Really Shit Day more like


#22

need:
-Rush - Cygnus X-1 EP.


#23

Every day is record store day!

Having said that, I probably won't go. Certainly won't queue up. Probably stroll in at 4 and buy a Slayer CD.


#24

Fucking bastard Flaming fucking Lips are releasing another fucking RSD record. Going to have to buy that.*

*Six months after RSD when my local shop haven't shifted it and will flog it to me for half-price.


#25

Just another day to be reminded how big a twat Peter Hook is


#26

Well up for the animal collective release

30+ minutes of new live material recorded in Brazil, go on then


#27

don't think i've bought an RSD release since a 7" in 2013. there are always a couple of things i'm mildly interested in but unwilling to pay the ridiculous price. had a really good day last year though as a record shop in town put together a great instore gig all day, so hoping for a repeat of that.


#29

I do like the idea of it - getting people to independent stores on a special day etc (though most of us go plenty already) with special instore performances etc - plus it draws attention to independent retailers

BUT the whole special unique releases are usually pretty lukewarm (woah ho! Kasabian 10"!) - and the gouging that goes on ebay and the like straight away really irks me


#30

I've seen both the Manics and Placebo have said they are releasing records for the day, but neither of them are on the official list.


#31

I think some people get confused about the purpose of record store day. It's literally just a cash grab for record stores with the intention of some of the people going being repeat customers. It shouldn't be a surprise that it's essentially just limited edition releases by mainstream artists


#32

Saw the Manics one on the list. It's a 12" single of Your Love Alone. 10th Anniversary or sutin.


#33

It's also a cash grab for eBay mercenaries.


#34

Ah, ok. I couldn't see on the pdf lost that is on the RSD website.


#35

The problem with that is that its such a horrible experience. Queueing up outside in the rain for 2 hours, cramped inside so you can't move around and peruse, the store you go to never got in what you wanted because it was a super limited release and the store only has Little Mix picture discs left for 5 times the price you would pay any other day.


#36

Probably ask my local store to order in The Heads reissue but thats about it.

Local shop has a good policy of if you're a regular he'll try and order you what you want from the list but otherwise doesn't bother.

It's more of a cash grab for the labels not the stores, as the price is so high originally that in my experience they can only add a little mark up to keep it approaching anything like a decent price.

Luckily for stores and labels there are a lot of idiots around willing to pay stupid money for stupid records - you just have to see the hmv vinyl section to realise that.


#37

Just looked through the entire list. Pretty meh. Laura Marling live would be good for fans. Though I don't know enough to know if it's already been out. Sugar - Copper Blue repress with a live show seems nice, but again, I think the concert has been done before going by comments on other places.


#38

Ta, I might have a quick look into Spin in Aberdeen to see if they have that Copper Blue release. I only ever had it on CD and it deserves to be bought on record.


#39

Yep. I relistened to that and Beaster recently for the first time in a long, long time. Hold up really well to be honest. I loved them both at the time, and sometimes going back is a little disappointing.

I'd be interested in hearing this
