calvin johnson never meant anything to me
Students for Scarves and Charm presents a long over due tribute to K Records, DIY independent music label founded by Calvin Johnson (of Beat Happening, Cool Rays, Dub Narcotic Sound System... he's been in a lot of bands, OK?) with the motto: "Exploding the teenage underground into passionate revolt against the corporate ogre since 1982."
Though K Records has been home to a diverse range of artists from Modest Mouse to Beck to Built to Spill, we will mainly be focusing on the label's twee bands such as Beat Happening, Heavenly, Talulah Gosh, The Softies and Tiger Trap who have inspired a new generation of sensitive kids in anoraks and cardigans to make ramshackle and catchy pop music with their hearts on their sleeves and caught in their throats.
But that's enough from us, hear Jeffrey Lewis explain it all in his song Low-Budget Documentary On K Records here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CoMdq7k7Fo
