The Correspondents

Here at Louder Than War our love of vinyl has been well documented; we have supported various crowd funding schemes based around vinyl including the film ‘Vinylmania -When life runs at 33rpm’ and have ran features (Vinyl – An enduring love affair) documenting interesting vinyl pressings from across the years.

Well today one such interesting vinyl release caught our attention; London based swing/hip-hop duo The Correspondents released their new single ‘Well Measured Vice’ today.

As well as the digital release they will be putting out 500 limited edition 10” vinyls. Each single has a bespoke hand drawn illustration by lead singer and artist Mr. Bruce on the back.

These five hundred images have been made into a bespoke animated video clip with a number out of 500 scrolling at the bottom of the screen that corresponds to the numbered images on the back of each record. This means if you are quick you can pause the video on the exact same image that you have on the back of your copy…clever idea.

Here is the link to the video, see what you make of it..

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
