TERRITORIES: Short Seller: CD Record

May 27, 2020

The innovators at Pirates Press are always showing off the new formats they’re capable of producing. This one was new to me. It’s called a CD Record. It’s the size of a CD, but with grooves and a small foam adapter, making it playable on a turntable. This release is printed on clear polymer, but CD Records can also be printed on black polymer. The printing can be done on the groove side, within the diameter of the grooves, or on the other side, using the full diameter of the disc. CD Records can hold approximately two minutes of material. This CD Record has one track, “Short Seller,” a catchy tune from Calgary’s kings of anthem-driven streetpunk. It’s a cool song, pressed with fittingly nifty technology. –Art Ettinger (Pirates Press)
