Sally Started It All / Barberosophy (limited edition 7" vinyl single in wicker & bird feather packaging)

by Marthas & Arthurs

supported by
  • Record/Vinyl

    Only a handful left of this specially packaged, homespun, ridiculous cottage industry hair-brained vinyl masterpiece, which doubles as a wall-hanging charm thing.

    Each record was individually cut at Peter King's much-admired operation in New Zealand, and comes complete with authentic record crackle and pops and clicks just like they had in the old days. If you want to know what Marthas & Arthurs would have sounded like in occupied Europe in 1942 (really quiet) then this is the product for you. (pretend they had see-thru plastic records in 1942)

    We made the willow wicker covers ourselves with the help of basket maker Francis Keenan in the Golden Valley, Herefordshire (www.franceskeenan.co.uk). And we collected the feathers for fucking ages. Still some way short of the required 600, we might run out soon, so you might have to collect a few yourself and add them as you see fit. (UPDATE: WE'VE RUN OUT OF FEATHERS AND QUITE FRANKLY GONE A BIT MAD PICKING THEM UP, SO PLEASE BE AWARE THAT YOU'LL HAVE TO COLLECT 12 FEATHERS YOURSELF. BUT AT LEAST IT WILL GET YOU OUT OF THE HOUSE AND GET YOU THINKING A BIT ABOUT NATURE AND THAT)
    ((NEW UPDATE: WE FOUND LOADS OF FEATHERS ON THE SHORES OF A LAKE IN THE LAKE DISTRICT SO WE'RE ALRIGHT AGAIN))
