Armageddon Records
Craig Silva

Why pay for music when you can illegally download it for free?
I used to be in bands. Plus, I have a nice stereo at home, so it's nice to play vinyl on it.

For that matter, why pay for a zine when the Phoenix is free?
I'm not really into zines, I guess. I do read the Phoenix, though. They do sell a lot of zines here. I have some friends who are super into those.

Cassettes were about to come back in style. Then they didn't. WTF?
I just started a small label, and we almost exclusively sell cassettes. They're just so cheap.

Awesome! Except nobody besides me has a cassette deck.
It's sort of like vinyl. A lot of kids who collect vinyl don't have a record player. It's a collection thing.

React to this statement: vinyl is overrated.
I don't think so. I spend a lot of money on vinyl. There's something about the fact that it's physical, as opposed to digital, when books, movies, music, and social interaction aren't physical as often as they used to be.
