Burger Records

Sean Bohrman and Lee Rickard own and operate the truly excellent Fullerton, CA based record label and record store Burger Records.  Founded in 2007, Burger Records has released over 300 albums mostly on cassette from artists including Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, King Tuff, The Black Angels, OFF!, The Lees of Memory, Jeff The Brotherhood, The Go, Diarrhea Planet, Milk 'N' Cookies, NOBUNNY, Jaill, The Black Lips, Thurston Moore and Beck's extremely limited Mind Wars collaboration, and countless others.  In addition to hosting their immensely popular Burgerama festival, the label also records The Burger Records Rock and Roll Radio Show live from the store which is available every Tuesday via Podomatic, as well as produce weekly video episodes of BRGRTV hosted on their YouTube channel.  This year, Sean and Lee launched Weiner Records, a distribution arm and subsidiary of Burger Records where the label will manufacture, promote and sell cassette releases by any band not on the Burger roster.  This is Sean and Lee's Fidelity High:  Iggy and The Stooges // Raw Power // Columbia Records // 1973.  Sean says "Iggy and The Stooges Raw Power is one of the most influential albums in Lee and I's lives.  When we were in high school we started our first band called The NOiSE! and to get pumped up before our shows we would listen to a copy of Raw Power that I duped on a cassette in my 90s Ford Thunderbird that we dubbed 'The Stooge Mobile.'  Now, 20 years later, Iggy Pop knows who we are and I texted him 'Happy Birthday' and he replied 'Thanx Sean' - my life was complete at that point :-)"
