  • Record Store Day 2013

    Posted on 2013/04/19 by Mark

    Record Store Day

    Tomorrow, Saturday the 20th of April is Record Store Day 2013.

    Not only will we have FREE BISCUITS as in previous years but we'll also have FREE BADGES and GUEST DEEJAYS to edutain whilst you get your browz on.

    Yes indeed, we've a crack team of vinyl junkies assembled to (metaphorically) whistle while we work. Bob Stanley of Saint Etienne and music enthusiasm fame, will be kicking things off at 12 noon. He'll hand over to magnetic tape archeologist, Jonny Trunk of Trunk label fame, at 1pm. After that, around half two, we'll have former Rocker in Chief of the Times and general General of music journalism, Pete Paphides. He might be playing records exclusively sourced from our pound bin. Not sure. Next up on the Murphy Meteor (pictured below) is Liam Large of the Jukebox Jam night and record label. To finish things off, when the staff are on their last legs, we'll let one of them, Duke Murphy no less, play some of his own records.

    The Murphy Meteor


    Oh, the EXCLUSIVE RELEASES? Yeah, we've got somes of those...

    Here's the full list of what we have received. We'll have all of it in our Essex Road shop and very much almost all of it in our Crouch End store, only missing the things we got a paltry 1 of (They're mostly pretty niche).

    10am opening.

    Without further ado.

  • HMV - A Statement By ERA (Entertainment Retailers Association)

    Posted on 2013/01/15 by Mark

    ERA Statement on HMV

    January 15th 2013

    Director General Kim Bayley said:

    “No one can say this is a surprise, but it is still a shock. HMV has been part of the fabric of the music and entertainment business for decades. But there are signs that this may not be the end of the story.
    “It would be wrong to underestimate the affection which HMV is held by consumers and the determination of music and video companies to see HMV survive in some form.
    “We know there is consumer demand – in a poll last year HMV was ranked in the Top 10 of the stores people most want to see on their High Street. Data suggests they generated 170 million in-store visits last year and another 40 million online.
    “At the same time both music and video companies are painfully aware of the consequences of losing a retailer responsible for around a third of UK physical music and video sales. We have to hope they will not stand by and watch HMV go down.
    “There has been much misinformation published in the past 24 hours about the relative strength of physical and digital entertainment formats. Physical formats like CDs and DVDs still account for three quarters of the entertainment market. In other words HMV going from the high street is in the interests neither of consumers nor of suppliers.
    “For their part, our members – although competitors of HMV – have been quick to express their support.
    “We believe it is possible for the administrators to rescue something out of this situation. There is a precedent that you can streamline your costs and in particular the number of stores a chain trades from and still retain the bulk of sales – that’s precisely what happened with Game.
    “There is clearly is a viable business model for an entertainment retailer on the UK High Street. It is up to the administrators now to do their job and take the steps necessary to make it possible.”
