Some would say that international acclaim, a cassette tape revolution, fancy write ups in the New York Times and parade of sold-out festivals are sure signs that Burger Records has finally made it to the big leagues. To that we say...nay! The true sign of this OC-based label's success happened only recently and it's actually about as simple as it gets---the dudes finally created a real burger to call their own.

Last weekend, label founders Sean Bohrman and Lee Rickard debuted their beefy new creation, dubbed the Hangover Burger, alongside chef Joseph Mahon at Burger Parlor in Fullerton. A Burger burger named after a Burger festival? That's marketing on top of marketing right there. Using Mahon's world-class chef skills, the Burger guys designed this masterpiece as the perfect cure to nurse Saturday night's PBR binge. Served as a specialty item exclusively on Sundays, it seems appropriate for a label that treats their consumption of burgers like a religion. We talked briefly with chef Mahon about what went into this tasty monstrosity. But mostly, we're just using this as an excuse to tease you with some food porn.
