Core Tex Records

Core Tex Records is a punk and hardcore record label based in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin, Germany. It was established in 1988 . Core Tex has become a centre for live music, playing host to a string of in-store live events as well as participating in an annual music festival called Myfest.

Core Tex Records came into being in 1988, starting off as a small record shop run by punks in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin. With its particular status, West Berlin had long been a refuge for punks, anarchists, pacifists and alternative thinkers. It was a means of escaping military service and offered the ability to pursue alternative lifestyles with more tolerance than in other cities of West Germany. Kreuzberg had a long tradition of squatting, with many of the original squats being in Oranienstrasse. The building in which Core Tex Records is now based is also a former squat.
