New vinyl exhibition celebrates 1990 records celebrating their 33 ⅓ anniversary

Happy Mondays' iconic Pills ‘n’ Thrills and Bellyaches’ will be among the classic albums celebrated

33 ⅓ vinyl exhibition

A new vinyl exhibition celebrating iconic records from 1990 is due to open in London later this week.

Curated by vinyl record pressing manufacturer Key Production Group to mark its 33 1/3 birthday, the '33 1/3 Vinyl Exhibition' opens at The Vinyl Cafe, Tileyard London on Thursday (30th November) for two weeks and will celebrate albums such as 'Pills ‘n’ Thrills and Bellyaches’ by Happy Mondays as well as records by the likes of Kylie Minogue, Ride, Deee-Lite and Prince.

“The exhibition is a trip down memory lane to where it all started for us, when these records were the sounds of that time," says Karen Emanuel, CEO of Key Production Group. "But more than a look backwards, it’s a chance to celebrate the present and future of vinyl. We welcome everyone, '90s music fans old and new, to come by the Vinyl Cafe, grab a drink, and immerse themselves in a journey through vinyl!”

Key Production Group, founded in 1990 as Key Production, is a leading manufacturer of vinyl, cassettes, CDs, and DVDs for the music industry, and has worked on projects for artists including Björk, Radiohead, Little Simz and on Ezra Collective's Mercury Prize award-winning album, 'Where I’m Meant To Be'.

The '33 1/3 Vinyl Exhibition' will be open until 13th December. Find out more here.

Back in June, members of the Happy Mondays and Ride formed a new supergroup, Mantra of the Cosmos, marking their arrival with debut single 'Gorilla Guerilla'.
