Signal Sound Systems Records

Signal Sound Systems Records was established in 1991 in Victorville, California. Signal Sound Systems Records (also known as SSSR for short) got it's name from a combination of Signal Productions (which started in 1983) and the song "Sound System" from ska-punk band Operation Ivy. Signal Productions was created by Greg McWhorter as a means by which to communicate with other area punk rockers and as a vehicle by which to throw shows and put out a fanzine, Disturbed Minds. Signal Productions had started a cassette-tape only label in 1983 called C.U.R.S.E. (Casual Utterances by Really Spiteful Extremists) Tapes which was modeled after BCT (Bad Compilation Tapes -San Diego) Tapes. Greg McWhorter even did the original artwork for two BCT Tapes releases; Tropical Viruses I & II (1985).

Signal Sound Systems Records focused on releasing material by new punk bands that existed around the early 1990s in the Southern California punk rock scene.
