SST Records

Profile:
SST Records is a record label formed in 1978 in Long Beach, California by Greg Ginn. It was originally an electronics company called SST (Solid State Tuners) Electronics (one of the employees was Black Flag's bassist Chuck Dukowski); Ginn converted it to a record label so he could release Black Flag's Nervous Breakdown EP. The label was a prominent figure in the L.A. punk scene around 1980 and 1981, releasing more albums by Black Flag as well as Minutemen, Descendents, and Stains (3), and has since remained a major symbol of the city's underground culture. SST quickly branched out in its early years to release albums by bands outside of the southern California area, notably Soundgarden, Meat Puppets, Hüsker Dü, Bad Brains, and others.

December 1992 saw the opening of the SST Superstore situated on the corner of Sunset And Larrabee in West Hollywood.

In March 1996, the label moved its operations from the Sunset Strip to Long Beach.

In 2007, the label relocated to Taylor, Texas.
