London band Sugar Coat have created the world’s first playable jigsaw.
One copy of the trio’s debut single ‘Me Instead’ is available as a jigsaw made of vinyl, which has been made by a pressing plant in Finland. Guitarist Billy Brentford Reeves told NME: “Crudely speaking, it’s essentially a hand-made picture disc.”
The jigsaw is one of 35 one-off 7” designs of ‘Me Instead’, including mirrored vinyl, a faux-fur design and one copy inlaid with coal dust from the mines at Orgreave in South Yorkshire, to honour the families of miners in the village where an infamous police attack took place in 1984.
Due on September 23 from the Sugar Coat website, the 7″s will range from £12 to £150 and arrive with a free CD. The band’s next single ‘Just A Man’, due in December, will be pressed to 8” vinyl and limited to just eight copies.
