-Glitterhouse Records is a truly independent record label based in Beverungen, Germany. Initially started as a fanzine back in 1981, labelfounders Reinhard Holstein & Rembert Stiewe, two dedicated music lovers, felt that it was time to dare something new: A Record Label. Glitterhouse Records evolved out of the idea to work with some good (but at that time rather unknown) bands and soon they found themselves putting out a compilation cassette called "Battle Of The Bands" as their very first release and continued to publish (preferably) vinyl releases by a few Sixties-Garage Rock, Psychedelia, Punk, and any other band that eventually matched their taste in music. Due to the fact that Glitterhouse Records dealt (and still is dealing) with a lot of so called hard-to-come-by bands and hard-to-get records, Reinhard & Rembert decided to open up the Glitterhouse Mailorder, that soon became a full time job for everyone involved.+It started as a fanzine, in 1981. Deep in the middle of nowhere, in a hick town in Germany, two music lovers, Reinhard Holstein and Rembert Stiewe, dedicated a lot of their spare time to Sixties-Garage Rock, Psychedelia, Punk, the Paisley-Underground and whatever was leftfield enough to match their taste in music. Soon after, Glitterhouse was a record label, too. And a mail order. And suddenly, in 1984, [b][url=http://glitterhouse.de/]GLITTERHOUSE RECORDS[/b][/url] became a profession.

-1987 saw the start of a license cooperation with the Seattle based SUB POP label, which chose Glitterhouse Records to be the home for such acts like MUDHONEY, TAD, THE SCREAMING TREES and AFGHAN WHIGS just to name a few. Needless to say, the label almost single-handedly brought the grunge phenomenon to the European world. Somewhen around that time Glitterhouse Records even took care of some selected releases by the Minneapolis based AMPHETAMINE REPTILE RECORDS, being responsible for acts like the (in)famous HELMET, TAR, COWS and CHOKEBORE. However, after SUB POP got bigger and more notable, not only because of releases by a band called NIRVANA, it got taken over by the Warner Brothers Music Company and so the license cooperation to Glitterhouse had found its end. The business relations to AMPHETAMINE REPTILE RECORDS stopped in the mid 90s as well, so Glitterhouse Records decided to concentrate on their own signings again. Two magical words pop into mind: MONSTER MAGNET. Glitterhouse Records proudly released their first self titled full length album “Monster Magnet” (GR 0123) in 1990, as well as “25…Tab” (GR 0158), “Spine Of God” (GR 0172), and a 7”/CDs named “Evil” (GR 0204) in 1992. 
-Over the years a plethora of upcoming and already established artists recorded for Glitterhouse Records. With more than 650 releases in 20 years Glitterhouse Records now celebrates its 20th Anniversary with a re-release of their groundbreaking compilation-output “Declaration of Fuzz” (GRCD 666) in 2006. Still going strong, Glitterhouse Records is one of the few independent labels that can exhibit an outstanding artist–roster, being the home of THE WALKABOUTS, (the now defunct) 16 HORSEPOWER, WOVEN HAND, (early) MONSTER MAGNET, FRIENDS OF DEAN MARTINEZ, (the now defunct) MIDNIGHT CHOIR, STEVE EARLE, BUTCH HANCOCK, WILLARD GRANT CONSPIRACY, HUGO RACE, SAVOY GRAND, SEACHANGE, TRANSMISSIONARY SIX, WHITE BIRCH, LAMPSHADE, PERE UBU, BIG BANG, MICHAEL WESTON KING, just to name a few. 
-ORANGE BLOSSOM SPECIAL OPEN AIR FESTIVAL 
-Knowing that music’s way more than just sales figures and license agreements, the fine folks at Glitterhouse Records are always busy with organizing the annual ORANGE BLOSSOM SPECIAL open air festival in their very own headquaters' backyard.
