Synopsis: For twenty years, Merge Records has remained true to their belief that you can sign bands because you love their music and respect what they're trying to do. As giant corporate labels struggle for survival, Merge has, in the unlikeliest of times, garnered a loyal group of artists and a secure and growing fan base and, most important, has brought us some of the best music of our time. Merge Records defies everything you' ve heard about the music business and the fact that the company is prospering in a failing industry is something of a miracle.

In celebration of their twentieth anniversary, Our Noise tells the story of how Merge did it and continues to do it, through the eyes of cofounders Mac McCaughan and Laura Ballance, their fellow band members, friends, and the bands who signed on with them. It includes interviews with and profiles of Superchunk, Butterglory, Neutral Milk Hotel, Lambchop, Spoon, the Magnetic Fields, and the Arcade Fire.

About the Author: JOHN COOK is a reporter for Gawker Media and has worked for Radar magazine and the Chicago Tribune.
MAC MCCAUGHAN plays in Superchunk and Portastatic (guitar and vocals), and founded, with Laura Ballance, the Merge Records label in 1989. He lives in Chapel Hill with his wife and children.
LAURA BALLANCE plays bass in Superchunk and with Mac McCaughan formed the Merge Records label. She lives in Durham with her husband and daughter.
