Man's Ruin Records war ein von 1994 bis 2001 aktives Label aus San Francisco, das unter dem Slogan Empty Pleasures and Desperate Measures since 1994 etliche Vinylsingles und 10"s herausbrachte.

Geschichte

Man's Ruin Records war das zweite legendäre Label (nach Rise Records) des aus San Francisco stammenden Künstlers Frank Kozik, der hier seine Lieblingsbands, meist auf Vinyl und mit von Kozik designeten Coverartworks, herausbrachte. Die erste Veröffentlichung von Man's Ruin, die 10" „Delta 6“ von E.A.R., erschien 1994. Man's Ruin wurde von Mordam Records vertrieben, bis 2000 Frank Kozik zum Vetrieb RED Distribution für die USA und zu House of Kicks für den internationalen Vertieb wechselte. Durch den Vertriebswechsel, aber auch durch den Dot-Com-Boom in San Francisco, durch welchen das Man's Ruin sich ein anderes Büro suchen musste, wurde das Ende des Labels eingeleitet. Im September 2001 ging das Label pleite, gab alle Rechte an den Aufnahmen an die Künstler zurück und stellte das Musikveröffentlichen ein. Frank Kozik sagte dazu: "Schieb es auf eine Verkettung von Fehlern, Pech, den falschen Immobilien-Boom in San Francisco, die hohen Steuern oder die derzeitige Vertriebsmisere... such Dir was aus."

Man's Ruin war ein Label ohne festes Bandroster, das hauptsächlich 7"s und 10"s veröffentlichte. Etliche Platten des Backkatalogs gelten heutzutage als absolute Raritäten, z.B. die 7" von Gamma Ray oder die frühen Desert Sessions 10"s, die bei Ebay horrende Preise erzielen. Mit den Bands wurden nur mündliche Verträge geschlossen; der Gewinn wurde zwischen Label und Bands 50:50 geteilt. Die Verwertungsrechte an den Aufnahmen waren für 2 bis 5 Jahre an Man's Ruin lizensiert und fielen danach an die Bands zurück, sodass diese ihre bis dahin häufig ausverkauften Singles neu veröffentlichen konnten. Neben dem von Kozik designeten Artwork bestechen die Schallplatten oft durch farbiges, gar marmoriertes Vinyl und die CDs durch ein Corporate Design des CD-Rückens.

Die noch erhältlichen Man's Ruin-Veröffentlichungen werden in Österreich über Trost vertrieben.
