An Infernal Racket Production

Audio Recording

Vintage lo-fi analog quarter inch tape & sporadic hard disc mixdown


Basement project studio specializing in budget creation of independent CD's, demos, and copyright-free muzak for corporate voice mail systems.  Relaxed, creative atmosphere.  Owned and operated by a serially-unemployed electronics industry marketeer who started out as technical director and musician of limited talent with the finest unknown psychedellic-era band in Central Pennsylvania.   Infernal Racket Studios uses discarded equipment from the dump to recreate the garage band sounds of the 60's.

Recent Projects

New arrangements of B-side cover tunes plus assorted music by Farson's Rubber Band, Brass Monkee, Much Later, and the world's only genuine Nazz tribute band Fungo Bat. 


Expert studio engineers place microphones for authentic garage band vibe..
