Record Store Day 2014

Music geeks unite

Adam Ant by LunixKing
On the countdown to Record Store Day 2014 the most committed of us have already started making way-too-long lists of what we just have to purchase (at a special price for the day) and all the record shops we need to visit, in the hopes that the queues won't be too long (fat chance) and we actually get to catch a good in-store, or a rare RSD release.
I have my eyes set, pretty predictably, on Soho's Sister Ray for live Adam Ant and Edwyn Collins (those, plus Slowclub will also join Rough Trade West) - and then I'll pretty much head towards any open record store in sight (luckily, the area has a few).
Go prepared, with good coffee, agony snacks and a friend with diametrically opposite music taste along (speaking from experience - I still can't get over that rare Nick Cave/Lydia Lunch live release my friend bagged, within seconds, right before my eyes).
Shop with your ears, a bit of your eyes and your occasional deaf-dumb-and-blind faith to your favourite childhood band.
May the weather and the queues be favorable..
