Larry Livermore of Lookout Records!

Larry Livermore is a punk rock veteran who helped the east bay punk rock scene blaze its way into the mainstream with such bands as Green Day, Operation Ivy, Screeching Weasel, Rancid, and many more. I get to talk to him about his experience of starting the label as well as dealing with the problems behind it. Check out his book "How To Ruin A Record Label"

EP 24 - Why Am I Talking To Myself…? Oh for LLC Minutes 🙄

So, as part of the LLC I need to take meeting minutes as if I am a huge company. Well... I'm not. In fact I'm ONE person and so I'd just be talking to myself. However it's apparently an important thing to do because if you're not acting like an LLC and you're acting like a sole proprietor, then if a problem arises the courts could "pierce the corporate veil" and sue me personally instead of the record label... which is the whole purpose of the label! But anyways, I talk about what happened this week and what I'm planning on doing the next few weeks.
