If you are an old geezer like me, you may recall the days we’d go and buy our music from a record shop. Our 7″ & 12″ vinyl singles and albums would come on lovely two sided vinyl. As well as the music there was visual content added into the bargain, wonderful sleeve art and paper printed centres carrying record label and catalogue numbers, we’d sit looking at all of this while listening to the music on our record players, it was good.
There was also sometimes secret visual content that only the most attentive would discover, and in those days we didn’t have an internet to pass on this information, so it was self discovery or word of mouth that would reveal… a message between the run out groove and the centre label.
Now, I have a vinyl copy of Clint Mansell‘s stunning soundtrack to MOON, it is still sealed in cellophane and “Mint” so I have never even taken the record out to look at it. At least one person has though, thanks to James Lloyd we can now reveal the secret message on the vinyl edition of the MOON soundtrack…

Anyone near Shipley, West Yorkshire has a unique opportunity to attend a great evening of film and music.
The Record Club along with Shipley Film Society are holding an evening of film & music on Sunday, January 22nd. A screening of Duncan Jones award winning 2009 debut MOON starring Sam Rockwell, will be followed by a full play through of David Bowie’s 1971 classic album Hunky Dory (celebrating it’s 40th Birthday!) on vinyl 🙂
The Record Club were inspired by reading an article on the BBC News site on record clubs and the idea of returning to listening to vinyl LPs all the way through, as originally intended by the recording artiste. Shipley Film Society’s aim is to bring together like minded people for film viewing and discussion over a few drinks afterwards. Combine the two and you have what promises to be a wonderful evening of film & music with a bunch of great people to boot!
As well as MOON & Hunky Dory, the evening will also be mixing in associated music including records from MOON score composer Clint Mansell’s former band Pop Will Eat Itself. Shipley Film Society have also requested that anyone that owns 7″ vinyl copies of Chesney Hawkes ‘The One and Only’ and Katrina & The Waves ‘Walking On Sunshine’ bring them along too. If you’ve seen MOON you’ll know why, if not…
When: Sunday, January 22nd 2012 @ 19:00
Where: The Kirkgate Centre, Shipley, BD18 3RR
