Nic Warnock is the founder of R.I.P Society Records, which last year celebrated its fifth birthday with an eight-hour concert at the Sydney Opera House as a part of Vivid. He spends the rest of his time working at Repressed Records and playing in numerous excellent bands. His involvement in the music community started when he moved from Far North Queensland to Sydney’s western suburbs for university where he managed to land a job at his local record store by having the right t-shirt (The Stooges) and began commuting to the city every weekend to attend shows. In 2008 Repressed Records moved from Penrith to Newtown, with R.I.P Society Records pressing its first record the next year. R.I.P Society was voted best Independent Record Label in Mess & Noise’s 2011 Reader’s Poll and has released records by Woollen Kits, Royal Headache, Low Life, MOB, Bed Wettin’ Bad Boys, Half High and Dead Farmers.
