Alright ladies and dudes – today, something special. Last summer, most excellent fuzz-gazers Kindling laid down their twist on ‘Hate the Police’, a hardcore punk rock favorite from The Dicks, originally released in 1980. With Gary Floyd’s permission, the song was made available digitally, with 100% of the proceeds going to a non-profit organization dedicated to ending police abuse of authority. The track is now available as a surprise release limited lathe-cut* 7″ on Disposable America, with all proceeds from the band’s copies going to the same organization (which has chosen to remain nameless due to the nature of the topic)
There are only 59 of these bad boys (get it? GET IT?) in existence and we got a copy that we’re gonna pass on to a reader.

*for those not clued in to the nature of lathe-cut records, they are cut in real time, one at a time on plexiglass, by a person using vintage equipment. these are not audiophile products, as they contain surface noise and slight distortion. doesn’t get much more punk than that really.
