History Edit

Early History Edit

Diddly Dank Records was established on August 17, 1979, by Diddlingtonne Danksworth. The company was established by Danksworth, an ASMR Heavy Metal musician, after two decades of failed attempts at trying to find a record company that would sign him. DDR was initially funded by Danksworth's father, Dinkery-Doo Danksworth, a successful lawyer. Danksworth was the first person to be contracted to produce an album for the label. It took 5 years for Danksworth to write an album he felt worthy to release, an album he titled "The Soothing Background Noises of Blood Loss", but two days before the recording sessions were set to take place, he accidentally ingested a near-fatal dosage of toothpaste.
