  • Record Store Day 2012

    Posted on 2012/04/20 by Ossie


    The Queen's Official Birthday of record shop days.
    The only day of the year when people still queue for records.

    Below is a list of everything we have received from our dear distributing friends as of 20:46 on Friday the 20th April 2012. We may well get a few more bits in the morning. We have outstanding orders.

    If you're planning to be out standing in the rain tomorrow morning outside our Crouch End shop then they should have most of this list too but a couple of things, which we only received one of, will only be in the big mummyshop in Essex Road.

    Don't forget our Stackridge instore at Crouch End at 2pm and Essex Road's Fair Ohs instore at 7pm. By seven we ought to be dead on our feet and needing a beer. So that's what we'll have.

  • Record Store Day - Appreciation

    Posted on 2012/04/19 by Ossie

    So this Saturday is Record Store Day.
    It's meant to be a day all about appreciating the remaining independent record shops and giving them a day's sales boost. It's a nice idea and the surrounding press it generates feels good. It's good to have the job you do remembered.
    What with all the hype focusing on the exclusive RSD releases that the labels put out, and the queues to get them, it's easy to forget about just enjoying a day of record shopping.

    Mila and Johnny Douglas and Callum Robertson made this Flashback model card for their Dad/Uncle James's birthday. I love that the kids associate our shop so much with James that they made this card. It is just the best. They even got the top of the green fly and the green skull man. We love it.
