Always Use Clean Needles, one of the earliest and still the most popular designs.

SKU: mh05red Categories: , ,


We love to accentuate those small things that make our pastimes pleasurable. The little details that we take for granted make up the hidden highlights of the total experience. The inspection of your vinyl against the light or the sharp blow on the needle to remove unwanted dust. Before you have heard whatever you dug out of your crate, you want to hear the sound of the crackle on the old vinyl as the needle is eased into the groove…

Originally, this design was to be called “Needle To The Groove” after the Mantronix hit. I was pondering the almost finished artwork and listening to some early Hiphop through headphones and turned around to see the end of a comedy sketch on TV. All I caught was a soft focus picture of a teddy bear wrapped in ribbons and across the screen, in a handwrittern script was Always Use Clean Needles. I found out after the adverts it was The Adam and Joe Show. I have no idea if it was a funny sketch but I knew that my homage to Mantronix had to wait…

A large number of photos were taken to document the whole vinyl selection process thru to the final four steps featured in this joint.
