RedHouse Originals are delighted to present Pete McKee's Thud, Crackle, Pop at Sound City 2015.
Thud, Crackle, Pop is a pop-up exhibition for vinyl lovers. And we are thrilled to be hosting the collection for the first time at Liverpool's annual city centre music festival and conference.
Supported by Paul Smith and with contributions from music fans including Noel Gallagher, Paddy Considine and Mary Anne Hobbs, the exhibition has attracted thousands of vistors since its inception.
The inspiration behind the show was McKee’s love of music and from the culture surrounding vinyl- those who buy it, play it, sell it and create it.
McKee: “It's a celebration of all things vinyl. While music is audible, vinyl brings that physical quality to it. The whole process is a performance; flicking through the racks, carefully pulling the disc from the sleeve, flipping to your preferred side, placing it on the turntable and gently lowering the arm onto the spinning black disc. Hearing the 'thud', 'crackle' and 'pop' before the track begins to play, sitting back with the sleeve admiring the artwork and reading the lyrics. This is my homage to vinyl and the glory of the 12' sleeve.”
