Of her stint as receptionist at Sub Pop in the 90s, Megan Jasper says, ‘I knew everything that was happening all the time… the good, the bad, and everything in between’.
Over 20 years later, and now vice president of the label, Megan spent an hour with me last week to discuss all manner of Sub Pop-related business. From getting in the door as ‘a crusty punk with a big ass mohawk’, to surviving and learning from the best and worst moments of the label’s history. Discover which band was so explosive on stage that the owner of the Seattle club in which they were playing took it upon himself to risk his own livelihood to lock everyone in past curfew, thus keeping the police out. And which legendary 90s frontman had the nickname ‘Chemo Boy’ at school?
Find out in this, the New Noise Sub Pop Special podcast, which also features 10 incredible songs picked by Megan herself from Sub Pop’s past, present and future.
