Our Mission, Should You Choose to Accept It
"Muffin Records is an 'organization' composed of 'several' individuals dedicated to principles. Principles such as the making available of 'Musics'. We firmly believe that it is not merely our right, nor our privilege, but our sacred duty to deliver the fanciest funk available in the least conventionally listenable way possible. We guarantee, with a certainty that is the exclusive domain of the blindly faithful, that we will provide you with high-grade listenables and first-rate jams. Under the deluge of Excellent that issues forth from the mighty Muffin maw, you may even find yourself relenting, wishing for some respite, praying to your feeble God for some pissant boy band to come along and cast your life into proper relief. You shall have none! Look upon our beats, ye mortals, and know that a new era dawns! The Muffin is upon you!"
--Sir Runcible Spoone
THE REAL MUFFIN, also known simply as MUFFIN, is an organization, ostensibly formed as a "record company," which serves as a public interface for the enigmatic artist STYOP QUOONS. MUFFIN handles the distribution, be it digital, physical, or otherwise, of sound recordings, interactive software, merchandise, graphic art, films, fiction, and pretty much anything else, in any medium, that Quoons and his associates might happen to produce.

In more recent years, the organization has diversified into other areas of the arts, including literature, comics, film and video games. In 2010, Quoons began experimenting with Chris Jones' AGS engine and developed the adventure title, The Adventures of Stanley "Frankfurter" Jones, released in 2012. Numerous other titles are in the works. Both Quoons and Spoone have begun experimenting in the literary realm as well, with Quoons completing his first novel, The Fapper in the Rye, in December of last year. His second novel, a yet untitled fantasy/horror story, will be released later in 2013 and will be the first in a longer series of books. Spoone is presently working on a novel as well.
Meet the Staff
Styop Quoons is an enthusiastic purveyor of fine unorthodox entertainment. Alternately described as dissonant and inaccessible, yet frequently catchy and melodic, his music is difficult to categorize. It is a strange blend of punk, electronica, noise, psychedelic rock, and pop, oftentimes flavored with samples derived from cartoons, video games, anime, and other myriad sources with which Quoons has "fed his head" over the years. He has cited as his influences the likes of Frank Zappa and The Residents, both of whom are also known for producing edgy and unclassifiable recordings.
Sir Runcible Spoone is an erstwhile site moderator, Muffin artist, and an integral component of our art department, and also serves as keyboardist during Quoons' live performances. The enigmatic and reclusive exponent of the Post-Listenable movement, Sir Spoone (twice Knightly) has been recording terrible music for as long as he cares to admit. That enough of it to constitute an "album" will eventually be released to the public is a widely believed fact.
