This morning we had the awesome opportunity of an office and warehouse tour of Sub Pop. Obviously, Sub Pop is one of the world’s greatest labels, and incredibly important in the history of what the people call ‘indie rock’, let alone North-West/Seattle music. I suppose by now we’ve been in a fair few different record label offices, from the humble to the reasonably flash, but Sub Pop was probably the most exciting we’ve been inside of yet.
Original Black Candy artwork? Sure.
Salvaged wall paper with Kurt Cobain’s address penciled onto it? Of Course.
Mark Arm of Mudhoney working the warehouse? Yuhu.
Carly was our host and was ridiculously lovely and welcoming and GENEROUS. We made off with t-shirts and some CDs, and I got an awesome Postal Service ‘Give Up’ print to be framed and displayed once I’m home. And a great new Nirvana aping No Age t-shirt. The office is covered in band stickers and photo booth snap shots and amazing polaroids. Seriously brilliant. Thank you very much for having us Sup Pop. We shall spend the rest of the year clothed in your bands.
I made it so if you click on the pictures you can see bigger versions of them. See, I’m learning for you, guys.
