Black Friday 2019 at Pie&Vinyl

Record Store Day Black Friday
29th November 2019

Record Store Day Black Friday returns this year with the release of a list of limited edition records available in independent record shops all across the UK. 

Since 2010, organisers of April’s world famous celebrations of independent record shops, Record Store Day, have worked to shift the culture of Black Friday. Moving away from the mass-produced, low as you can go event, Record Store Day Black Friday instead concentrates on offering music fans a selection of exclusive and special releases that highlight how great shopping in record shops can be. It’s also a great way to kick off the Christmas gifting season, offering customers the opportunity to get something unique for their friends and family this holiday. 

Artists such as Lizzo, Lewis Capaldi and U2 are celebrating this year’s Black Friday event with limited edition runs of one-off pressings that are only available from independent record shops on 29th November.

These are the titles making their way to UK record shops. There may be more added over the next few weeks so please check back.

To help give us an idea of what you would like, please e mail recordstoreday@pieandvinyl – and add ‘Black Friday‘ in the subject header.

We will also confirm the price with you at that point, whilst making sure that the releases you’d like to order will be available on the day.

See the official release list HERE *which now includes pricing!* (and has grown significantly, please check it out)

Cassette Store Day 2019 at Pie&Vinyl

Cassette Store Day returns for its seventh year on 12 October 2019! The annual event which celebrates the beloved rectangular format is run by three record labels independently: Blak Hand Records (UK) Burger Records (USA) and Side-B Creations (JP). 

Founded in London by a group of labels in 2013, Cassette Store Day saw a thriving demand and to the surprise of its founders has grown into a highly anticipated event happening all around the world in places like China, France, Indonesia, Australia, Hungary and Canada. 

Cassette Store Day has had releases over its short history from the likes of The White Stripes, Green Day, Ramones, The Flaming Lips, Courtney Barnett and Motörhead. “Over the last year the growth of cassettes has been really impressive. Cassette Store Day 2018 had over 300 releases worldwide and we have an amazing group of labels involved this year in the UK.” says CSD UK Manager Brit Williams. “Sean at Burger, Takamasa at Side-B and I start emailing each other every Spring to get preparations in order and it’s so great to see them come up with ideas to make it bigger and better year after year. The cassette boom in the USA and Japan is phenomenal! It’s our seventh year running Cassette Store Day and the DIY tape community is really strong. Everyone wants to help out the creatives around them and get involved to celebrate.”

Jim Jones And The Righteous Mind3pm
Tom Speight6pm

Girli 12:00pm

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

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.
