The Message of the Matrix

Posted by on Thu, Feb 28, 2013 at 11:36 AM

For years, bands have scratched messages into the run off grooves of their records. I first noticed it on punk/hardcore records in the '80s. It was cool to suss out the shit cause it made the band seem that much MORE in the know and connected to who they were playing to.

Here's Bl’ast's message from their Power of Expression LP...what does it MEAN!?!

Side A: I DIE LAUGHING AT YOU WHEN YOU LAUGH AT ME
Side B: SCREAM FOR TOMORROW

If you have time to eyeball THIS PARTIAL LIST of matrix messages do it, it's a time suck, but entertaining! Please add any other found matrix messages in the comments!

Botch had some of the best non sequitur matrix runouts. And Narrows is continuing the tradition.

Not a message, per se, but I always thought that the etching on the 6th side of Boards of Canada's Geogaddi set was rad:
