The Giant Peach was created as a means for independent labels and artists to produce their own line of garments and distribute it to the masses. In May of 2000, the Peach expanded to the web. The Giant Peach also began to carry the clothing lines of popular design artists and collectives, mainly from local designers and friends in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The mission of the Giant Peach is to create a bridge between artists/labels and fans by:
- Selling music & merchandise which might otherwise be unavailable
- Providing web & tour support to artists
- Introducing new clothing lines and artists
- Posting artist news, interviews, tour information & community events
Many thanks to: Quannum, ABB & Dilated, Hip Hop Slam, Ledisi, Live Human, Stones Throw & The Coup who were the first artists/labels on the site. Thanks to Pinnacle for showing us the ropes. Thanks also to Remix Magazine & Hieroglyphics who continued to employ us while we were getting off the ground.
