A massive thanks to all the staff working in Record Store Day shops on Saturday and thanks also to those of you who queued to buy records and support your local stores.
It was pretty disappointing to see a handful of copies of the Mogwai / Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat 7” ending up on ebay but hopefully the majority of them went to people who wanted them. In case you missed out but still want to hear the tracks we’re streaming them via our soundcloud which you should be able to find here
Hope you all had a great day and remember that these stores stock great records every day, not just one Saturday in April so please keep supporting them.
