Lucha Libre Recordings is an independant label based out of Fargo ND specializing in noise and experimental music.
Lucha Libre originated as the brainchild of Brady Daley (of Dwyer) as an 'imaginary' record label for the release of his works under the name Gank Killer, and eventually Andrew Johnson's works as Univac. Releases usually consisted of one or two copies with variable artwork.
Lucha Libre as a label with releases formed in 2000 in Fergus Falls MN, as an outlet for the recordings of D-503, who released a number of solo albums as well as collaborations and splits with Jason Campbell, Vok, Anaphylaxis and Andy Kisaragi. Eventually the Lucha Libre website
shut down due to hosting problems, D-503 moved to Fargo and Lucha Libre Recordings was abandoned.
Andrew continued to record on his own as D-503 for a time and in 2002 recorded an album with Brady Daley as Dwyer. Later that year Andrew and Castle Danz formed the harsh noise group Manchester Bulge to play at a benefit show. Manchester Bulge was asked back to play more
shows, the lineup changed a couple times and the sound was refined over time. Recordings began to accumulate and Lucha Libre was reformed. Which brings us up to the present.
