Record Store Day exclusive releases & vinyl sale
What's this Record Store Day thing?
It's about supporting independent record shops. We also like it to be about supporting the local music and arts scenes which the shop is a part of. Labels release exclusive records which can only be bought from participating independent record shops. More info on the Record Store Day website.
What time do you open on the day?
The shop will open at 8am. That's a lot earlier than usual.
Will you have all the exclusive releases?
We'll have as many as possible. We will definitely not have every single release, and the number we get of each item will depend on how many we order but also how many the distributors give us.
Will you have the Fred Perry RSD bags?
Yes! We'll have 20 of the limited edition Fred Perry/ Record Store Day record bags. Three artists have been commissioned especially to design the record bags, which will be gifted to the earliest queuers on Record Store Day morning.
How can I find out if you have any copies of the release(s) I want?
There's a link to our list at the top of this page.
While we hope to get all of this list, we are at the mercy of distribution companies and delivery companies. If you have more questions about the list, the easiest thing is to talk to us on Twitter or Facebook.
What time should I get there?
If you absolutely have to have a certain release, especially a popular one, we would recommend arriving well before 8am and joining/starting the queue. Every year people start queueing before the shop opens. A few people arrive hours before. There will likely be a queue for the first few hours the shop is open. With over 500 releases, a queue of even 50 people can all be after different items so don't worry. Many sought after records may still be available in the afternoon.
What's the system when the doors open?
We'll be in the shop from around 7am if you have any questions, just knock. Early on, the first person in the queue can make a list of their wants and we'll put those records behind the counter.
At 8am, we'll let as many people into the shop as we think is safe and comfortable. That's around 10-15 people. Then it's a one out, one in policy until the queue has gone.
Can I just pop in quickly and skip the queue? I only want one thing/I double parked/I need to be at work soon/etc
Can I reserve/preorder a release?
Sorry, the Record Store Day rules are first come first served, and only 1 copy per person of each release. Unfortunately we cannot reserve any releases for any customers.
Can I buy online afterwards?
We are allowed to sell any leftover RSD stock one week after the event. Please talk to us on Twitter or Facebook about anything you want that we might still have, and we can sell you it online from Saturday 28th April 2018.
You're having a sale?
Yes we are. We'll have huge discounts on the last remaining RSD stock from previous years. We'll also have loads of great deals on our normal stock of new and used records. We're open till 6pm.
