The Ecstatic Peace Library Pop-up Record Store & Gallery in Stoke Newington

On Wednesday 5th February the Ecstatic Peace Library, a pop-up record store, book store and gallery space will open at 96 Stoke Newington Church Street (nearly opposite The Good Egg), for six weeks.  It's a collaboration between musician Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), artist Edwin Pouncey (aka Savage Pencil), and Pete Flanagan (Zippo Records).  Go along for an eclectic selection of music and more; both Moore and Pouncey will be selling records from their personal collection.

"ECSTATIC PEACE LIBRARY is an exciting new venture from three titans of the music and
underground scene.
Thurston Moore, lead singer of legendary art rock band Sonic Youth is joining his long-time
friend - the seminal underground comic artist, Edwin Pouncey AKA Savage Pencil – to fulfil a
life-long friendship dream come true and finally open a record store / bookstore /
underground newspaper + ephemera outpost / art gallery / radical culture centre... this
February 2020!!!!
They have teamed up with the pioneering record store/label owner Pete Flanagan (of Soho
Music / Zippo Records) to bring the pop-up store to life in Stoke Newington, where Moore
currently lives.
All three will bring their combined experience to open what promises to be a treasure trove
of vinyl, posters, art, vintage t-shirts and music memorabilia. Thurston will be selling records
from his personal collection, as will Savage Pencil. There will be something to cater to all
tastes and budgets."
