  • Flashback features in Yell Ad

    Posted on 2011/02/06 by Mark

    Back before the days of mobile phone apps and digital downloads, there was a quaint TV ad for Yellow Pages concerning the search of one man for a copy of a book he wrote many years before - "Fly Fishing" by JR Hartley.

    Now Yell have updated this ad to feature a DJ looking for a record he made many years before. A couple of scenes in the Ad were filmed in Flashback - see if you can spot them!

    Gig poster

    On Friday, January the 28th from about 7:30pm in our Essex Road store we will have the pleasure of friend-of-the-shop and all round stand up chap Marmaduke Dando.

    "...distinctively haunting..." - Steve Lamacq, BBC6 Music

    He'll be playing selections from his newly minted debut album 'Heathcliffian Surly', which is in fact available on REAL VINYL in the shop in advance of the gig. In case you want to learn the words.

    "Depressing. I had to put some Leonard Cohen on to cheer myself up" - Tom Logan, Devonshire

    We'll be setting some beers out for those beer fans amongst you, so come down and browse our packed racks before the set and we'll share our bag of peanuts.

    Check Marmaduke Dando out on myspace. Very nice huh?

    See you there. Here.

  • XMAS INSTORE with FAIR OHS

    Posted on 2010/12/07 by Kev

    Fair Oh Ho Ho Ho?

    Yes thee mighty Fair Ohs are gracing us with a special first for them: they never did do no acoustic performance before. But IT'S CHRISTMAS. It is, and so the hyper afro-tinged-fresh-hardcore-bleeding-rhythmic-hard pop that Fair Ohs have made their very own, is, for one mistletoe teasing night only, swapped and stripped down to bare bones. Raw and warm but more than anything else F.U.N.

    FRIDAY 10TH DECEMBER 2010 from 7pm.

    KEEPING THE YULE COOL

    Flashback Radio Hour

    We are quite excited to present the first episode of our new regular Podcast.

    It's called Flashback Radio Hour. It's an hour long, we play songs in it and talk a bit and it might be a little quiet due to dodgy equipment, so turn it up load.

    We'll be doing a lot more of these and getting better at it but if you enjoyed this, or hated it, then get in touch with us on twitter (@flashbacklondon) or on Facebook or leave a comment on Soundcloud below.
