    This description of the product is from our manufacturer's website:

    "Lathe cut records are made by 'impressing' the sound onto a plastic disc.
    They are cut in real time, by a real person.
    Because of the individual, custom nature of this process, the cost is higher per piece than pressing records. The records I make are mono, and 'embossed' onto plastic in real time. They are not the same as pressed vinyl records. There is an amount of surface noise on these records, similar to that of an old, dirty record."

    Is it possible to present stripped down hardcore punk in an intelligent and refreshing way? Seizure Man is says, "Yeah, we already found it."

    Hradio Signal is a welcome addition to Pittsburgh's extensive math rock and hardcore punk rosters. I think we all can agree that it's been too long for Black Flag, Refused, and Converge not to have created a weird, angsty baby yet. Hradio Signal solves this problem.

    The collective talent in this group is intense, and this album (written, performed, recorded, and produced entirely by the band) is a shining example of what the genres channeled within these songs are capable of. Deceitfully simple, the musical and lyrical content of these songs is honed in with pinpoint precision, while coming off as raw and aggressive. Listening to the two songs on this single is like watching a school of sharks hone in on its prey: belligerent, brutal, and brief.

    This release will be made to order, along with additional copies purchased for band and label. There will be no more than 50 of these created.

about

Ben: This track was one of our earlier tunes. We were practicing one day, John played a crazy beat, and somehow Trevor came up with an awesome bass part to go with it. I improvised some lyrics and they ended up writing a nice downbeat section to go with the other parts. We came up with an arrangement, and I wrote some lyrics for the downtempo section. I later wrote lyrics for the faster part B, and the song was solidified. Lyrically, it's about detachment. So often, we buy/consume goods. A lot of the time we don't take into consideration how those goods were created or even where the parts of them came from. The rabbit is a real life version of that. The rabbit is dead. You're only seeing a picture of a picture of it. it may seem simple overall, but it means something to me.

lyrics

We will never learn why we all get caught up in to these things that we don’t care about
Sleep never comes, because we all stay up, Infomercials all day and night
I won’t buy a thing, unless you doll it up, tell me that it’s pop and I’m alright
Oh it’s kind of cute, that unchanging smile, comfort we with that lie

AND, We will never learn why we all get caught up in to these things that we don’t care about
Sleep never comes, because we all stay up, Infomercials all day and night
I won’t buy a thing, unless you doll it up, tell me that it’s pop and I’m alright
Oh it’s kind of cute, that unchanging smile, comfort we with that lie

And, I’m, In, Total disbelief that there’s anything wrong
With, The way that I view this, beautiful, made, for, me, world
It’s, Not, a filthy, rything rotting beast at all, It’s just
a well groomed decoration, that’s super cool, makes the room, look so good, I don’t
Care, Where, it came from, or how it’s made, I
Just want the product, to be cheap, and I insist it’s not a
Dead, rabbit, at all, it’s just a picture of a picture of
One, which, then, helps me detach myself from the fact that it’s a
Picture
of a dead rabbit
Picture
of a dead rabbit
Picture
of a picture of a dead rabbit!!!
