In the early 90’s the punk rock and hardcore community in central Texas, like most places, survived on camaraderie and co-operation. We thrived on the fact that the music was made, shared, and people mattered. You had all of your friends’ music, and they had all of yours. At the time we didn’t know it, but this community would shape us long after. The people that put out records put them out as a way to contribute to the scene they loved being a part of. 1407 Records was formed to give back to a community that gave us so much.
