As part of his ongoing Secret Histories project, Charity Shop DJ will be untangling the Secret Histories of the Sixties as told by the charity shops of Swinging London.
What were people really listening to? How much of it survives today?
An unexpected slice of the Sixties will be served up by Charity Shop DJ at an exhibition of album cover art to be held throughout June and July 2009 at Art Vinyl's new Carnaby Street gallery.
Art Vinyl will be opening their new gallery in Kingley Court on 3rd June 2009.
The gallery will feature an exhibition of Art & Music of 60s London presented in association with the recently opened British Music Experience at The O2, the UK’s first fully interactive exhibition dedicated to rock and pop.
Art and music from the likes of the Rolling Stones, Dusty Springfield, Joe Meek’s Tornados and The Yardbirds will be exhibited alongside unsung heroes of the era such as the New Vaudeville Band and the Mystic Moods Orchestra and their English Muffins album.
Throughout the summer there will be a series of events happening at the Art Vinyl Carnaby Gallery to celebrate London’s 60’s Music at its finest:
10th June: Bring Your Parents’ 60’s Records hosted by Jonny Awsum
13th/14th June: Swinging Carnaby, the best in 60’s Art and Music with the Art Vinyl DJs
