Leeds Record Cover Exhibition 'Mock N Roll' Features Pulled Apart By Horses, Sky Larkin
The works is inspired by some of the most weird and wonderful albums covers in history.
A new exhibition in Leeds sees illustrator Jack Hudson team-up with 3D duo Lord Whitney to produce work inspired by some of most weird and wonderful record covers in music history. Though particularly strange, you won't find Aphex Twin's Windowlicker, Captain Beefheart's Trout Mask Replica, or even Hot Chip's The Warning anywhere to be seen at the exhibition - at Leeds Gallery, Munro House - though you may be surprised by what you do encounter.
Hudson and Lord Whitney - the latter made up of Amy Lord and Rebecca Whitney - have created their very own back catalogue of LP cover designs for a series of fictitious artists, some of whom you may spot wandering around at the preview viewing. As such, the exhibition will be a feast for both the eyes and ears, with strange, warped artworks bolstered by original music from Leeds favourites Pulled Apart by Horses, Department M, Lone Wolf, and Sky Larkin.
There's also an opportunity for you to get involved in the project, by contributing to Mock N Roll's Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign and helping with the costs of bringing this unique exhibition to Leeds. In exchange, the team are offering a variety of perks ranging from MP3's to signed artwork. Visit the project's Indiegogo page by clicking HERE.
