An anti-record is a musical vinyl record which has been treated (melted, drilled, painted, etc.) so that it becomes a noise record.[citation needed] While this term was first used by Laylah Records on conventional vinyl releases by Current 93, Nurse With Wound and others, Ron Lessard of RRRecords applied the term to a series of physically altered records released by RRR in 1988. Anti-records can also be records featuring strange configurations or pressing,[citation needed] such as extra or unusually sized holes,[citation needed] locked grooves, and parallel grooves.[citation needed] One notable noise anti-record was Pagan Muzak, created by noise artist Boyd Rice, which contained locked grooves as well as multiple center holes. RRRecords also published a record containing 500 locked grooves by various artists.
