Before the Ipod and bit torrenting Lumpen released a series of compact discs to share music that reflected the underground sounds of Chicago's talented music scenes. Below is a sampling of the CDs that we released. Usually these artefacts were given away at the release parties and have a very limited circulation in local record stores. Many of them are available online somewhere.
