The VoxBox team invite Edinburgh’s music lovers, record fans and vinyl junkies to our shop in Stockbridge on Saturday 20th April to help us celebrate Record Store Day 2013.
Last year was a fantastic celebration and we are going bigger and better this year as we approach our 2nd anniversary in the music business.
We will have a much larger number of the exclusive records this time. Exact titles will be known nearer the day. But remember, it’s not really about the exclusive records. The shop will be open at 9.30am.
We are celebrating what we love. A wide selection of music! The vinyl format, the grass roots record industry, the local bands and record labels as well as our fantastic regular customers that give our shop such a positive feel and of course our wonderful street too.
We are proud to announce a fantastic line up of bands that will perform for us on the day between the shop and The Last Word Saloon down the road.
12.00-12.30 Wounded Knee
13.00-13.30 Magic Eye
14.00-14.30 eagleowl vs Kid Canaveral
15.00-15.50 Mike Heron Band
16.00-16.30 Rob St. John
17.30-18.00 Adam Stafford
* The Mike Heron Band
Music legend and founding member of Edinburgh’s Incredible String Band (the last known good quality ISB recording -Live at the Fillmore, 1968 is out now). The only Scottish band to play Woodstock. They will perform as a group and the individual group members will perform solo. They comprise:
– Mike Hastings of Trembling Bells/The Pendulums – Scotland’s finest psychedelic folk-rock guitarist.
– Georgia Seddon – Beautiful self penned golden voiced melancholy songs.
– Frog Pocket – Super-talented multi-instrumentalist and experimental folk-popster.
* Adam Stafford
Musician and filmmaker from Falkirk. Formerly of the group Y’all is Fantasy Island. He will perform songs from his forthcoming album Imaginary Walls Collapse and will have a limited edition cassette tape of more new songs (on Gerry Loves Records) which will be made especially for the day.
Two girls from Glasgow, who play songs about things they really hate and things that are okay. Nominated for Best Newcomer in the 2013 SAMA Awards. There is a real underground buzz about this talented twosome.
* Wounded Knee
Edinburgh’s finest vocal loopist. Drawing from a variety of influences his music ranges from stripped down folk balladry to abstract improvised vocalic stravaigs. Expect songs from the bawbag.
* eagleowl vs Kid Canaveral
Kate Canaveral and friends, promoting Kid Canaveral’s fantastic new album, Now That You Are A Dancer. No space, no capitals, eagleowl are a lo-fi post folk ensemble from Edinburgh.
* Rob St. John
Drawn-out and ghostly songs underpinned by the creaks and drones of the harmonium, musical saw, fiddle, skittering drums, analogue synth and field recordings.
* Magic Eye
Ethereal, dreamy pop songs with a beautifully jangly guitar shimmering alongside gorgeous vocals.
Any purchase in the shop will get you £2 off entry to Song, by Toad’s ‘Beer vs Records‘ gig at Summerhall that evening. We will be selling the brand new split LP featuring Magic Eye, Le Thug, Zed Penguin and Plastic Animals. Buy that and you get a stonking £4 off entry to the gig!
Remember to share this and invite your record fiend friends. It’s going to be a blast!
The Facebook event is here: http://www.facebook.com/events/159619074197662/
Be sure to check back for a list of the records we have been allocated – expected mid-late next week. Then it’s squeaky bum time.
With all that talent, there will be a series of beautiful moments throughout the day. That’s Mike on the right. Listen to this gorgeous tune!
Here is what we have.
Most titles are limited to one or two copies unless specified. We missed out on the best stuff form EMI due to a delay in opening an account and an early deadline. So there will be no Bowie, no Beta Band and no Pink Floyd. Anyway, it’s not really about the records…
