Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Right before people die, they usually say their goodbyes to the people they love. But now some British folks might have one last wish: "turn me into a record, please."

For £2,000, you can ensure that your ashes will be sprinkled into the vinyl, according to Consequence of Sound. A record can be made with all the information on the label that would typically go on your gravestone. You can choose to have music put on the record by the artist of your choice (and I hope you don't choose Creed), or perhaps you'd rather have your will recorded. There's even an option to have a song written about you. Talk about "sick new tunes."

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
