Record store

14/04/2011

Apparently it’s Record Store Day on Saturday – so maybe you should visit one before they cease to exist! Caren posted a poignant link of all the closing down record stores.

Thanks to those of you who commented on my last post in order to win a book. It’s so lovely to kind of meet you! You still have one more day to comment if you want to win a copy of my book, Dead People’s Music.

    Hey, that was so quick! Those blog posts just pour out of you like magic, don’t they. You and your Morrissey obsession Sarah Laing…

    When I was young and cool(ish) in the 80s I used to buy a lot of records out of import bins. Expensive it may have been, but worth it, particularly for its coolness value. And today, I can’t even remember when or how I got rid of my record collection!

    I’d also like to point out that I am definitely not the woman in the pic in Sarah’s link to me, but rather the author of the entry.

    oh, yeah, that Morrissey gig at the St James in Welly was something else… as close to Beatlemania as I’ve ever got. I loved how he ran up and posed on the speaker stacks during ‘The Last of the International Playboys’… and it really seemed as though he was. The band were young and Stray Catsy, which seemed to make him young again, too. And, yes, I still recall him tearing off a string vest to throw to the crowd. And he was funny. I hate how detractors paint him as a dreary miserablist when he had/has such a great sense of humour. My all time fave line – “And now I know how Joan of Arc felt, as the flames rose to her Roman nose and her walkman started to melt” – genius!
