KEXP’s Dusty Henry spoke with Mike Park of Asian Man Records to learn more about the label’s history, the ethos that’s kept it alive, and more.
Mike Park is the only person behind Asian Man Records. The label has helped break ska and punk bands including Alkaline Trio and Less Than Jake. Park recently turned down an offer to have Asian Man Records be bought out by a larger label for $3 million. He’ll instead continue running it out of his mom’s garage, like he has been for nearly 30 years.
KEXP’s Dusty Henry spoke with Park to learn more about the label’s history, the ethos that’s kept it alive, and the bands it’s worked with along the way.
