25 years of punk ethics, chosen family, and surviving the music business. The Fat Wreck Chords story. 

 

SYNOPSIS

A FAT WRECK documents the early history of Fat Wreck Chords, from its founding by Fat Mike and his then-wife Erin Burkett, through its cultural zenith in the late 1990’s, focusing on the most successful bands that shaped the label’s formative years, including Lagwagon, Propagandhi, No Use For A Name, Good Riddance, and Strung Out. Through the highs and lows, Fat Wreck Chords made a deep cultural impact on the music scene; across 157 studio albums and 150 other releases, somehow managing to stay true to its 100% independent ethos.
