Next in Radiograffiti’s release queue comes the very uncompromising final output from Tyler St Clair’s Dispyz project, the Datarunner E.P.
This release has something of a storied history, not because it pays homage to the early 80′s Milwaukee hacker crew the 414′s (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_414s
), but because of the incredible amount of adversity we had to face to make this release possible. Fucked-up tests, strikes by nickle miners in Canada, plating costs being raised by 300%, labels melting on the pressing machines, release parties being cancelled…you name it.
Some call it persistence, we call it stupidity. We stuck with it and it’s finally here, for better or worse. Was it worth it? Well, if you think the world needed a limited, translucent green, lo-fi, Amigacore vinyl dedicated to the golden age of computer hacking like we did then yes, it was certainly worth the migraines and monetary loss.
