Favorite Labels of the 90s

512 Favorite Record Labels of the 90s


Release year

Our patrons join us to discuss their favorite record labels of the 1990s, including Touch and Go, Estrus, Revelation, Lookout, and many more

Author & Special Guests

Instead of tackling an individual label for this roundtable, we decided to invite our Patreon patrons on the show to discuss some of their favorite record labels of the 1990s. While many started out with a narrow musical focus, some evolved and expanded their roster of bands, while others stay true to their original mission. We talked about the pop-punk of Berkeley, CA's Lookout Records, the New York hardcore of Revelation, the garage punk of Bellingham, WA's Estrus Records, the post-punk of Chicago's Touch and Go Records, and many more.
