About this project

$800

When Hurricane Sandy barreled her way up the East Coast, the folks at Norton Records felt her wrath as much as anyone. The flooding that came after the storm inundated the Brooklyn warehouse of this amazing rock-n-roll label, and destroyed nearly every bit of their inventory & label stock, and nearly sank their 30+ years of hard work and dedication to documenting and shining the spotlight on the most unsung heroes of early rockabilly and rock & roll.Because of Norton Records, performers like Esquerita, Link Wray, Hasil Adkins, and so many more, were not allowed to simply fade into obscurity....

This Kickstarter campaign is being put together to create and fund a run of T-Shirts and Posters, which will accompany a Texas-sized show and fundraiser that we're throwing in Austin, Texas. The show itself, called "For the Love of Norton" will ultimately assist Norton Records' Billy Miller & Miriam Linna in their rebuilding process.

As you can see, the reward premiums vary from "For the Love of Norton" posters and t-shirts, to "Teen A Go-Go" DVDs, original Link Wray & Sonics posters, to signed posters from Davie Allan and James Burton, and more!

Thanks in-advance for your pledges to help get these shirts & posters made, and remember.... "You can't drown the Loud Sounds of Norton Records"!
