Q&A with Flesh And Bone Design - Rob Castellon / Wiretap Records Posted 25 Jan 2017

I met Brian from Flesh and Bone Design online a few years ago through his amazing design work and the label he was running at the time. He's done a bunch of design work for me for Wiretap. He recently asked me to answer a few questions for Flesh & Bone Design's Q/A blog. We talk about how Wiretap Records began, the future of radio, CA punk rock, young vs. old DIY culture, & more! Thanks to Brian for asking me to participate. Go follow Flesh And Bone. He's doing some amazing design work. Read the whole feature here!
