Totally Unicorn with no shirts! For Record Store Day!

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’.

 

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.

Elton John!  Announced first ever Worldwide Record Store Day Legend + 17.11.70 limited release

Elton John! Announced first ever Worldwide Record Store Day Legend + 17.11.70 limited release

We are extremely proud to announce Sir Elton John as the first ever worldwide Record Store Day Legend. Elton will release his incredible live album ‘17.11.70+’ on Record Store Day, April 22, 2017. Here he is talking about his love of record shops, his love of vinyl and lifelong record collecting habits.

‘Happy 10th birthday to Record Store Day. I love record stores, I can go to the record store in Vegas and spend 3 hours in there. Just the smell of it, the looking at it, the wonder of it, the memories. I love vinyl so much; the tactile nature, the ritual of it, looking at the sleeve…especially with the old albums and the liner notes – who played on them, the process of putting it on, the needle going on and the sound coming out. And it DOES sound better, I know it does! It’s just the wonder of having vinyl’. Elton John

Limited Edition Tom Iansek album for RSD

Limited Edition Tom Iansek album for RSD

The global citizens who manage Pieater release records, manage bands and use the love of music to do good in the world. To keep the love-ball rolling into Record Store Day, they are releasing the very first (semi-secret) Tom Iansek album.

Back in 2009 Tom was learning the craft of writing songs and recording them himself. Armed with a 4 track mixer and one microphone, he wrote/produced/mixed under the moniker Small Time Hero “Top of the Tree” LP, to zero fanfare, zero acclaim, but for personal & artistic growth.

Now we all get a chance to hear where his musical journey began, before Big Scary and #1 Dads.

It’s limited to 500 12” Vinyl copies, so get in contact with your favourite record store to grab one on RSD before they’re snapped up.

Peter Black: SAD and instore at Tym Guitars

Peter Black: SAD and instore at Tym Guitars

Says Tym Guitars:  

In 2016 Peter Black embarked on a project most sane people would say was an impossible, insane quest for a person in several functioning bands, holding down a day job and having a life. He decided he was going to record a song a day, every day of the year.
These weren’t just “sit in a room and strum mindlessly” acoustic songs but crafted, honed and thought out songs in many different genres and styles. Some are acoustic, some are heavy with a full band. There’s pop, there’s noise. There’s punk, there’s … disco. The variety of styles is mind boggling.

For RSD2017 Blackie and I got together to release something on vinyl and I thought I was going to have to sift through 365 songs (of which I’d already heard most) to hone down to 2 songs for a special 7″. In typical Blackie style he says “I had songs left over ’cause I ran out of days” …… I asked Blackie to pick his favourite so he sent me the details (day and month of recording) and a “leftover” unreleased song that he really wanted out there. I then sat down for days going through 363 songs to pick 2 I wanted.
I was trying not to set a genre for the EP but instead find 4 completely different songs that fitted together and could be cut into a 7″ piece of vinyl.

So, here it is. Out on Tym records for RSD2017 on limited edition 4 song 33 RPM 7″, the Peter Black S.A.D EP featuring 4 songs recorded across a mammoth year of recording.

If you haven’t listened to Blackies S.A.D project I highly recommend spending some time getting acquainted with it. It’s a lot of work but then, it was for Blackie to do, and is as rewarding for the listener as it was for the songwriter to achieve.

Blackie is playing at Tym guitars on April 22nd to celebrate the release of this EP and RSD2017 along with Kim Salmon (and band), FOREVR, Brief Habits, Leavings and Andrew Tuttle. It’s all FREE and ALL AGES so come along and grab your copy and watch some great live music.
