Most of the labels we got in touch with were cool and sent us cd's and add's to put ie the zine to fill it out but it wasn't until i got this bio and the one for Revelation that I realised too many band interviews might bore people so i'd decided to place these bio's through out the zine as kind of an "interlude" and for a bit of randomness so i hope it worked.
this bio is exact to the zine minus an up coming releases list that was at the bottom of the page that is out of date so I haven't bothered with it.

Three One G records.

I first discovered Three One G while researching a story on CAMERA OBSCURA for some shitty local magazine i've since forgotten. it was 2 or 3 years ago I think-again memory's a 'lil foggy-but after getting a few of Three One G's releases and then watching their artistic model develop, it fast became a label I could trust to put out uncomprimisingly good music, release after release. so i'm writing this bio as a journalist and an outside observer, but also-and above all else-a fan. because, really, what are we doing in this biz anyway if not looking for sounds and sensations to leave us with stars in out eyes, shit in our pants and ear drums propely pummelled?

Three One G began in 1994 under the direction of Justin Pearson (The Locust, Holy Molar, Swing Kids, The Crimson Curse et al). there first release was a 7" featuring Unbroken's "And" and "Fall On Proverb", which was followed by another 7" of Unbroken guitarist Eric Allen's other band, Swing Kids. after that came a split 10" with Swing Kids and fellow san diago misanthropes SPANAKORZO, and then a creatively packaged picture disk 5! split with The Locust-then just called "Locust"-and Jenny Piccolo.

In1998, Allysia Edwards came on board as a partner. according to Justin and Allysia, they release music that they love, agree upon and-just as important-from people that they respect. as Allysia says, she and Justin, "have to like and appreciate the people as well. I don't like dealing with fuckin' asshole's just because the music's great".
Thus enter's the family aspect of the label. sure, you might not expect words like family from a label that has released albums with song title's like "Just one minute and thirty-six seconds closer to smoke from the crematorium" (Holy Molar), "Joined at the ass" and "Open human head experiments with bleach, lacquer the epoxy" (Cattle Decapitation) as well as extreme cover art with gory shit like charred human corpses (Jenny Piccolo) and skinned, bloody cow skulls (Cattle Decapitation), but family it is. first off, the most obvious: Justin has spent time in The Locust, Holy Molar, The Crimson Curse and Swing Kids-all of which have released records on Three One G. then there's Gabe Serbian's two (or three) timing ways with Cattle Decapitation, Holy Molar and The Locust. also, Eric Allen was in Unbroken and Swing Kids and Chris Hathwell of FESTIVAL OF DEAD DEER has gone on to form Moving Units, one of Three One G's newest bands. and so on and so forth. family, nepotism, incest, whatever you want to call it, Three One G, is a label that has talented friends and keep's em close.

Always prolific, Three One G is currently in the midst of releasing eveyone from Moving Units to Arab On Radar to Quintron to Get Hustle to Holy Molar to Orthrelm, as well as "This Is Circumstantial Evidence", a dvd documentry on Three One G.

But, announcing releases and talkingnews just dates this bio, so we'll move on. Three One G has already laid a tone that rings high with a lot of people-Me included. their jig is dirty, intelligent and hard, and if Allysia's original intention to "document california and the bands that were destroying ears all over the world" still stands, then Three One G has succeeded.
