Following the break of the Sex Pistols in January of 1978 popular interest in punk declined. With this came a reduced interest from record labels and print media. To survive this period of disinterest, which lasted roughly from 1979 to 1991, punk fans were compelled to create a parallel but separate economy to support music. Fan created record labels, radio shows, and zines that supported the scene through the lean years and helped to create a new model for culture commerce separate from the corporate entities that have traditionally controlled the production of culture and taste. This paper seeks to examine how these new entities operated and how they differed from earlier corporate model.
