  1. Hi Steve

    I can't believe that you think that DIY is something that was started by punk.

    The Rock-A-Tunes were doing it for themselves in Edmonton, Alberta, back ca. 1958.

    Rockabilly did it way before punk!! ;)

    Cheers,

  2. Hi Steph

    Just to put some perspective on the whole DIY thing, there were independent pressing plants in the US offering custom packages starting around the time of the second world war. A few majors like RCA and CBS did too.

    Meaning that anyone from church or school groups to the local polka king, including lots of country, blues and rockabilly artists, could put out their own record if they could scratch the cash together.

    In Canada, Compo offered custom pressing services starting in the forties. Sparton did too. Over the years there were plenty of others including Imperial (IRC) on the West Coast, who pressed many of the early Vancouver punk records, and World Records in Oshawa, who pressed some of the Toronto punk records.

    People were putting out their own records long before Steve Leckie came around.

    Keep up the good work, and don't drink the Flavor-Aid!

    Cheers,

    Marc
