The lists!

The lists!

In response to requests for ‘the list’ here are some lists. In Australia we don’t have one list to rule them all.  We have lots of lists plus we have lots of individual releases from small indie labels and small indie bands. The lists here are .. well .. lists.  They don’t include the individual releases.  If we know about the individual releases they are in the website listed under Specials. We don’t always get told about individual releases, so not all of them may be here. Yes, I know …

Anyway, lists! Check the pages before printing .. some are long.

What an amazing day!

Once again a totally amazingly awesome day.  Huge thanks to everyone who contributed. This was truly a day when everyone came together to enjoy and celebrate the indie record store. Record labels, artists, indie store owners and staff, sponsors such as the wonderful Pro-Ject turntables, and of course you … the music loving public. Without you, where would we all be????

Oh and not forgetting us in the AMRA office, running Record Store Day each year. We love it!

David Chesworth at Multisonics, Thornbury, Melbourne

The amazing David Chesworth is at Multisonics in Thornbury, recreating material from his 1979 album 50 Synthesiser Greats, which has just been re-pressed on vinyl by Chapter Music. He will be using the same equipment that he used on his dining table all those years ago: an Akai reel to reel tape records and an early Kong synth – the K700 miniKorg.

David Chesworth is an Aussie legend, a pioneer of electronic music.

Oh and they’re having a lucky door prize for all the early birds too. Shaping up to be a beauty! Big focus on the actual Record Store Day releases for Abicus this year…. having said that they are stocked to the brim with a cracking selection of vinyl and books right now.

Love the way these guys have got into the spirit of Record Store Day and their PINK album launch. Check out the little dog that just wanders out of shot … you can imagine it’s thinking ‘forgotten to put half their clothes on again? I’m outta here’.

 

John Schumann talks indie record stores

John Schumann talks indie record stores

John Schumann of RedGum and John Schumann and the Vagabond Crew dropped into Songland Records in Canberra recently. Check out the video here.  He’s then emailed again to wish us a great day and make this comment:

“I remember when your record store owner was as important in your life as your butcher. Still is, but good record stores are thin on the ground. These days I get heaps of frustrated emails all the time from people who want to buy my records but can’t find them. I send them to Frog at Songland. Why? Because he owns a record store, knows what he’s talking about and stocks my catalogue. We make them, he sells them. It’s a good arrangement. Happy Record Store Day, Australia! 🎙🎧🎼🎸”

Thanks for him for his support too!
