It was Record Store Day this year on Saturday, 17 April. And as the name suggests, it’s a day all about celebrating records and the independent stores that they are found in.
Though I had a very productive time indoors (working no less, while my housemates were out playing in the sunshine), I made no attempt to visit any of the handful of record stores still trading in Nottingham. A real shame, as a very limited number of Gorillaz’ ‘White Flag’ 10” vinyl singles were released as well as Blur’s ‘Fool’s Day’ 7” vinyl – the first new material the band has released as a four-piece since 2003.
Anyhow, I guess I’ll see what limited singles from Record Store Day I can salvage over time. I did however write a piece on vinyl for Platform that might interest follower lovers of vinyl. Enjoy and happy belated Record Store Day!
