Sub Pop founder Bruce
Pavitt grew up in the Chicago area, where he was fortunate to witness the
unfolding of the punk/new wave culture of the late 70’s.
Not only did many notable bands pass through Chicago (Talking Heads, Devo, The
Clash) but one of the country’s great alternative record stores, Wax Trax!,
also provided unique access to many of the indie acts that were developing in
both the UK and the US.
In 1979, Bruce Pavitt moved to Olympia, WA to attend Evergreen State College
and to DJ at KAOS-FM. Developing a show around US indie music called
Subterranean Pop, he then started a fanzine of the same name, eventually shortening
the name to Sub Pop. After moving to Seattle in ’83, he pursued his interest
indie music by starting up the infamous Sub Pop record label in 1986,
eventually signing (along with business partner Jon Poneman) Nirvana,
Soundgarden and Mudhoney. The rest is history.
