    Default Secret 7" exhibition

    Just chanced on this on Facebook - of interest to VG+ers?

    Secret 7 request the pleasure of your company at our exhibition and sale.

    The project set out to rekindle some of the excitement for vinyl sleeve art in the digital era by exploring how a track would be interpreted by an array of brilliant artists. And raise a load of cash for Teenage Cancer Trust in the process.

    Last year The Cure, Florence & The Machine, Bombay Bicycle Club, DJ Shadow, CSS, Noah & The Whale and Ben Howard selected a track and invited designers from around the world a chance to produce their sleeve via Talenthouse. Thousands were submitted and whittled down by each artist to their favourites.

    These have been joined by designs from our line-up of musicians and a crack team of creatives.

    To name just a few: David Shrigley, Michael Spencer Jones (Oasis, Verve), Central Station (Happy Mondays, Black Grape), Inkie, Toby Mott (De La Soul), Mr Bingo, Stylorouge (Blur, The Cure, Morrissey), Richard Evans (The Who), Pete Fowler (The Horrors) and Grammy winner Peter Corriston (The Rolling Stones, Billy Idol, Carole King, Debbie Harry, Led Zeppelin, New York Dolls and Tom Waits).

    From Wednesday through to Friday the collection of hundreds of individually artworked sleeves will be displayed for viewing.

    Come Saturday Record Store Day through to close on Sunday the exhibition is yours to own. Each of the one-of-a-kind heavyweight 7 records will be available to take home with you for a minimum donation to Teenage Cancer Trust of 40.

    The exhibition has an air of mystery in that no-one will know who designed each sleeve, or which of our seven tracks is housed inside until after they have been purchased.

    We are only able to take cash donations - so be sure to bring plenty along with you.

    Every penny profited is going to Teenage Cancer Trust.

    For full details -
    "As technology has advanced, vinyl records are outdated as they are music from the 19th Century so only hipsters and elderly people buy vinyl records".

    Mixes for your delectation:

    Sorry, someone had to post it didn't they?

    The Cure + David Shrigley = 1,000,000
