The origin of Some Ware: In September of 2015 Cali went to go see a band called Purity play a show in Los Angeles and on the spot said to the band, “If Brendan and I start a new label to put out your record, could we put out your record?” Cali and Brendan had never discussed this before but the band said “Yes” and Cali texted Brendan the next day to tell him. The ensuing conversation quickly evolved from “hope this was okay… ” to what would the label be called — Some Ware — to a consideration of what else could happen with this new thing. The original idea was just to put out this one record, but Purity came into the picture at a very interesting and exciting time, so many friends working across different formats, many of then in LA, and all the rest visiting increasingly more often. Some Ware could publish a recording but also it could host people in a space, at a location, and maybe even that location is the body of someone they didn’t know yet.
Two and a half years later Some Ware is an evolving format for Brendan and Cali to publish records, mix tapes, events and clothes by and for their friends, colleagues and anyone curious anywhere.
