In the early 80's, Greg Ginn started the DIY record label SST, as well as the iconic punk band Black Flag. In the decades since, DIY Punk - anarcho-punk, hardcore, peace punk, pop - has flourished in the states and internationally. TNF welcomes UNC creative writing professor, Matt O'Wain who was a touring musician from ages 16 to 31 and in that time picked up hundred of 7 inches and LPs, some of which are one of perhaps 500 copies pressed. Join Matt as he plays and discusses records from regional DIY scenes from the Deep South and Pacific Northwest as well as Chicago. He also plays records from Japan, France, Spain, Mexico and other international scenes.
