In 1980, Stephen McGowan’s cousin Ross visited him in the US, bringing with him a collection of revolutionary singles from Scotland, including classic Buzzcocks. Hearing those records changed Steve’s life…. After meeting through an interstate high school Model UN, Cuban delegate Steve sent PLO representative Adrienne Meddock mixtapes loaded with these singles, hooking her, changing Eventually, Meddock joined Steve’s band, The Beef People, and together they started Zub Records, an Indie music production company that booked a weekly national touring new music showcase in Greenville, SC, ran a sound reinforcement company, and published a monthly ‘zine, Zub Alert, promoting it all. After an intensive musical and personal partnership through the 80s, Meddock and McGowan parted ways in the early 90s. Steve has remained active on the music scene in Greenville, especially in live sound engineering. Adrienne has been active in the area of intellectual property studies. Now, on the heels of what they have termed “a quarter-century palate cleanser,” they have resumed their musical partnership and are eager to talk with each other and their listeners about the records they love. They have started the Singles Going Steady Podcast to explore wonderful tracks from their favorite bands. They will share their lifelong passion for all things Zub (their friend’s neologism for super cool) and hope you will listen and find the enthusiasm contagious.
