Thud, Crackle, Pop by Pete McKee - a new exhibition about vinyl culture

Thud1
It is only on for a limited time, so you might want to make a date in your diary for Thud, Crackle, Pop, Pete McKee's new exhibition about vinyl culture.

The Sheffield-based artist will host the exhibition at 37 Kingsway, London over the dates of Friday 23 and Saturday 24 May 2014, turning the gallery space into a record shop where visitors can look through the new works as if they were 'digging' through the racks in a record store. There will also be listening posts and the chance to browse new McKee merchandise

Also, as part of the exhibition, Pete has asked some well‐known friends about their top ten albums of all time. The picks of the likes of Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller, Irvine Welsh, Mary Anne Hobbs and Sir Paul Smith will form the basis of a huge painting of an 'all‐star' record store.

Pete McKee said:'It's a celebration of all things vinyl. While music is audible, vinyl brings that physical quality to it. The whole process of playing vinyl is a performance, flicking through the racks, carefully pulling the disc from the sleeve and flipping to your preferred side, placing it on the turn table and gently lowering the arm on to the spinning black platter. Hearing the 'thud', 'crackle' and 'pop' before the track begins to play, sitting back with the sleeve admiring the artwork and reading the lyrics, it’s all part of the joy of vinyl.'

You can find out more about the exhibition and all things related to it at the Thud, Crackle, Pop website.
