Mass Media Records is a label, print shop and now a fully stocked bricks and mortar shop carrying tons of independent music, apparel, zines, books and all kinds of outsider DIY ephemera. The label started in the early 90s as a way to document the “orange county peace punk” scene which was a group of idealistic punks set into motion by the peace punks in the UK such as CRASS, CONFLICT, and ANTISECT to create their own politically conscious hardcore punk scene amidst a growing trend of violent apathy in the 2nd wave of hardcore in Los Angeles and Orange County. While our release schedule has picked up in the past years we have always been committed to releasing music by bands whose sound and message embraces the Do-It-Yourself Independent spirit and the political ideas that naturally spring from such radical rejections of mainstream conventions. Through the network of label trading Mass Media Records operated as a distro set up at shows selling independently released records for many years and has now grown into a physical store. In a time when music has very much transcended the physical realm we feel that much of the artistry and proliferation of ideas (both aesthetic, poetic, political, or whatever) lies in the physical product of records, tapes, cds, zines and books.
Collector/Horder-isms aside, we would hope that the power that music and words gives us in our daily lives might be relegated to more than a simple file on a device.
