“SUPREME STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

“1. CULTURE IS CONTROLLED BY LARGE CORPORATIONS. IT IS BLAND.

“2. SUB/POP COMBATS THIS BY SUPPORTING INDEPENDENT SYSTEMS OF EXPRESSION: CASSETTES, RECORDS, PUBLICATIONS, VIDEO, PUBLIC ACCESS CABLE TELEVISION, WHATEVER.

“3. WE ARE VERY BIG INTERESTED IN REGIONAL TRENDS, MOVEMENTS, IDEAS, SLANG, RECORD LABES, WHAT HAVE YOU. WE ARE VERY BIG INTERESTED IN SMALL COMMUNITIES THAT AREN’T BIG TIME LIKE IMPORTANT N.Y.AND L.A.

“4. A DECENTRALIZED CULTURAL NETWORK IS OBVIOUSLY COOL. WAY COOL.

“5. IN ORDER TO HELP FACILITATE REGIONAL SOUNDS AND IDEAS, WE ALTERNATE (QUARTERLY) BETWEEN A C-60 CASSETTE COMPILATION AND A PUBLICATION. OUR NEW ADDRESS IS BOX 445, OLYMPIA, WA. 98507. IF YOU WANT TO SEND US LOTS OF MONEY WE WON’T STOP YOU. SUBSCRIPTIONS ARE 10.00/YEAR FOR 2 TRANS-REGIONAL CASSETTES AND 2 PUBLICATIONS. WE LIKE TO TRADE TOO, SO SEND US YOUR PROJECT.”
