Doug speaks : we can officially announce it. On Record Store Day Australia ( this Saturday) Blackburn Dixons is proud to announce that we’ve got live music from none other than Miles Brown! Yup, the head Night Terror will be plugging in at 2pm, and amazing us all with his other-worldly electronica and incredible theremin skills. I’m really looking forward to this one – I’ve seen the Night Terrors a couple of times ( guesting with Goblin and Hawkwind – you were there, right?) and they really are unique.
You want more? Okay then. With massive thanks to Kate from IT Records (http://it-records.com.au/ ) We’ll also have copies of Mile’s debut 7inch for sale. That’s also on top of the fact that Dixons will be having a MASSIVE 20% off everything sale (apart from new vinyl!) and we’re hoping to have a lot of exclusive World Record Store Day releases for sale too. Wow! That almost beats chowing down on chocolate and buns!!
See you there!
