Ipecac Recordings is an independent record label based in California. It was founded on April 1, 1999 by Greg Werckman (ex-label manager of Alternative Tentacles, ex-lead singer of Duh, ex-employee of Mercury Records) and Mike Patton (Faith No More, ex-Mr. Bungle, Fantômas, Tomahawk, Peeping Tom and Mondo Cane) in Alameda, California.

Originally the label was created for the sole purpose of releasing the first Fantômas album. Currently they also distribute other artists like Melvins, Isis, and other of Patton’s projects and collaborations.

The label is named after syrup of ipecac, an emetic, or vomit-inducing, medicine. Its slogan is “Ipecac Recordings–Making People Sick Since 1999.”
