History of vinyl traced in new panel discussion at ICA



The Rise, Fall and Rise of Vinyl Records.

To coincide with its celebration of the art of PiL, the ICA is hosting a panel discussion on ‘The Rise, Fall and Rise of Vinyl Records’. The esteemed panel of speakers includes Peter Saville, Adrian Shaughnessy and our very own Sean Bidder.

Chaired by Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy of Classic Album Sundays, the event promises to trace the influence that vinyl cover design has had on popular culture, what differentiates vinyl from alternative formats, and why there is a resurgence amongst the download generation.

The event takes place on 4 May at 6.30pm. Click here for tickets.
