wiaiwya-7777777 is a seven inch singles club – a very ambitious seven inch singles club.
“there’s this sadness when you can’t find it on vinyl, because it’s like it’s not proper” - Pete Paphides
Now in its fourth year (of seven), it is a celebration of the seven inch format, as well as all things seven. 210 lucky subscribers sign up, and get seven exclusive 45s in the post. The records are always released on the 7th of the month (one on each day of the week), and 77 days before release date just 77 copies are made available to purchase individually.
“The 45rpm single, the hard, black centrepiece of the teenage revolution” – Bob Stanley
For 2015 we have asked some of our favourite bands and artists to collaborate on a one off single, to try something a little different, and to prove the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. These are then being pressed onto 2 colour vinyl discs, and inserted into numbered reverse board sleeves.
“It was a piece of science as much as it was art and beauty and sex and glamour” – Paul Morley
