Add Lacquer Cut By - Porky (5)
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).
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).
Do not add a studio name unless explicitly credited on the release/ the runouts (e.g. "Primed at Porkys").
