  1. Because we like throwing money away, we're putting out a limited to 20 hi-fi-stereo 12" lathe cut of a non-active band's non-active side project. That's right, the sophomore album from Chicago's PINK GUYS is out TODAY on all of your favorite streaming services. We started recording this in 2014 and finally finished it in 2018. Better late than never, right? Anyhow, you can pre-order the lathe cut NOW. It's gonna be a one-sided clear 12" that will sound and look fantastic. Full color art. Full lyrics and root chords in the liner notes so you can play along. Limited to just 20 copies and selling for less than you can buy a run of the mill 12" at your local record store (or hell, even from most record labels these days). No, we are not related to that PINK GUY who gets all the hits on YouTube. And we were around first, so fuck that guy. This is a pop/punk side project from members of Pink Eyes, Engines, Towers, Stillwell, Peter and Craig, etc. etc. Not some dude in a pink suit. 13 songs in 19 minutes. Songs about our cats, our practice space circa 2014, our pure hatred of tonic water (we had a song about how much we love seltzer on our first album), our friends, a nude painting we found in the garbage, etc. If you like pop, punk, or pop punk, maybe you'll like it? I dunno. Stream/buy here (or find it on Spotify, YouTube, etc. etc.): https://forgeagainrecords.bandcamp.com/album/1471 OR https://pinkguys.bandcamp.com/album/1471
  2. Anyone hear of or use this yet? I was burned in the past by the scum of http://www.poly-cut.com/ so I am a bit weary. http://justinlloydcreative.com/piaptk/lathecuts/default.html
  3. Hello Vinyl lovers! I made a record. As a long term vinyl collector and lover, I took the small leap into making my own record, and trying to at least contribute to a culture that I take so much from! So I ventured into it, using the skills I already had and made a short, 7min Hardcore Record about the 80s Action film we all know and love, Lethal Weapon. I had it lathe cut, by lathecuts, limited to 20, of which 15 where put on sale, for £8 here: http://lwXhc.com - and of course I spent a large amount of time making it as nice a product as I could, including little details like black paper sleeves; something most people don't get, but you don't see them very often, and where actually much harder to source than I thought. But I thought it was cool so fuckit! The very nature of lathe cut vinyl is that it is considerably more lo-fi than regular pressings, but it's the only way of doing short runs, and I would thoroughly recommend it to any other people out there who want to do something similar. You can stream it/purchase the digital version at the above link too, and in general I'd love to hear your thoughts.
  4. So I used the fabulous search button here and didn't find a thread for this comparison. If I missed it point it out and maybe the mods could merge it. Anyway I have a friend who wants to potentially put on some music on a small run. Other than a traditional 7" vinyl a discussion came up about the sound quality of lathes vs. flexis. Anyone own both of these? Which would you prefer, and for anyone who has had both made for their label which would they prefer and what would be the difference in cost? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.
  5. Hello, I've recently started offering lathe cut records through http://www.LatheCuts.com. I can make them out of clear polycarbonate plastic squares, laserdiscs, picnic plates, mirrors, etc. My minimum is 20. These are intended to be playable art pieces. They do not sound as good as a pressed record, but are totally listenable. Somewhere between the romanticized click and pop of a dusty record to a light, but constant white noise hiss. Loud, active music covers up a lot of it, drone or soft music has more noise present. Please check http://www.LatheCuts.com for prices and options. More options to come (including round records, if that is your thing). Thanks!
