RECORD STORE DAY, LONDON

May 09, 2017

RECORD STORE DAY, LONDON

At Gents of London, music is vital to the vibe of our barbershop, so Record Store Day is something that is right up our street. For those of you not in the know, it's a day in the year when independent record shops throw their doors open to celebrate all things vinyl.

There are live performances, and some record shops even sell exclusive limited edition prints, from bands including the Cure, David Bowie, Ken Boothe, the Smiths and plenty more of the great music we champion in the barbershop.

It's fast becoming one of the biggest days in the musical calendar with it taking off all over the globe too. Listening to a record is a different experience than digital. You sit back, and you listen to a whole 12 songs without skipping anything, you have a sleeve to hold with pictures/song titles/lyrics and most importantly, it just sounds better. If you don't own a turntable, it would be a great time to invest, if not, still head down and soak up the atmosphere.

Locally participating stores:

Flashback Records: 50 Essex Road, London, N1 8LR

Clerkenwell Music: 27 Exmouth Market, London, EC1R 4QL

Love Vinyl: 5 Pearson, London, E2 8JD

Here's a list of the Gents team favourite albums, if you're after suggestions:

Pete's choice: Handsome Boy Modeling School 

Bradley's choice: Definitely Maybe, Oasis

Greg's choice: While She Sleeps, The North Stands for Nothing

 

Sammy's choice: Aha Shake Heartbreak, Kings of Leon


Adam: Madvillain, Madvillainy

Dylan: MTV Unplugged in New York, Nirvana
