We are delighted to announce that for the first time we are teaming up with Chameleon to bring you Record Store Day.
Record Store Day is an international celebration of the unique culture of independent record shops and the art of vinyl. The event is split over two drops – 12th June and 17th July – with nearly 540 releases made up of the usual delirious mix of essential, obscure and downright weird albums and records that you don’t want to miss out on.
Some highlights to look out for in this year’s list include Sottish indie acts: Belle & Sebastian, Garbage, Mogwai and Primal Scream. Also included are Record Store Day regulars such as: The Cure, The Doors, Gorillaz, Lou Reed, Ocean Colour Scene, Supergrass, U2 and The Who.
Indie favourites from Durutti Column, Elastica, Fontaines DC, Suede and Bernard Butler. Two long out of print Steely Dan albums, live sets from Love, Echo & The Bunnymen, The Police, The Sisters of Mercy and Tears for Fears.
And - if that wasn’t enough! – there is heaps of metal and heavy rock releases from AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Def Leppard, Motorhead and MSG as well as jazz, blues and soul titles from Amy Winehouse, Aretha Franklin, Miles Davis, Albert Collins, Donny Hathaway and Ann Peebles.
So, grab yourself a cuppa or a nice beer and have a read through this year’s releases.
Make a list of the stuff you’re interested in and send it our way by the end of the month and we’ll do our best to have the right stuff in our stores on the two drop days.
