Interview: Larry Livermore (Lookout Records founder) on the current state of the punk scene

As co-founder of the seminal (yet now-defunct) powerhouse label Lookout Records, Larry Livermore was at the epicenter of the groundswell that was the 1990s pop-punk scene. Lookout helped foster the careers of a generation of bands, and brought you music by the likes of Operation Ivy, Screeching Weasel, Squirtgun, The Queers and The Mr. T Experience. Oh, and Green Day.

So who would Larry sign if he were starting his own label now, 25 years after the foundation of Lookout? AMP Magazine asked him just that. Fans of Emily’s Army, Dear Landlord, The Copyrights and The Dopamines, you’re in luck. Click here to read the full interview.

Larry hand-picked the sixteen tracks on “The Thing That Ate Larry Livermore,” a comp being released by Adeline Records tomorrow (May 29th). Click here to see the track list.



The Best Lookout! Records tracks, as chosen by Dr. Frank Portman (The Mr. T Experience)

If you’re of a certain age like some of our more ‘senior’ editors here at Dying Scene, your formative punk listening years were heavily influenced by bands from the late, great Lookout! Records. The Berkeley-based pop-punk label launched the careers of bands like Green Day, Screeching Weasel, The Queers and Operation Ivy before falling on hard times and officially shuttering at the beginning of this year.

To honor the label’s legacy, Spin Magazine caught up with Dr. Frank Portman, frontman for this writer’s favorite Lookout! band The Mr. T Experience, to compile a list of the 20 best songs from the Lookout! catalog. Dr. Frank hand-picked nineteen of the tracks and did a damn fine job (although leaving out Squirtgun’s “Social” borders on criminal neglect). Click here to check it out and get nostalgic!

Some even do it in the form of punk songs!
