Bristol’s premiere independent music magazine Crack are celebrating 100 boundary-breaking issues of insightful interviews and cracking criticism with a exhibition set to showcase some of the best shoots and spreads to have appeared on its inky pages over the years.
Taking place at Shoreditch’s Htown Gallery on 10-11 May, eager-eared, eagle-eyed music lovers will be able to splash the cash on a limited edition run of prints, with all profits going to UK charity Arts Emergency.
“Across 100 issues, we’ve worked with a roster of both established and on-the-rise photographers to create cutting-edge visuals of the artists who’ve opened up vital conversations through our pages,” says the team at Crack.
Featured photographers include Joshua Gordon, Vitali Gelwich and Yavez Anthonio, while artists to be gawped at in the gallery include Waka Flocka Flame, Idles, and Charli XCX.
Rumours that former cover star Aphex Twin is set to don his headphones behind the decks over the weekend are sadly unconfirmed.
