Cover Versions - Record-edition and installation by Andrew Pekler
Duration: 8. - 19.12.2012
Opening on Friday, December 7, 2012 at 8 pm with a live performance by Andrew Pekler
LAURA MARS GRP.
Sorauer Straße 3
For ten days, the gallery Laura Mars Grp. is transformed into a record shop, complete with records in browser bins, recommendations on the walls and a record shop clerk to assist customers. This record shop, however, only sells one record: Cover Versions by Andrew Pekler, each copy of which is packaged in its own individual album cover.
Andrew Pekler selected 200 different covers from second-hand records and, using colorful geometric elements to cover over all titles, performer's names, and label logos, removed traces of the covers' original contexts. The sunsets, couples in silhouette, alpine panoramas, roses on pianos, female faces in close-up, and seascapes no longer serve as the packaging for easy listening and exotica. Instead, the romantic, bizarre and intriguingly bland images of the original covers are free to lend their evocative powers to the record of new music they now house. Likewise, the principle of collage is audible in Andrew Pekler's compositions. Here, the electronically transformed fragments of audio extracted from the original records take on a new existence as Cover Versions.
Cover Versions is a coproduction between Andrew Pekler, Laura Mars Grp., Fant™me Verlag and Senufo Editions.

04.02.2012 RIP Mike Kelley.
We had been in contact just recently.....feels very strange, unreal and depressing; hollow. He was an inspiring artist and human being and he will be missed thoroughly. You should check out his musical output of the past years - it's highly original and inimitable and had been clouded by his visual art. Yummy Puffy Mommy Yoni is one of my favourite records ever. He had sent over the Boogie Man CD just a few days before his death and it's a helluva fun. I'm imagining him jamming with a bunch of 6 and 7 year old kids. Chocolate, dolphins.....good times.
16.01.2012 QWARTZ AWARDS:
Iibiis Rooge are nominated for a Qwartz Discovery Award. It's a public voting process and you can vote for them here:
02.08.2011 We have now reduced most of the editions down to 400 copies (sometimes 300) so some of the releases will be selling out faster than usual. We simply can't afford to rent more warehouse space (the appartment is too small) and wait for a year or three for releases to sell out. That means some people will miss on certain LP's when they sell out fast but you can always buy downloads at the usual sources (which will support the musicians and the label) or, I guess, find the music somewhere if you can't afford / don't want to buy it.
That said, I have to emphasize that all our vinyl is (and always has been) mastered & cut at Berlin's Dubplates&Mastering for highest quality.
We are down to the last 10 - 20 copies of the Datashock 2LP and the KFW/Alien Radio split is now sold out.
Same goes for Dekorder 012, 018, 030, 031, 040
