Seattle’s Suicide Squeeze Records

Although some national media still reference Seattle’s grunge era when talking about the music scene, lots has happened there since the mid-90s! One reason is Suicide Squeeze records, a hobby label that became much more, and has nurtured the careers of Elliott Smith, Modest Mouse, Pedro the Lion, and Minus the Bear. Founder David Dickerson is known as one of the nicest guys in the business, and The Stranger celebrates the label’s 20th anniversary with a glowing oral history.
