Touch & Go On Its Way Out? Scales Back Operations

By Tankboy in Arts & Entertainment on Feb 18, 2009 5:10PM

Time Out Chicago is reporting that Chicago-based Touch & Go Records will officially be calling it quits today, and turn into a catalog house. This saddens us, but between the label's sparse release schedule and recent staff cutback, we can't say we're shocked by the possibility. At least they got to throw a hell of a party before calling it a day!

UPDATE: Greg Kot clarifies the story. T&G isn't going totally away, but it is cutting ties with most of the labels it works with while cutting even more of its staff. No word yet on which T&G / Quarterstick artists will remain active on either label though...
