Welcome to G&P Records.com. I wanted to give you a little background about what G&P is, and why I started it. To do this, I need to tell you what it actually means.
During my senior year in high school, I started a fanzine with a buddy of mine, and called it Good & Plenty. We focused on bands that we liked, as well as humorous observations, trends, current events, etc. I put out 7 issues of the zine over the next 3 years, producing up to 2,000 copies each. From there, I actually started a band. Being the original person that I am, we named ourselves Good & Plenty. We would play covers, as well as a few originals. This was mainly something we did to have fun. Our last show we played was on the same bill as Local H.
Here I am using the name again. What is G&P? For me, it is my way of getting involved in helping promote friends, bands, and the love of music. I have been associated with the band Local H for so long, I don't know how to separate myself from them. So, I asked for their permission to press their early recordings. After doing that for a year, I asked if they would like me to sell their merchandise, since I have done it since the 90's at the concerts already.
Lastly, G&P is a place for me to share my creativity on clothing, music, trends and whatever it is that is exciting for the times. It is also a collaboration of friends ideas which may spark more things in the future. One of those ideas will be G&P GraphiX. This is a new line of clothing, which will focus on an old school mentality of Hardcore and Straight Edge. We will be unveiling new items in the 2012. These are my roots. Besides heavy metal, and all of the music that came because of heavy metal, I became involved in the hardcore scene out of high school in the small town of Zion Illinois. From there, I got to see the world because of my relationships with friends and family. I am excited to share my ideas, and if people dig it, that is great.
