I love owning physical music but fucks sake. Record Store Day. Imagine queueing up for a shop to open first thing of a morning and rushing in to get your favourites before someone else does. It's bad enough seeing people pathetically run for the Victoria line but this shite is another level.

Can't be fucked with that, but I might pop down Mono at teatime to see the band whose release I'm interested play it live.

Our boy kept it civil as ever, but he did blow off a little steam, at least:

Noel says it's nice to go through somebody's record collection, too.

"If you were on a date or you'd just met someone, you could have a peak at their collection and think 'Oh, this isn't going to work'."

Maybe that's why all his ideas since 2006 have been so crap. You stand to get a lot further in life if you can learn to bond through differences and shared experiences. I bet he's the first one to mama-bird his personal tastes down the necks of party guests as well.

Yeah that's right Noel I'm calling you out mate

To celebrate Record Shop (Please) Day every year I go to my local branch of HMV and buy a Big Bang Theory T Shirt.

Aw, this is really cute. For some reason I reacted to your plight when you first mentioned it so I'm pleased you were rewarded!

Ha! Thank you.
I've been literally distraught and I think she sensed it. So much so that she got an early train home from Edinburgh so she'd make the record shop before it closed.

The King by Teenage Fanclub.

Bought, but only because the completest in me needed it.
It's unlistenable dirge for the most part.

Fucking hate record 'store'* day...

I rolled up to Stranger Than Paradise at about 1pm expecting to see empty shelves and destruction everywhere but there was loads left and I got "Trout Mask Replica" without having to queue or fight. Hoorah.

Happened to catch a little bit of Gilles Petersen on Radio 6 on Saturday... he was saying that one of his favourite record shops actually SHUTS on Record Shop Day, and that was a stance towards the thing he 'understood'.

Fucking hell.

I went into my local indie record shop on Saturday afternoon to have a look at the RSD stuff just out of curiosity.

Plenty of stock left.  Not surprisingly, this included a 7" picture disc of 'Margate' by Chas n' Dave that they were asking £21.99 for, and the soundtrack to 'The Cable Guy' which was a snip at £44.99.

I mean, fuck off.

Yeah, so do I. It's quite ungratifying to see all these supposedly cool indies who 'just love music' bending over backwards and accepting all the shit that goes with RSD. Whilst I appreciate that times are tough and I do spend a lot of time in small independent record shops, if your business model relies on hawking Baby Shark picture discs and Police double packs for nearly 20 quid then maybe you're in the wrong business. Fuck the labels, fuck your Dinked editions and fuck your Shit For Cunts RSD.

As an aside, my local shop stashes my wants and I'm off to collect them later today. :)
