my heart’s in my hand, and my hand is pierced, and my hand’s in the bag, and the bag is shut, and my heart is caught by Phil Collins

NERO is glad to present my heart’s in my hand, and my hand is pierced, and my hand’s in the bag, and the bag is shut, and my heart is caught by British artist Phil Collins. The edition is composed of a double 12” album which collects 13 tracks by international artists. Neatly set in a silkscreened gatefold sleeve, the LP comes with a booklet featuring original texts by Mark Fisher and Florian Schneider and transcriptions of some of the original telephone conversations.

In 2013 at the GULLIVER center in Cologne, Phil Collins installed a phone booth with a free line that anyone could use for unlimited local and international calls on the agreement that the conversations would be recorded and anonymised. The selected material was posted to a group of international musicians, serving as the starting point for original new songs presented as 7” vinyl records in specially designed listening booths which overlooked the city’s central station.
