Matador

Chris Lombardi started Matador in 1989 in his New York City apartment, as you do. The following year, former Homestead Records manager Gerard Cosloy joined Lombardi, and the two of them have run it together since. After flirtations with Capitol and Atlantic, Matador has been co-owned by the Beggars Group since 2002. They’ve established a great reputation for unearthing interesting American acts like Sheerwater, where Talk Talk meets the southern states, as well as Matmos and the wildly eclectic and occasionally brilliant Yo La Tengo.
