That's right. Alexander Tucker will grace our Essex Road store with a special instore performance on Saturday April 16th. And that day is Record Store Day. Which is a big deal for all of us. We're very excited. Not only will we have all kinds of exclusive Record Store Day-only releases alongside our goosebump enducing range of second hand vinyl, CDs and DVDs and our * NEW * NEW * 'New Vinyl' section (we just started stocking very cool new vinyl, seriously it's an amazing selection) but Alex will cap the day beautifully with a performance at 7pm sharp. Yes, sharp, so please arrive early if you can.
It doesn't end there. Alexander Tucker will be playing records at the after party at the Mucky Pup (right around the corner) 39 Queens Head Street, N1 8NQ.
Let's take Record Store Day in to the night.
If you don't know the Mucky Pup already then please know that the Mucky Pup is a brother in arms and has the best jukebox in London. That's a well known fact. And I think every single employee of flashback Records has been "pupped" at least once. It's a rite of passage thing.
Alexander Tucker's new album 'Dorwytch' is out on April 11th (Thrill Jockey) and yes we will certainly be stocking it. This record breaks new ground for Tucker by combining minimalist string arrangements with electronic manipulations and drones to produce doom chamber-pop songs and psychedelic music-concrete collages.
In addition to being a solo artist Tucker continues to collaborate with Daniel Beban in their tape loop project
Imbogodom (also on Thrill Jockey). Other bands include Grumbling Fur with members of Guapo and Circle. Past
collaborative projects include duets with Stephen O’Malley on his Ginnungagap side project. Tucker is also a visual
artist, creating artwork for all of his album covers and side projects, including ongoing paintings drawings, and comic artwork.
Dorwytch is a beautiful collection of songs, which show Alexander Tucker at the height of his creative talents. He
is capable of creating immense sounds on such a grand scale that it is astounding to realize that it is (mostly) all
the work of just one man. This album will beguile and entice the listener, placing Tucker at the forefront of the
experimental pop landscape.
Let's do this!
