Interviews: Scotty Heath of Tankcrimes Records (Part 1 of 2)

Posted by johng on Thursday, January 29, 2015 at 8:00 PM (EST)
Image Scotty Heath is the master of mosh, the prince of pogo, the sovereign of slam dance. As the owner of Oakland’s Tankcrimes Records, Heath has been bringing metal to the punks and punk to the metalheads for ten years. He’s put out records by Cannabis Corpse, Ghoul, ANS, Iron Regan, Night Birds and more. On top of that, he put out the amazing Year of the Dragon 12-inch by Fucked Up. And, even more, he blessed us all with the resplendent, jaw dropping, fun-as-hell Kicker LP.

Well, Heath is continuing his mission. On February 13, 2015, he’s bringing his legion of punk and metal warriors to the kids and staging the “Tankcrimes Takeover” of 924 Gilman where Ghoul, The Shrine, Born/Dead, Brainoil and Connoisseur will all share the same stage -- that is, if it isn’t wrecked during the night.

To learn about the label’s storied history, features editor John Gentile had an extended discussion with Heath. In this first of two parts, Heath talks about the origins of Tankcrimes, physical music and Van Halen.
