One Question Interviews: Chris Mason

Chris Mason (Dirt Cult Records, Low Culture)

SPB: As somebody who runs his own label, what do you get out of releasing your own records on another label? Is it easier or relieving? What is your preference?

Mason: I started Dirt Cult Records as an outlet to release my own band's music because at the time no one else would, but I'd say that I prefer releasing my bands' records on other labels whenever possible. Though it's really cool to do something like release Low Culture's demo tape the day after we recorded, it's also incredibly neat to have a stack of records show up at your door already assembled and ready to go, and to not have to worry about promoting releases and shipping out hundreds of packages. I'd rather do that sort of work for other bands I'm excited about. Besides, it’s incredibly difficult to write descriptions of your own music.
