Lou Reed guitar coaster inspired by his iconic tobacco sunburst Epiphone Riviera that appeared on the Transformer album cover. This very collectable high quality, hard wearing, high gloss and heat resistant melamine drinks mat design is unique to Rock’n’Roll Redux and is not available in stores.
Shipping: A word to the wise… Although we do dispatch as single items, we highly recommend that customers purchase at least two coasters because they can immediately halve the postage cost per item. Buy three, it gets even better and so on...
Size: 10cm x 10cm (3.94” x 3.94”)
Production: Created on robust, high quality, hard wearing, scratch resistant melamine with a high gloss finish that can withstand temperatures of up to 140ºc. The coasters are hand-made ethically in the UK with a sustainably sourced Eucalyptus board base and a non-slip cork backing. “In a world of mass produced, cheaply manufactured coasters, produced on unprotected paper surfaces that begin to stain, scratch, lose their colour and peel in just a matter weeks, Rock’n’Roll Redux coasters are in a completely different league, on a completely different planet. If you don’t believe me, read the reviews.” David Lloyd
Lou Reed's second solo album, Transformer featured Lou with his now iconic tobacco sunburst Epiphone Riviera on the cover. The shot was taken by legendary rock photographer Mick Rock during a live performance at London’s King’s Cross Cinema on July 14, 1972. The album, produced by David Bowie and Mick Ronson was a meeting of the great creative minds and became a classic album with songs like 'Walk On the Wild Side,' 'Perfect Day' and 'Satellite Of Love' appearing on it. It would prove to be the commercial pinnacle in Lou's long and incredibly influential career.
