SST Records

SST Records

Based: Long Beach, California, USA

The most important American hardcore label, founded by Greg Ginn to release records by Black Flag and other local acts, but going on to release ones by some of the best punk/hardcore groups from all over the US. They signed a disastrous deal with MCA subsidiary Unicorn in 1981, and had to resort to the law courts to get out of it. By 1984 one of the most eclectic and wilful of labels, which is why most of the post-1986 releases (most post-1984 releases, actually) are utter shite: they did themselves a great deal of reputational damage by releasing a lot of poor material.

Sub labels: Cruz and New Alliance
