Christina Gubala and George Jensen (Vacation Vinyl's Pride and Joy)
Christina Gubala and George Jensen run the cassette label Complicated Dance Steps. After working in various corners of the music industry, they decided to combine their experience and resources to start releasing albums from their Los Feliz abode in October 2010. Since founding the label, they have released nine albums and have three more projects slated for Summer 2011. In addition to label work, George mans the counter at Vacation Vinyl in Silver Lake, while Christina serves as the house DJ at Cana Rum Bar in Downtown LA.
Amanda Brown and Britt Brown
Britt and Amanda Brown co-founded Not Not Fun Records in 2004, which to date has released just under 250 LPs, cassettes, CDs, and other junk. Some of their musical projects are things you’ve heard of (Pocahaunted, Robedoor, LA Vampires) and some are things you haven’t (Weirdo/Begeirdo, Topaz Rags, Barrabarracuda, Knit Witch). But their art extends far beyond the audible realm. Amanda makes raw food gems with funny/punny names and writes novels and artsy-smartsy screenplays. And Britt paints ninjas and doodles comics, as well as describing music for the interweb and beyond.
