The Sub Pop marker is the middle of the three visible here, between the markers for Father William Sullivan and Gerard Schwarz.
is a medium-sized independent record label based in Seattle, WA. With early releases by Nirvana, Mudhoney, Soundgarden, and TAD, the label is often associated with something called “the grunge movement.” Exploitation of this association has frequently proven financially fruitful. Later years saw record album releases from such moderately-to-somewhat-well-known artists as: Sebadoh, Sunny Day Real Estate, The Murder City Devils, Hot Hot Heat, The Shins, Iron and Wine, The Postal Service, Band of Horses, David Cross, Flight of the Conchords, Fleet Foxes, Beach House, Washed Out, and The Head and the Heart, among many other very talented and deserving artists whose managers will be contacting us shortly about inclusion in the preceding list. Of course, the label is perhaps best known for unintentionally ending the recording careers of such longstanding and excellent bands as Dead Moon and The Jesus and Mary Chain.
