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.
