Record Factory allows music-makers to cut and play records

    the record factory

    Hey kid, so you want to be a rock and roll star? Just get yourself a Teenage Engineering’s PO-80 Record Factory which allows young music-makers to cut and play mini vinyl in “ultra-analog lo-fi.”

    Sell your soul to the company
    Who are waiting there to sell plastic ware
    And in a week or two if you make the charts
    The girls will tear you apart

    The price you paid for your riches and fame
    Was it all a strange game? You’re a little insane
    The money, the fame, and the public acclaim
    Don’t forget what you are, you’re a rock and roll star
