Praise for Record Store Day

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!

    It's definitely great to see that there is still such great support for vinyl. There are a few local bands here that only release vinyl albums and a few of the clubs use vinyl records as well. Hopefully, you'll be able to track down those singles that you missed with little trouble.

    Thanks, madtyger.

    Managed to track down the White Flag 10" with the help of a friend.

    Hypnotic Brass have also just released some new material through Honest Jons on vinyl only: Heritage
