TVD Radar: A Fat Wreck, The Documentary About Fat Wreck Chords

VIA PRESS RELEASE | A Fat Wreck: The Punk-u-mentary, the music documentary film about the influential California punk label Fat Wreck Chords is out today on iTunes, Amazon Video, Google Play, Vimeo On Demand, and Blu-ray/DVD via The Orchard and Something Kreative.”

“A Fat Wreck is a successfully crowdfunded music documentary that premiered at Dallas International Film Festival. It is the first to feature puppet reenactments and was produced by open-ended films and directed by first-time director Shaun M. Colón. Film Synopsis: Fat Wreck Chords… The influential music label proud to say they’ve spent the past 25 years “ruining punk rock.” A Fat Wreck tells the story of founders Fat Mike (of the legendary punk band NOFX) and his ex-wife Erin Kelly-Burkett, spanning the birth, growth, struggles, and survival of the Fat Wreck Chords label.

Half inspirational story of chosen family and community, half debauchery and occasionally involuntary drug use… A Fat Wreck blazes exciting new ground in the cinematic genre of puppet-driven punk rock music documentary filmmaking. If you only see one film featuring a dominatrix spanking a puppet in your lifetime… Make it A Fat Wreck!

About Fat Wreck Chords: Fat Wreck Chords is an independent punk rock record label founded in 1991 by “Fat Mike” Burkett and his then girlfriend, future wife, and further-in-the-future ex-wife Erin Burkett. Over the past 25+ years, Fat Wreck Chords has put out over 150 albums and 300 total releases, selling over one million records per year at its peak.

A hugely influential part of the pop-punk explosion of the late 90s/early 2000s, Fat Wreck Chords brought punk music to larger and larger audiences through a hugely successful mail-order operation and a series of “Fat Music” label compilations.”
