Founder, R.I.P Society Records
Nic Warnock is the founder of R.I.P Society Records, member of numerous excellent bands, current co-director of the Sound Summit festival and works at Repressed Records. His involvement in 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 numerous now deceased D-I-Y venues. 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, Circle Pit, Bed Wettin’ Bad Boys, Zond and Raw Prawn.
