Vinyl and a minor comeback for collectors
One Media is piloting a Vinyl LP deal with four of its nostalgic digital releases, now being made available for collectors on vinyl LP. We have said it before, but who would have thought vinyl would outlive the newcomer ‘music download’ – but as Apple shut its door on MP3’s as a download format, the PVC (polyvinyl chloride) makes a non-green return. You just can’t kill off a format that has been around for over 135 years. In 1887, German-American inventor Emile Berliner developed lateral-cut flat discs to be played on the gramophone, similar in use and appearance to the vinyl records we know today. Today as we approach 2024, One Media thinks it’s time to create a celebration range for specialist collectors of its digital copyrights and those of trusted partners under The Carolean branded label. George McCrae, Mungo Jerry, Judy Boucher and the Troggs will be the first four out of the stamper. Contact us if you are looking to distribute or have an idea for a vinyl release to be considered for this prestigious new range.

Mike Bennett’s Horror Film ‘Vegan Vampires from Zorg’ Finally Released
In association with Friedbanana Productions and Maverick Producer and LTW Radio Presenter Mike Bennett, who has produced groups such as the Fall, The Specials, Shane MacGowan, Ian Brown and many more, finally gets to air a cut of the long-awaited horror film Vegan Vampires From Zorg. Mike says “We’ve already got a deal with One Media IP who are based at Pinewood Studios. They’ve got a lot of different vehicles and platforms and of course that includes Amazon Prime which is absolutely perfect for this project. However, it will be going on some more specialist streaming sites as well as a noted cinema chain which will be announced shortly”.
