Notes

Shoplift was a project where V/Vm broke, scratched, split, taped and hammered 12" vinyls before packing them in bubble wrap sleeves in zip-lock bags with an A4 sheet with instructions to shoplift the vinyl from the shop it was in as they were placed there for that purpose.

I shoplifted my copy from Vinyl Exchange in Manchester. It's a scratched up 12" by The Christians in a zip lock with a yellow A4 instruction sheet.

Were these ever actually placed in any shops? I had a copy myself. I was handed it by Jim and Andy outside an event in Manchester cathedral a few years back. (The one with the notorious Gescom Minidisc performance). What 'Shoplift' actually was, was a smashed and scratched 12" in the customary V/vm bubble wrap sleeve with an insert detailing the 'Shoplift' manifesto, whereby the 'release' was to be secreted in various record shops accross the globe and had to be stolen. It also mentioned something about purple wellingtons and peruvian accents if i remember correctly (i'm not kidding!).
