Crate Digger An Obsession With Punk Records
By Bob Suren
Bob Suren, known for running his record labels Burrito and Sound Idea, fronting the bands Failure Face and Murder Suicide Pact, and for hosting hundreds of DIY punk/hardcore shows, has compiled together a personal narrative on the obessive habits of a music fanatic’s record collecting – with all the anecdotes, band stories, philosophical insights that the addiction provides.
“A Smal town teenager discovers punk rock through a loaned mix tape and it slowly takes over all aspects of his life. His new passion causes him to form a band, track down out of print records that he loves and begin to reissue them, open a store, begin a record distribution operation as a public service, and to befriend all manner of punk luminaries along the way. Slowly, his life’s pursuit pushes him to the point of personal ruination and ultimately redemption.”
