Founded in the mid's by Mike ParkAsian Man Records was one of the first labels to make its mission to be "nice" and to treat everyone, from bands, to fans, to distributors, with respect and general pleasantness. Somehow, Park's crazy plan to not be a huge douche and to not rip everyone off in sight worked, and Asian Man eventually coagulated into a well respected, almost iconic, record label known for putting out ska-punk and other jams by some pretty nice and creative people. But not only has Asian Man put out records, inspired by labels like Dischord Records, Asian Man Records have enforced the concept of punk being a "positive space" and showed that not all punk is malt liquor and shooting heroin.
