Cuneiform Records was created in 1984 by Steven Feigenbaum, who after running a successful mail-order music business called Wayside Music for 12 years wanted to venture back into the music label business. During high school, he wanted to work with musicians and started a co-op label which was able to put out about 12 albums before it disbanded.
