I’ll probably give record store day a miss this year. My dislike of queuing and sheer lack of independent record shops where I am this weekend makes it very hard for me to take part. Plus there’s not much I really want from the list (a Kate Bush 12″ and Wedding Present ep sung in German were the only things that interested me) and I go to record stores all the time anyway. I don’t need to be told by BBC 6Music to go. So I shouldn’t feel guilty.
I’ve been a bit cynical about RSD in the past, seeing it as a just a day when record collectors and eBay touts all turn up at once and crowd the place out. As an average punter it would put me off, frankly. And surely that’s not what RSD is about?
I did like this, though. And thanks to Every Record Tells a Story for pointing it out.
