White Cube
Promotional Item
Copperface Jacks
These promo items (containing real sugar!) were conceived by White Cube drummer Dave Clarkson.

They were then handed out to all and sundry in pubs and venues around manchester during the week before their second performance at Copperface Jacks on 10/06/1999.

Copperface Jacks was part of the Palace Hotel building on Oxford Road.

I got the sample jars from a lab I worked in and printed the label stickers with the band refered to as a chemical formulation as Yt Qb. Doubt I'd use the sugar in my tea now!

The bag label was designed by Mark and Paul at Fred Aldous art supplies shop on Lever St in town.
Griff Says –
These were mostly dished out at a party in the empty mall at Picadilly bus station. It was the opening of MART, a city-wide contemporary visual art fest.
