The Vinyl Factory concept store - now open!

The Vinyl Factory concept store - now open! The new shop and gallery is located in the Front Room of the St Martins Lane Hotel, and represents The Vinyl Factory’s first foray into displaying and selling its art and music limited editions in a physical space. The company – FACT’s mothership – has built a formidable reputation crafting high-spec deluxe vinyl editions of records, always with a strong visual or fine art component, by the likes of Damon Albarn & Jamie Hewlett, Pet Shop Boys, Grace Jones, Hot Chip, David Lynch and Massive Attack. The new retail residency will last three months, during which time there will be a series of new editions launched and changing exhibitions. Among the new additions to the portfolio is a limited edition box set of music from The Most IncredibleaThing, the forthcoming Sadler’s Wells ballet scored by the Pet Shop Boys in collaboration with choreographer/director Javier de Frutos. Also set to see release this Spring is a limited edition of Duran Duran‘s latest album, All You Need Is Now, with artwork by the acclaimed British artist Clunie Reid, in collaboration with Pop magazine art director Rory McCartney. The temporary store/gallery - an homage to the relationship between art and music - also offers the public the rare chance to find previous Vinyl Factory editions available for sale offline, including Massive Attack’s Heligoland, Michael Nyman’s Cine Opera and Bryan Ferry’s Olympia. in fact
