Microcosm Publishing has released Punk USA - The Rise and Fall of Lookout Records. The book is a historical look at the influential California label that first signed Green Day, Operation Ivy, Crimpshrine, and many more before ultimately dismantling in the late 1990s. It is authored by Kevin Prested, who wrote for the official Lookout Records blog and website.
Back in 2012, SPB had a conversation with the label's founder Larry Livermore.
