ABOUT PUBLIC SCHOOL RECORDS
Yes, we are a record label now.
At first (1999ish) we were just a name that Zachary (Coolzey) Lint scrawled or typed onto the photo-copied, scissor-cut covers of burned CD-Rs and dubbed cassette tapes full of indie rock and hip hop home recordings to be shared amongst friends and residents of Iowa City, Iowa.
Around 2004 we began manufacturing a few short runs of vinyl and actual CDs with the shrink-wrap and everything for a few friends (or maybe just The Rhombus and Coolzey) when we had the scratch. Just some merch for tours, nothing more.
In 2009 Public School Records attempted legitimacy of some sort by setting up an office in Fairfield, Iowa. Zach hired Jason Hennesy (Miracles of God, Tuff Jerks) on as full time spiritual advisor. During this time many more albums were released (Bru Lei, Lipstick Homicide, Petit Mal) and the ill-fated (it's an Indonesian porn site now?) psrecords-dot-net existed.
Zach moved to LA to try to make a horror movie and Jason started producing children and the label became slightly inactive around 2012-13. However, in 2014 our friends at Fake Four Inc gave us new life through their Four Finger Distro and we have taken on a queue of new releases.
