This year we are doing things slightly differently, we like to think of it as a party in the shop…all about records!
And so, we cordially invite you to our Record Store Day 2019 celebration held in our humble shop…
*Limited Signed Prints will be available to purchase on the day*
100 gifts for the first 100 people (believe us, we have some crackers to give away) Pie’s created by the artists appearing live & Beer served all day with DJ’s and live acts while you shop.
We are also open a bit later, if you are planning to tour various record shops.
Join us, as we celebrate physical format music and Independent record shops!
Set times in the shop are as follows!
|Marry Waterson & Emily Barker||2pm|
|Jim Jones And The Righteous Mind||3pm|
London’s very own brazen popstar GIRLI announce her debut album Odd One Out, due on 5th April via PMR/Virgin EMI. The highly anticipated debut album ‘Odd One Out’ was co-written by GIRLI with various collaborators such as Fast Friends and MNDR / Peter Wade (Charli XCX, Brooke Candy) written and recorded in Los Angeles. ‘Odd One Out’ follows from GIRLI’s Hot Mess EP and features fan favourites Day Month Second, Hot Mess and Young. The 8-track album marks the new mature alt-pop sound from GIRLI. Drawing inspiration from real life experiences ‘Odd One Out’ explores identity and the difficulties of adolescence. Released and available in the shop on record store day on Pink Heavyweight LP.
Channel Noir – 1:00pm
Our Surprise Special Guest is the Portsmouth collective – Channel Noir.
Some of Portsmouth’s most notorious and important artists combine to record a musical response to ‘Brexit’. An important artistic message from our fair city, to the rest of the British isles and to the continent we are leaving (possibly the day before RSD).
We felt it was important to preview and highlight this on record store day, however you feel about it.
The Channel Noir release, contains 4 bands: Curl, Fake Empire, The Music Liberation Front Sweden, Torpedoes.
We’ll be selling the HIGHLY limited EP ‘Un’ on record store day. Check out the promo below.
Marry Waterson & Emily Barker – 2:00 pm
English folk royalty meets Australian soul in this new collaboration between Marry Waterson & Emily Barker; an album of fly-on-the-wall observations of the contradictions and disconnections of modern life.
No strangers to collaboration, Waterson and Barker discovered an immediate kinship when they started writing together. The intriguing combination of Waterson’s poetic lyrics and Barker’s eclectic musicality has been shaped in the studio by musical polymath Adem Ilhan. Don’t miss this!
Jim Jones And The Righteous Mind – 3:00pm
Hot on the heels of 2018’s successful reunion with garage-psych testifiers Thee Hypnotics, singer/guitarist Jim Jones returns to give 2019 the kick-start that it so urgently needs with his current band, Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind, and the release of their incendiary second album, CollectiV.
Rising from the ashes of The Jim Jones Revue, Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind paint from a broader sonic palette. Incorporating elements of chain gang chants, mutant soul and gospel, and psychedelia, Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind are fervent torchbearers for rock’n’roll at its most primal, feral and elemental. A special stripped back set worked out exclusively for this in store show! We are not worthy!
Tom Speight is a singer and songwriter from London, England. Blending elements of folk, contemporary pop, and intimate singer/songwriter fare, he made his recording debut with the self-released Falling EP in mid-2016. Another EP, Love, followed in late 2016. That same year, three songs he co-wrote with indie folk-rockers Turin Brakes appeared on the band’s seventh LP, Lost Property.
Speight followed up with three more EPs in 2017, all featuring production by Chris Bond (Ben Howard, Justin Nozuka) and guest spots by Turin Brakes and vocalist Lydia Clowes. Willow Tree arrived in March of 2017, with My My My following in July and Waiting finishing out the year in December. In the meantime making multiple passes through the U.K. on tour, he was also featured on BBC Radio and racked up more than 20 million plays on streaming sites before the end of the year. Buy his debut LP in the store this day!

About the poster artist Tim Hall…
WHEN Tim Hall decided to have a go at creating his own comic, he had no idea just what a huge task he was taking on.
A professional artist and fan of comic books and metal music, he came up with the idea of creating a couple of test pages of a Vikingthemed story.
Three years and more than three thousand hours later, volume one of Skragbeard and the Vikings – Escape from Helheim is on the shelves.
Tim has always spent his time sketching. After university he worked in advertising and thinks this has honed his interest in creating art for a reason rather than for its own sake.
