Three One G is in a sense, a family owned business…and basically a family in itself. I started the label in hopes to better the quality and creativity of things that I was part of, as well as the music culture that I am part of. Three One G quickly developed into a family of artists who were all intertwined, or on the same page as one another. For me, it is the truest definition of family; people who are of the same breed and people who are from the same way of life. In the beginning, I started off by releasing music by Swing Kids and Unbroken, both of which shared a member, and were part of a musical community that I was submerged in. It was something that I was really a part of and more so, something that was obtainable, tangible, and real. Over the years, Three One G has loosely been related to a band that I’m part of, and better known for, The Locust. The relevance that The Locust had to Three One G brought amazing artists into the picture, either through meeting them on tour, musical collaborations, or other various things that The Locust was doing. This really helped to diversify the label and the sounds that it encompasses up to this day. To me, having bands under the Three One G umbrella like Cattle Decapitation, Arab on Radar, Quintron, Zs, Black Dice, Orthrelm, and so on, all makes sense, regardless of how different any artist's approach to music or their sound may be. We could all conceivably tour together, even sometimes collaborate and share members. To me, this is interesting, bringing so many new avenues of creativity, which are things that the music industry in general has since forgotten.
The family members who currently make the wheels spin for Three One G, aside from the actual bands and artists are; Sal Gallegos (who also played in Some Girls, which were comprised of members of other label mates such as The Plot to Blow Up the Eiffel Tower, and Unbroken), as well as myself. Over the years we have expanded, not only musically, but geographically as well. Even though Three One G is below the radar of the who’s who of labels, the bands manage to grow and reach out beyond the label’s grasp, giving a glimpse into the all too interesting underbelly of an unrefined culture. The bands manage to amaze, challenge, inspire, and essentially blow minds. The labor of love here shows sincerity, as well as integrity. The family here is solid, legitimate, and is here to stay.

    Cult & Culture Podcast Episode 15 feat. WT Nelson

    Cult & Culture Podcast Episode 15 feat. WT Nelson

    The concept of Cult and Culture began as a short segment created by Justin Pearson, an internationally known musician, record label owner (Three One G Records), author, and actor. He is best known as bassist/vocalist for bands such as Dead Cross, The Locust, and Retox. Justin has come to know and work with a broad spectrum of captivating personalities and brilliant minds, many of which are key figures in the realm of popular culture and cult followings alike. John Waters was one of the first people interviewed for the project- an icon of both cult and culture. Other guests include a broad scope of musicians, producers, authors, and anyone passionate about what they do. In its infancy, segments were shorter, 10-20 minutes, and would be recorded while on tour. Since then, Pearson has collaborated with producer and musician Luke Henshaw (Planet B, Sonido de la Frontera) to build the idea into a proper podcast, now recorded at Penguin Studios in San Diego. The focus is not intended to be solely on people in any one realm, and because guests are friends and family, the conversations are frank, informal, well-informed and genuine.

    Episode 15 features W.T. Nelson. This fascinating artist and sound scientist has been a part of such noise/experimental/power violence projects such as Bastard Noise, Man is the Bastard, Sleestak, Geronimo, and others, as well as being founder of Trogotronic audio instruments, hand built in California. This episode offers a glimpse into the inventive, ever-curious mind of Nelson, that which inspires him sonically (including flutes), polarizing music (like Steely Dan and GG Allin), and the processes, thinking behind, and future of some of his creations.

    Episode 14 features Robert War and Henry Wallace, two members of the revolutionary and infamous Black Panther Party (San Diego branch) who have been involved for decades. Here, these long-standing members discuss current events and what it means to be a Black Panther in the era of Black Lives Matter, what they consider to be “an extension of” the Black Panthers. Noting the struggles present in nearly every aspect of society, from banks and loans, to police and the president, to American capitalism as a whole, this podcast is essential listening in order to hear the perspective of a progressive, hardworking, and very relevant organization that many have stereotyped and even villainized over the years.

    Episode 13 features Lucien Greaves, co-founder of the infamous yet often misunderstood organization, The Satanic Temple. Known for using unorthodox methods to take a stand in favor of religious equality and separation of church and state (and most often coming out on top), Lucien discusses the founding of the Satanic Temple, project Grey Faction, how the Satanic Panic of the 1980s deeply affected him, and how to take on news outlets/interviewers who aren’t prepared to be proven wrong. Deeply insightful and quick-witted, the conversation delves into religion as a whole, pseudoscience and malpractice, bias, and the need to rebel against that which is oppressive in society.

    Episode 12 features David Scott Stone, a musician who has been a member of, collaborated with, or toured in an eclectic catalog of bands such as The Melvins, LCD Soundsystem, The Locust, Unwound, Fantomas, Jello Biafra, Get Hustle, and others. Known for his homemade or self-modified instruments, SirDSS (his moniker) creates wonderfully experimental music with great enthusiasm for gear and the technicalities of music, which is highlighted in his conversation with Cult and Culture’s Justin and Luke. Just as much so, his affinity for astrology, articulate nature, and all-around kindness is evident as the trio discuss anything from old memories of Southern California punk scenes to expanding musical futures and searching for sincerity in art.

    Cult and Culture Podcast Episode 11: Jason Hamacher

    Cult and Culture Podcast Episode 11: Jason Hamacher

    Episode 11 features Jason Hamacher (drummer of Regents, Frodus, and Combatwoundedveteran, among other bands). Jason’s experience in music, as well as his Christian beliefs, have lead him to many unlikely adventures and research including finding himself working in Syria with the ancient Aramaic speaking Syrian Orthodox Church, and collaborating with the Smithsonian. If punk, Christian, and academic aren’t adequate enough adjectives to describe Jason, he is also a licensed massage therapist. Mix all of these unlikely backgrounds together, and you’ll find a hilarious, refreshingly open-minded conversation that somehow always finds its way back to hardcore and punk ideology.
