Stop Flooding My Record Collection

I cant fuckin wait for this:

Stop flooding my record collection is a charity exhibition where artists have created new covers for a jazz records salvaged from the Brisbane floods. Join us at Smiley McSlidey (124 Nicholson St, Brunswick East) from 6pm on Friday 6 May to add a special record to your collection and contribute to a great cause.

Artists, illustrators and designers from Australia and abroad have generously contributed their talents to the project, creating original album artwork to help raise money for the ongoing relief effort. French, Tin & Ed, Webuyyourkids, Rudi De Wet, The Hungry Workshop and Hank & Matlok headline a solid list of creatives contributing to the project.

Stop flooding my record collection came about after a large, waterlogged stack – 50 years of lovingly collected jazz records – were saved during the clean up effort after the Brisbane floods. The cover-less albums were then put out to artists, who chose their muse and set about creating new sleeves for the vinyl.

This exhibition is a celebration of art, music and the significant and emotional role these things play in our lives. It is an opportunity, through the act of reclaiming this nigh lost collection, to help some of the many Queenslanders that were so badly effected by the 2011 floods.

All proceeds donated to The Premier's Disaster Relief Appeal.
