To celebrate the new release of Jimi Hendrix - People, Hell And Angels, a Pop Up Store has opened up for a very limited time, until 12th April, selling all kinds of Jimi Hendrix merchandise. The store at 8 Ganton Street is just off Carnaby Street, just a few doors up from the Great Frog jewellery shop, and will feature Fender® 'Plug & Play demo stations' in addition to hosting a Gered Mankowitz photography exhibition.

Janie L. Hendrix, Jimi Hendrix's sister and President/CEO of Experience Hendrix, L.L.C., made a special appearance at the store on Tuesday, signing copies of the new book Jimi Hendrix: The Ultimate Lyric Book. World renowned music photographer, Gered Mankowitz, made a special appearance at the store from 3–6pm on Saturday 6th April, where talked about working with Jimi Hendrix and signed prints of his work, which have been exclusively produced for the pop-up store.

The Jimi Hendrix pop-up store features the new album 'People, Hell and Angels' as well as the entire Jimi Hendrix music and video catalogue (CDs, LPs, DVDs and Blu- ray releases), including a number of titles that have never been available in the UK. It also sells authorized limited edition Jimi Hendrix merchandise, including clothing, posters, art, books, collectible items, and guitar accessories including pick tins, guitar straps, and effects pedals. There will also be some very special merchandise pieces that have been created specifically for the store itself.

Providing visitors with a unique one-off experience, the basement area will be inhabited by Fender who will be running 'Plug & Play demo stations' where Jimi Hendrix fans can practice their guitar skills and attend 'Jimi Hendrix Master Classes' where they can learn to play Hendrix riffs and licks.

The store will also feature a photography exhibition, displaying pictures taken by Gered Mankowitz, the famed British rock photographer whose lens captured Jimi Hendrix on multiple occasions, and took the picture which became the cover for 'People, Hell and Angels'.

The pop-up store is a stone's throw away from many of the legendary venues synonymous with Jimi Hendrix's time in the capital including Bag O'Nails, Ronnie Scott's, Marquee Club, The Speakeasy and is in close proximity to his former central London flat on 23 Brook Street.

The pop-up store coincides with the release of 'People, Hell and Angels', an essential new album premiering twelve previously unreleased studio recordings completed by guitarist Jimi Hendrix. 'People, Hell and Angels' is available now, digitally, as part of Classic Rock Presents: Hendrix – People, Hell and Angels Collector's Pack, and as standalone physical releases on CD and LP.

'People, Hell and Angels' showcases the legendary guitarist working outside of the original Jimi Hendrix Experience trio. Beginning in 1968, Jimi Hendrix grew restless, eager to develop new material with old friends and new ensembles. Outside the view of a massive audience that had established The Experience as rock's largest grossing concert act and simultaneously placed two of his albums in the US Top 10 sales chart, Hendrix was busy working behind the scenes to craft his next musical statement.

These twelve recordings encompass a variety of unique sounds and styles incorporating many of the elements - horns, keyboards, percussion and second guitar - Jimi wanted to incorporate within his new music. 'People, Hell and Angels' presents some of the finest Jimi Hendrix guitar work ever issued and provides a compelling window into his growth as a songwriter, musician, and producer.

Jimi Fender Mosaic
The image of guitar legend Jimi Hendrix has been re-created with 4,000 Fender plectrums and went on public display on Monday. The mosaic was created by Manchester artist Ed Chapman who was commissioned by the guitar maker to mark the release of a new album of studio material by Hendrix.

The Hey Joe icon, who died at the age of 27 in London, has been immortalised in the plectrum portrait, which measures 105 x 80cm and was unveiled at the launch of the new album 'People, Hell and Angels'.

Artist Ed said: "I was totally thrilled when I was called by Fender and asked to create my version of Jimi Hendrix's iconic image and it's a real honour. Jimi's sister. Janie L. Hendrix, will see it at the store and I'd love to hear her thoughts on the portrait. I usually work in ceramic tile, but plectrums are a great medium to create art and I hope they are a fitting tribute to an amazing musician."

Mr Chapman has been noted in the art world for his recognisable style which pushes the boundaries of mosaic work. He has also created portraits made from coins, glass, mobile phones and even sugar cubes which have been sold and displayed around the world.

The Hendrix portrait is on display at a special Hendrix ‘pop-up store’ in Ganton Street, Soho, West London, which will be open until April 12th to promote the new album and related Jimi merchandise. Also, in the basement of the shop, there are 'Jimi Hendrix Master Classes' by experts from the Fender guitar company.
