Downstairs at Mother, 20th and 27th of September, 11am-5pm. Free

Featuring over 200 company sleeves from my personal collection.

An installation / exhibition of 7 inch record cover artwork using empty shops and spare spaces as venues. Independent record labels, bands, artists and designers are choosing their favourite 7 inch cover artwork, from both their labels and of all time (from any decade, genre, label etc) for the exhibition. Think installation/event/ pop-up in unusual empty spaces and shops.

For the Record celebrates great music, iconic design, the beauty of the 7 inch vinyl format DIY culture and the importance of the independent record shop in a modern, unusual touring project.
