TV AGE – The Player EP.

Sometimes a record arrives that I’m really pleased to get hold of. I can’t claim to have found this rarity and I thank my friend Tasso von Haussen for finding it for me. Recognise the image?

The Player EP by TV Age (Not on label).

TV-Age’s The Player EP was released in Germany as a numbered, limited edition 12″ in 2016. My copy is No. 56/100 (handwritten on the inside of the rear cover.) I know nothing about the group and have never seen the record before. The cover is a hand silkscreened image of Banksy’s Every Time I Make Love I Think of Someone Else, and is simply beautiful. The rear cover is blank. The discs are pink vinyl.


Even the B-side label has a reproduction of Banksy’s dripping heart.
The images come from Banksy’s acrylic paintings from 2002. There are two versions of the paintings:


I have not seen this image on a record cover before, and to see it so beautifully reproduced is amazing.
