Frontier Records

Frontier Records was founded in 1980 in Sun Valley, CA and was one of the first independent labels to document the nascent hard-core punk rock scene of OC and LA (Circle Jerks, Adolescents, TSOL, Suicidal Tendencies) before branching out into other scenes and sounds such as the so-called “Paisley Underground” (Three O’Clock, Long Ryders), alt.guitar bands (Thin White Rope, AMC, Young Fresh Fellows)
 before lording over the vintage punk (Weirdos, Dangerhouse label, Middle Class) compilation market. The importance of the Frontier catalogue cannot be overstated in terms of musical worth or sure-fire catalogue sales as its 30-year history has proven so admirably. Soon to be re-releasing the YES LA silkscreen album and more long out of print punk classics.
