The Artist/s – The Rolling Stones

The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London, England in 1962. The first stable line-up consisted of Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Mick Jagger (lead vocals), Keith Richards (guitar, backing vocals), Bill Wyman (bass), Charlie Watts (drums), and Ian Stewart (piano). The Rolling Stones were at the forefront of the British Invasion of bands that became popular in the United States in 1964, and identified with the youthful and rebellious counterculture of the 1960s,

Start Me Up – The Song

Start Me Up is a song by the Rolling Stones featured on the 1981 album Tattoo You. Released as the album’s lead single, it reached the top in the UK and other countries and remains the last  song by the band to appear in the UK top 10. The song opens with what has since become a trademark riff for Richards. It is this, coupled with Charlie Watts’ steady backbeat and Bill Wyman’s echoing bass, that comprises most of the song.

The Wind Up Key – The Shape

This record has been modelled into a vintage wind up key as in the type used to wind up a clockwork clock or toy. A wind-up toy is an automaton toy powered by a clockwork motor. The motor is powered usually by a series of coiled springs that are tightened with the aid of a key. Once fully wound and released the unfurling of the coiled spring powers the toy or clock.
