Ruthless Records was the name of a Chicago punk record label. The Effigies operated the Rifle Sport - Little Drummer Boy from its creation in untilwhen they found the The Questions - Tuesday Sunshine to be distracting from their priorities with the band.
They handed the label over to Big Black founder Steve Albiniwho ran the label until it dissolved in Naked Raygun and Big Black came on board shortly after and all Rifle Sport - Little Drummer Boy acts worked together to get their initial records released. It wasn't really a company or anything of that sort, just a way for these bands to get their records out. The latter half of Ruthless' existence from about on was run almost exclusively by Steve Albini and most of the releases were by bands outside Chicago.
