Fiercely DIY label, Plan-It-X Records, will be hanging it all up after next year. Co-founder Chris Johnston explained:
There will be [a Plan-It-X fest] next summer. It will be one of the last big fests before the end of the world. I'm calling it, The End of the World Fest. It will also be the end of PIX records. I plan to release PIX #100 which will be the book, "Free Pizza For Life", the story of Samantha and I stealing pizza and starting a DIY punk label on the day of the fest. The book will come with a DATA DVD with all the PIX music ever released. Why? because I don't want to be a dinosaur. CD sales are dropping like crazy, people don't want them anymore. I know LP sales are up and people love records, but, that doesn't include CDs. Most of all, I set out to start a budget label that sold CDs cheap, so I don't want to tarnish the name of PIX by releasing LPs and selling them for higher prices. I've thought about this a lot and I'm not sad. I plan on starting a new label when PIX is done that releases nice looking, unique LPs, cassettes and comic books.
The label was founded in 1994 and released music by One Reason, This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb, Operation: Cliff Clavin, The Four Eyes, Ghost Mice, Paul Baribeau, Halo Fauna, Best Friends Forever, The Dauntless Elite, Andrew Jackson Jihad, Matty Pop Chart, Heathers, Delay, Paul Baribeau and Ginger Alford, Spoonboy and Against Me!.
