Author: Studio tasked with creating major battle sequence in Dwayne Johnson hero epic
Yesterday saw the sale of Secret 7"'s 700 vinyl singles featuring artworks from Sir Peter Blake, Yoko Ono, Julian Opie, David Shrigley, Martin Parr, Sir Paul Smith, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Urs Fischer, Bob & Roberta Smith, Modern Toss, Tatty Devine, Paul Insect, Bompas and Parr, Pure Evil, Stanley Donwood, Mr Bingo, Goldie and Pete Fowler – all created to raise money for music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins.
The sleeves were all sold for £50, though buyers weren't told who they were by until after they'd bought them. Queues were long to buy the singles, with 30 people camped overnight – and 550 singles were sold yesterday. The rest will be auctioned on eBay.
The artists had to design cover art for one of seven singles: The Rolling Stones' Dead Flowers, Diana Ross & The Supremes' Reflections, Underworld's Born Slippy (Nuxx), The Chemical Brothers' Let Forever Be; St Vincent's Digital Witness, Peter Gabriel's Sledgehammer and The Maccabees' Go.
