SECRET 7 (Record Store Day's Best Kept Secret)

Get down to Mother London, 10 Redchurch Street, London E2 7DD on the 13th and 14th of April and see the Secret 7 show. 700 one-of-a-kind 7" sleeves are available to buy for £40 a pop. The event is in association with Record Store Day. In aid of Art Against Knives. You can buy a seven inch single by Elton John (Bernie & The Jets), Public Enemy (Harder Than You Think), Haim (Better Off), Jessie Ware (Still Love Me), Laura Marling (The Beast), Nas (The Don) or Nick Drake (Rider On The Wheel)the sleeve might be designed by Gilbert & George, David Shrigley, Team Beswick & Pye, or even Li Wei - you wont know whose the artist behind the image you've picked until you've handed the £40 over as it's all a secret! (Above: Gordon Beswick) (Above: Harry Pye) Last year the Secret 7 project (organised by Kevin King) raised over £30 grand - let's hope this year's show makes even more. Kevin says: "This year every penny profited is going to youth charity ART AGAINST KNIVES to help fund creative initiatives around London. Making Art Against Knives our charity of choice this year was an easy decision. On top of the money and awareness we generate this year, we will ensure that every aspect of the project provides an opportunity for the young people that they work with."
