Before there was an Internet or CDs or DVDs or even home computers, there was a revolution in the music industry against the standardization and monolithic grip of the major record labels in the 1980s by independent musicians and labels through the development of self-publishing.

This is that story, as told by the people who made it happen.

The revolution was fueled by technological developments in recording, reproduction and publishing. Artists took music publishing into their own hands. This phenomenon was unique to the 1980s.

Grindstone Redux includes interviews with recording artists & independent label owners.

It also includes rare vintage music videos from the 1980s, biographies and discographies.

How & Why did we create the network of the 1980s?

Where are these people now? And what are they doing?
