Before he played drums in Ovlov or Speedy Ortiz, Michael Falcone began recording demo tapes using a Tascam 4-Track Portastudio, heavily inspired by the lofi muddiness of proto-grunge bands like Sebadoh and Guided By Voices. Between 2006 and 2014, Falcone recorded a dozen cassettes and CDRs under names like Lip Keebler and Dead Wives, which was also the name of the 3-piece band who would perform these songs live. Two notable releases during this period were Buzzy Fuzzy (Obscure Me, 2014) - a concept release about a plague of bees signaling the apocalypse - and Scuz Bucket (self-released, 2011) their only EP as a 3-piece with Falcone on vocals and guitar, Jumanji Wahlberg on bass, and Mike Henss on drums. Inspired to become more Satanic, they were rechristened as Hellrazor in April 2015. Seagreen Records is set to release Hellrazor's first cassette on one side of a split with Boston's Spook The Herd in Summer 2015.
