About Growler Distro

Growler Distro, or Growler Record Store, are the same thing: a project aimed at selling records, tapes, CDs, CDRs, zines, books, and cool handmade trinkets in Denver, CO, which I'm proud to say is my home. My name is Molly and I've been tabling at punk shows since 2006 and now I'm expanding to a brick and mortar shop at 742 Santa Fe Drive. (Days and hours TBA) I've always loved underground music for it's freshness and honesty and I want you to feel like you can discover a gem as well. I believe that music brings people together much like a well-prepared meal can. And, I think that underground music and literature often talk about the things in life most important to you, whether that be disenchantment with the state of things or a truly broken heart. I carry a lot of different styles of music, so don't limit yourself to one definition of what underground or punk might mean to you. Growler Record Store has music for quiet, contemplative rainy days, dance parties, and even for the apocalypse. I have music made by women, queers, people of color, and in many different languages. You will find your voice as expressed by talented musicians, just the way it was meant to be. And you will likely leave feeling inspired by and connected to your fellow humans. How to find me: growlerdistro@riseup.net and growlerdistro.tumblr.com

    • “what makes a man…” was actually the first thing i came across by the minutemen. it was the late 90’s/early millenium and i think it was a good time for a revival of fucked up sounding music. emo was fading away and straight forward hardcore bands like converge were gaining in popularity. in the poppier camp, fat wreck chords was putting out dozens of NOFX inspired pop punk records to clamoring suburban kids. i liked how raw and fucked up “what makes a man…” sounded. i hadn’t heard such a radical departure from the punk norm before, that is, bass dominant songs with little to no discernible structure. and here it was coming to me 20 years late. the lyrics are potently political and oddly mashed up (just like how he talks in the interview i posted). in short, it pleasantly blew my mind and gave a new kind of punk to rock out to. if nothing else, we can credit mike watt for being groundbreaking in the scene he was in – and extending to today. how many musicians can claim that?
