The Vinyl Factory pop-up at St Martins Lane Hotel

It would seem we’re leaning towards a bit of a personal crusade to save vinyl. Yesterday it was Jack White’s ‘Rolling Record Store‘ and now today it’s the turn of The Vinyl Factory, and their splendid new temporary retail space at the beautiful St Martins Lane Hotel. Having collaborated with the likes of Damon Albarn, Primal Scream and the Pet Shop Boys, The Vinyl Factory is a unique music and arts enterprise that celebrates one of vinyl’s greatest assets – the record cover. Curating exhibitions, conceiving a series of super-limited deluxe vinyl and art box sets, owning London’s finest record shop Phonica and publishing FACT Magazine, are just a few of the strings to The Vinyl Factory’s considerably impressive bow, and now, the Music Is Art concept store, located in the Front Room of the St Martins Lane Hotel, represents the company’s first foray into displaying and selling its art and music limited editions in a physical space. Running until May 29th, the space will be an “homage to records and the relationship between music and art, celebrating the unique, the tangible and the rare in an age of rapid digital consumption”. MP3s? Who the hell are they?
