Just a quick reminder about Record Store Day, as if you didn’t know, which takes place this Saturday April 17th.
The list of exclusive items that will be available from participating stores on the day is a huge, ever growing thing indeed. You’ll have read much ado in the press about Blur’s brand new single for example, a limited edition of 1,000 on 7″, Sonic Youth, Elvis Costello, Crystal Castles, White Lies, LCD Soundsystem and even some band called The Beatles have got in on the act.
Piccadilly Records, Vibes Records and now X-Records will be stocking some of the special one-off releases but remember they won’t have all of it, and what they have got will be super limited and first come, first served.
Piccadilly have posted full details on their website here, and will also have guest DJs, Cakes, free promo CDs, badges and other goodies. They also promise to give some lessons in how to use a turntable properly! I shall be putting forward our man Carl for that one given the amount of styli he gets through!
Some of the other local shops are also promising special offers and so forth too, so it’ll be worth getting around as many as you can to find out what’s going on.
We’ve prepared a handy, portable version of the website with a list of all the other shops too so you can plan a days crate-digging. Click here to get it. Have a great day!
