In the Unlikeliest of Places

Mary Decker

Cape Cod was once home to a thriving punk scene. But, in recent years younger generations have fled to greener pastures for more affordable lifestyles and other young people. There is however one relic from the Cape’s punk heyday.

In the back of a commercial print shop in Hyannis, on Cape Cod, there is a tiny store room packed full of vinyl and CD's. This is where Paul Sunderland runs his internationally recognized label, Give Praise Records. He signs bands from all over the world, but most of the Cape locals have no idea his label exists. And this is not the most surprising thing about Paul Sunderland.
