  • Our bestselling artists of 2011

    Posted on 2012/01/06 by Ossie

    2011 has been another record (no pun intended) year at Flashback. In April, Record Store Day helped us to our best week since we opened, some 14 years ago, and we almost matched it in the run up to Christmas. November and December takings were up almost 20% on the year before. Vinyl is dead?

    Our Top 40 selling artists of 2011 are mostly the established titans of 60s and 70s music, but with our expansion into selling new vinyl alongside second hand you can see some fresher faces creeping in. Continue reading

  • Red Horses Of The Snow Review in Vice Magazine

    Posted on 2011/10/29 by Mark

    Vice Magazine Vol 9, Issue 10 - Music Reviews

    8/10 RED HORSES OF THE SNOW -Territories. Flashback Records. Released Dec 5th

    Somewhere deep inside you there is an unbroken 12-year-old who has been waiting all his life for this album that references the melancholy expansiveness of late Talk Talk, Ocean Rain by Echo & the Bunnymen and the classicist Shoegaze of Besnard lakes. He will love it as much as he loves walking through the snow in a long coat thinking about the girl he saw on the bus but didn't speak to. WARNING: If you cannot locate this inner innocent child/man, you will want to smash this fucking record with a cricket bat.

  • New Bevis Frond Album

    Posted on 2011/09/28 by Mark

    On October 10th, The Bevis Frond releases the first album for seven years. Entitled, "The Leaving of London", it continues on from where Hit Squad left off in 2004. Packed full of memorable tunes, it showcases all of the great things about the Bevis Frond: a sharp turn of lyrics, some great guitar work, some folky moments, some guitar wig-outs - it's all there for the discerning Bevis Frond fan. What distinguishes this album most of all in my opinion, is that the production is top notch. Added to that, I think it is Nick's most complete album since maybe New River Head, showcasing all the things we love about the Bevis Frond. It's released on October 10th and you can get the Vinyl and CD from  our online store.
