Jake Bugg  #BuggHunt

What Doesn't Kill You  Limited Edition White Label 7" vinyl (500 only produced)


LEWKS were one of the very few lucky selected Independent Record Stores to be allocated some very limited edition numbered 7" vinyl of Jake Bugg's new single 'What Doesn't Kill You'. So we did a 'Bugg Hunt' for 6 lucky customers to find and win a FREE copy of this very limited edition 7" vinyl.

Here's what happened - we hid on a different day each week for 6 weeks the CD pictured below, and the first person to find it each week got themselves one of the FREE 7" singles. It was as easy as that. Winners pictured below:
