. A smorgasbord indeed... but not of food, of music. From the straight edge hardcore legends Wide Awake and Up Front to the punk rock 'n roll sounds of the Dead 50's to the hardcore/rock punch of Windfall to the in your face hardcore/punk of Fast Times, Smorgasbord Records continues to stay true to the underground music scene.
