Tom Vek will celebrate the 10 year anniversary of his debut album ‘We Have Sound’ by performing the album in full at Brixton Electric, London on May 22.
Tummy Touch records will celebrate the anniversary by releasing ‘We Have Sound’ as a limited edition, signed and numbered triple LP box set. A release date is yet to be announced.
Vek is also marking his debut album’s anniversary by auctioning off a guitar used throughout the album on eBay. The 1962 short-scale Fender Duo-Sonic will be accompanied by a signed polaroid taken during the recording of album track ‘I Ain’t Saying My Goodbyes’. The auction is set to end on May 15.
Released in 2005, Tom Vek followed ‘We Have Sound’ with two further albums, 2011’s ‘Leisure Seizure’ and last year’s ‘Luck.’
Vek recently unveiled a new music video for ‘Broke’ featuring £1 million of cash going up in flames.
The clip features famous footage of the acid house duo The KLF setting £1 million of their own money on fire on the Scottish island of Jura.
Vek explained that the 1994 footage seemed “all the more ironic when attempting to make one for ‘Broke,’ one of the most personal songs from my latest album”.
