Label
Polyvinyl Record Co.
The Walker / Back of Dave Split 7" was the first official vinyl release from Polyvinyl, who were then known as Polyvinyl Press -- a zine co-founded by Matt Lunsford & Darcie Knight that documented the local and midwest music scenes. This pre-dated the label's official transition to become Polyvinyl Record Co. with the release of Braid's Rainsnowmatch 7-inch, and the first formal release, the Direction compilation.
