Details

Billy and Miriam were later married, and still later formed the Norton Records label. The label has proven to be one of the most enduring independent rock labels in history, issuing and reissuing countless rock 'n roll obscurities from both well-regarded and unknown artists.

In late October 2012, Norton's Brooklyn warehouse was flooded by Hurricane Sandy, destroying over 30 years of vinyl releases and printed matter. The label has been struggling to continue, but is starting to make a comeback with a vast army of analog loyalists cleaning records and hosting benefit concerts.

To contribute to the comeback, Desert Island has reprinted the impossible-to-find Kicks Magazine #1 as a donation and fundraiser for Norton. The 100-page book contains tons of great articles about the Shaggs, Everly Brothers, Flamin' Groovies, and many others. A crucial text about the secret history of rock and roll!
