Many of us still have them lurking somewhere in a cupboard or attic space and we rarely give them any thought, but old vinyl records are making an artistic comeback – albeit not quite in the way the original performers might have imagined. With the advent of the CD, vinyl record production rapidly declined but there are still millions of old discs in circulation.

Old Vinyl Record Painted as Wall Hanging

Around 7 billion kilos of vinyl are produced by manufacturers every year, with over 70% going to durable construction items like pipes and siding. Still, there is undoubtedly a lot of vinyl out there by weight sitting unused. Some is incinerated, but fortunately vinyl can also be melted and reformed over and over. Some vinyl records are thus being dusted off and collected to be made into entirely different products that bear no resemblance to the record itself.
