“Archaeology Project” for Recorded Music

As part of a long-term museum project called The Science of Rock’n’Roll, I’ve been doing some serious research and outreach to people who can help put the exhibit together.  That’s how I connected with the people at Kop’s Records in Toronto.  They have a collection of stuff that’s pretty freakin’ cool.

We hunt down arifacts, dust them off, and try to understand the stories they tell us about the material that our culture is made out of.

While they have a massive collection of physical material, they’re only just posting it online.  There’s precious little to look at right now, but there’s more coming.  And if you could offer any kind of help or assistance to these folks, I’m sure they’d appreciate it.
