John Peel's Records in The V&A

Post has attachment
In November of last year, we invited First Word Records to visit Peel Acres for the third and final part of their trilogy of Record Store Day releases.
Producers Tall Black Guy, Kidkanevil, Eric Lau & Mr Thing spent the day exploring the collection, tasked with finding inspiration and samples from the thousands of records on the shelves. They then each created a new track from their discoveries on the day.

In November of last year we invited First Word Records to visit Peel Acres for the third and final part of their trilogy of Record Store Day releases.

Producers Tall Black Guy, Kidkanevil, Eric Lau & Mr Thing spent the day exploring the collection, tasked with finding inspiration and samples from the thousands of records on the shelves. They then each created a new track from their discoveries on the day.

The resulting tracks will be released on a double 7” pack which will be available on Record Store Day 2016. All four tracks on the record were created using music sampled from the John Peel Archive.

The first opportunity for you to hear the tracks will be on Friday 1st April on BBC 6Music.

We are pleased to announce that we will be collaborating with the V&A Museum in a forthcoming exhibition which will explore the optimism, ideals and aspirations of the late 1960s, expressed through some of the greatest music and performances of the 20th century alongside fashion, film, design and political activism. The exhibition considers how the finished and unfinished revolutions of the time changed the way we live today and think about the future.

10 September 2016 – 26 February 2017
