I give Durst a little bit of credit for being in Limp Bizkit since they made a couple songs that are ok to listen to on occasion.

No, Fred Durst is the guy from Hootie and the Blowfish.

You're thinking of Vince Neil.

What about lathe cut records? They're ready for sale as soon as they're cut. How is this even a record?

I don't know, I thought this was kind of cool, even if I don't ever plan on listening to it.

I don't know if it counts as an "album", it's a single, but a 4 hour turnaround is impressive.

Agreed.  And then coming back and doing an hour long set is a pretty cool thing to do as well.

Not a commercial product, as each one has to be hand-cut.

Apparently, the pressing plant White uses is two blocks from his studio in Nashville, which likely led to the idea.

He reinvigorated guitar based blues rock and made the lead guitar cool again.

It was a cool thing to do. And a fun thing to do for Internetional Record Store Day.

He has a cutter right there in his building hooked up tohis mastering room which is hooked up to his control room which one side of overlooks the stage of a small-venue sized room.  He played it live, recorded it, maybe straight to the cutter. The cutter lathe makes a master which is then used to make plates to press the commercial pressing. The turn around time mostly was the printing company's time to make the plates.

A novelty for record day to do this, hopefully he/they learned to use their cutting machine, I've heard a few records of his labels and while they don't sound bad, they sound too... clean.

/Toured the complex that is is his Third Man thing last year, he has a lot of neat gear. Too bad he's a douche. Usually in this day and age the recording master file would be sent to a mastering engineer and then a cutting house and then to the pressing plant. He's able to send stuff right to the pressing plant. Doesn't mean he should,
//Have watched master record cutters work before, took him nine tries to get our album right.

Given that they were cutting a one- or two-song record, it likely didn't take that long.

The turn-around time is the thing which is moderately amazing, as it usually takes weeks to go from masters to finished product in this day and age.  I've known people who've driven hundreds of miles to get something mastered or to listen to a test pressing at the plant, as the pressing business moves at a glacial speed.
