Porky (5)

Porky (5)

Real Name:
George Peckham
Profile:
British lacquer-cutting and mastering engineer, better known as "Porky" (as in "a Porky prime cut") with an illustrious career, including work on The Beatles, Genesis, and Led Zeppelin catalogues.

NOTE: Please do not add "A Porky Prime Cut" as ANV.

He started his career in disc cutting as a trainee at Apple in 1968 and his signature can be found in the dead wax/runout grooves of many a rock, punk, post-punk, and new wave record pressed in the UK. Porky would often include cryptic/humorous messages in these etchings, e.g. "you'll never work again" on the A-side of The Fall "Totale's Turns (It's Now Or Never)" (1980).

Studios of his career include: Apple Studios (late 1960s), Master Room (early 1970s), I.B.C. Studios/Portland Studios (1974 to 1984), and Porky's Mastering (since 1984).
