Craft fair horror

I’ve seen vinyl melted into ash-trays and bowls, stuck on tubing to make cake stands, bent at 45 degree to form book ends, cut into squares and drilled to make spiral-bound notebooks.  But until now I’d never seen a Deep Purple record subject to this sort of treatment. Here’s Smoke On The Water hacked to bits and made into a clock. I blame Kirsty Allsopp.

    You’ll want to stay off eBay then Simon. There are people selling In Rock vinyl bowls and other assorted DP record “art”….

      Thanks for the warning Jim! They’ll be selling romper suits with the Mk 3 logo on next… oh, wait.

    Why cut the vinyl? Just use the LP intact and it would still be playable if desired?…

    What kind of barbarism is this? How evil one has to be to do such a thing… while there is no problem to do a clock from a vinyl without destroying it…
    Fortunately this is a single from the 80’s and not some rare item.

    That puts a whole new meaning on the clock is ticking for vinyl

    They’ll be putting them onto a rotating turntable at 45 revolutions per minute and sticking a needle into them, hoping to get sound out of them next! How ridiculous would that be?!
