recently posted an article looking back at Epitaph Records
and the evolution of California punk rock. The feature includes background on the label and quotes from people like L7
Little Kings member (and Pirates of the Caribbean
director) Gore Verbinski, Fletcher Dragge of Pennywise
, Fat Mike of NOFX
, Tim Armstrong
, Dave Smalley of Down By Law
and Dag Nasty
Label owner Brett Gurewitz talked off punk rock prior to the explosion of bands like Green Day
and The Offspring
To the rest of the world, we were like Civil War reenactors. "You guys are still doing punk shows? How cute."
