How A Punk Rock Record Label And A Vintage Racing Team Mix

Slowdeath Ducati Races to Punk Rock Victory

Fans of 3-chord hardcore punk such as SS Decontrol, the F.U.'s, Discharge, and
Entombed, as well as Ducati motorcycle racing may be interested in the musical
and motorcycle roadracing endeavors of 3 chord hardcore band Slowdeath.

In March, the Moebius Palindrome record label, home of Slowdeath, signed
distribution agreements with Century Media Records and Relapse Records, two
giants in the heavy music industry. Label owner and racer Ed Milich: "Century
Media and Relapse both have outstanding histories of effectively exposing new
artists in the loud music scene. I'm proud to be able to work with them in
gaining wider exposure for Slowdeath's music and the Moebius Palindrome label".

The Slowdeath sponsored Ducati 650ss is the current #1 Plate Holder in AHRMA's
Vintage Superbike Middleweight class.The bike, piloted by Moebius Palindrome
owner and Slowdeath founder Ed Milich, finished on the podium on both days of
the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA)'s 2007 Bike Week
Races in Daytona, Florida in March 2007. More recently, it won two races
during the Corsa Moto Classica at Willow Springs in April. The bike is also
the 2006 Vintage Lightweight Class Champion machine with the Willow Springs
Motorcycle Club (WSMC). The Slowdeath Ducati ridden by Ed Milich will continue
to race monthly at Willow Springs in Southern California and at upcoming AHRMA
events at Mid Ohio and Barber Motorsports.
