DNRC Records was a Tribesco-based recording label founded, administered and later abandoned by Davey Dreamnation. The acronym DNRC stands for Davey's New Record Company, meaning that the full official title of the label is actually Davey's New Record Company Records.


Davey Dreamnation's debut album Islands In the Stream of Consciousness was released online in 2002. Although the album's arrival met with little fanfare at the time, Dreamnation's subsequent musical efforts were so seething that the United Nations was forced to enter into treaty negotiations with him.

The end of the negotiations coincided with the proclamation of UN General Assembly Resolution DDN01, which stipulated that Dreamnation was free to release his own music, on the condition that he did so under the DNRC Records moniker, and that he instantly deleted each catalogue number on the moment of its release.


A total of over 100 DNRC Records releases/deletions have now been identified, from artists including Dreamnation himself, his former band The Spirit Levels, Mead, Eyna, Christy Burr, Stung, Clint Bo Dean, Scaramouche and many others.

Due to administrative errors many of Davey Dreamnation's singles were never assigned a catalogue number. The following chronological list should be considered as being definitive.
