Are the colored vinyls more noisy than black like the picture disks used to be back in the 80s?
A neato RSD promo for a band would be that they go down to United Pressing in Nashville and hand-mix
buckets of colored pellets, which then get made into biscuits. If you had a 4-person band, maybe the
drummer mixes black and silver with a few red flecks, the guitar player mixes green, yellow and
orange, the bass player goes with red white and blue and the female singer goes for pink, indigo and
day-glo orange. The could also come up with four versions of the cover, and press 500 copies of
each. Bands may contact me for licensing information! ;)
