There’s not a lot of fanfare. No major celebration. I had contemplated orchestrating something, but perhaps low-key is for the best.
Happy 20 Year Anniversary to Upstarter!
There are so many people I’d like to thank for their help and support over the years. None of this could have happened alone.
A very special thanks to Mike Park and Asian Man Records, who believed in my Web Zine when Web Zines were barely even a thing. Thanks to all the labels, bands, authors, and review writers who have supported Upstarter in one way or another through the years. There have been so many:
Asian Man Records, BYO Records, Jump Up Records, Epitaph, Hellcat, Fat Wreck Chords, Hopeless Records, Hannibal’s Records, Go Kart Records…
The list is exhaustive. I’m sorry for not thanking each and everyone of you in person, but please know how important you are to me, and how much I appreciate the support.
Labels, bands, friends worldwide, thank you!
