Record Store Day. So often referred to as the home of the major label reissue and the £19 one track 7”. But here in our little indie corner of the world we’re shaking things up. Shaking things up with a brightly coloured paintbrush.

Ever the fans of the brash, artistic statement – we’ve teamed up with long term label loves Art Brut to reissue a brand new version of 2005 indie megahit (in terms of legacy rather than chart positions mind) ‘Modern Art’... With a 16 minute, as live ‘Berlinische’ version of the single crammed onto a black and red splatter 7” (named after the German modern art gallery it was recorded round the corner from). So far, so RSD.

But here’s where it gets interesting. After an idea from Alcopop! collaborator Rhi Lee (of Rhi Lee Design fame) we’ve taken each one of the 300 sleeves, and asked a different person to ink each one to their own specifications with a simple brief inspired by the song’s lyrics: JUST DO IT UP WITH ART THAT MAKES YOU WANT TO ROCK OUT.

Amongst fans, family, friends and members of the band across the world crafting some next level artistic creations, there’s some interesting names amongst the assembled artists – with the likes of Frank Black, John Cooper Clarke, Dev from Idles, Ian Burden ex The Human League, Eddison Tollett from Game of Thrones, The Lovely Eggs, bis, Helen Love, Tess Parks and members of TIGERCUB, Gaffa Tape Sandy, False Advertising, Beach Riot, BO NINGEN and cheerbleederz all doing wonderful things.
