Hogshead Records? Has a nice ring to it.
A hogshead is a large cask of liquid (less often, of a food commodity). More specifically, it refers to a specified volume, measured in either Imperial units or U.S. customary units, primarily applied to alcoholic beverages such as wine, ale, or cider.
After conversion to imperial measure in 1824, the hogshead became 52.5 imperial gallons.
