The Furnace Room

Name: The Furnace Room
Founded: 1987?
Founder: Steven Mathewson
Location: East Canton, Ohio, USA

The Furnace Room was started and run by Steven Mathewson (aka A Red Cup of Tea), member of 35 Little Ducks in a Basket and co-editor of The Rain magazine. Mathewson's band practiced in the furnace room of their parents' basement, thus the name of the label. Chris Yambar was also involved with art, promotion, and various other ways. John Mathewson and Kris Barnette (aka K.Kjell of The Nonconformist zine) were also involved, with IDY helping out with tape duplication. At some point, Marc Plainguet's Corpqii Productions took over most of the label's catalog.
