Happy Birthday Goner Records!

It's Goner Records birthday Charlie Brown!

The Memphis record shop loved by people (and their pets) is turning 6 !

Goner is the label (and later the shop) that launched or sustained some of the very best garage, punk and punk-informed rock n roll music of the 90s and 00's... as well as iconoclast (to garage/punk, that is) elegant pop...

Here is a small photographic tribute.... YOU can wish them a happy one by visiting their website and buying some great music, made in Memphis and elsewhere.

I am in love with these photos! Goner has been a big part of my life since the label was invented. I have never been to Memphis to see the store, but I hope to this year for Gonerfest VII! Awesome stuff!
