Knw-Yr-own is a label founded by Bret Lunsford (Beat Happening, D+) in 1987, as an outlet for Anacortes, Wash., area music.

Bret grew up in Anacortes and lives there currently with his family. He operates a book and record store called the Business, which hosts frequent events at the in-house eatery, Cafe Adrift, and is home to a small studio where some of the Knw-Yr-Own recordings are produced. Started initially as a cassette-only label, the first releases on Knw-Yr-own were the series of local compilations Sore Optimists, To Go Nowhere and Too Sore to Move. In its current status, Knw-Yr-Own operates as a loose collective releasing CDs by Little Wings, Nate Ashley, Karl Blau, Dennis Driscoll, Khaela Marricich (pre-Get the Hell Out of the Way of the Volcano). "Shipwreck Day" showcases Knw-Yr-Own musicians.
