Event Information


Saturday 21 April 2018

It's that time of year again! 

We cannot wait for this years Record Store Day! Celebrating independent record shops internationally, with special one off releases, available for the first time 21st April - in-store only. As always we will be stocking (almost) all of the lovely limited edition records! We'll also have DJs providing the soundtrack to the queue and an afternoon of awesome live music in store!

In accordance with tradition, the staff will be up nice and early to bring the waiting queue tea, coffee + toast, and hand out lists.

We'll open at 8am and make our way through the queue! As with every year, we do adhere to the strict code of conduct which means the special releases are sold first come, first served on the day, and cannot be reserved.

You can view our list here, but please note it is subject to change up until the day - we'll try and keep you updated!

Providing a soundtrack to the morning will be DJ Malc (Soul expert) & DJ Rob Hague (from H-towns Rags n Wax!) followed by an afternoon of -free- live music!

1pm Rhi

2pm Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker

3pm Alex Francis

Rhi - Signed to London's Tru Thoughts label. Her fantastic debut 'Reverie' out for the 1st time on vinyl for RSD, purple vinyl (w/bonus remix track!) 'atmospheric, woozy beats, soft pads+slow clicks'. >>> Rhi

Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker - Signed to the mighty Rough Trade Records, the double BBC Folk Award nominees have just released 'Seedings All' to rave reviews! >>> Josienne & Ben

Alex Francis - Alex is somewhat of a local hero, and we're psyched he has agreed to come and play for us! Bringing his emotive blend of rock and soul, which has spurned an organic rise to prominence that few singer songwriter's have experienced. In 2016 Alex won the support of Time Out Magazine’s ‘Rising Stars’ artist programme and went on to collaborate with pop legend Melanie C on ‘Hold On’... what a great day this is shaping up to be! >>> Alex Francis

If you have any questions about the day, let us know! See you all soon!
