21st April : Record Store Day @ Mono/Monorail

(Thanks to James Cadden for the use of the picture!)

Not long now till Record Store Day 2012 and the fine, fine folks behind Monorail Music have assembled quite a list of entertainment.  From their recent mailout:

We will be opening at 9am prompt for brisk business but we'll be promoting a friendly, family vibe with home baking, children's activities, an art show, and live music from

Edwyn Collins (pop genius and Liberty approved illustrator/designer)
Linden (feat. Joe McAlinden formerly of Superstar and Groovy Little Numbers etc.)
Dead Flamingos (like Linden signed to Edwyn Collins' AED Records)
Organs Of Love (on Optimo's label)
Snowgoose (feat. Jim McCulloch formerly of The Soup Dragons, Dave McGowan from Teenage Fanclub etc. - their debut lp is launched on Record Store Day)
Human Don't Be Angry (former Arab Strap chap Malcolm Middleton's new guise)

Djs will be:

Keith McIvor (Twitch),
Stuart Braithwaite (Mogwai),
Gerard Love (Lightships / Teenage Fanclub)
Adele Bethel (Sons & Daughters)
The Brogues (Not Unloved)

Come on down, it's going to be amazing!

It's gonna be grand!  Thanks to everyone at Monorail for giving me the chance to drop some carefully selected vinyl on their turntables.  I feel like I've been capped at international level :)  If I'm on early doors when people will be excitedly chatting about their lovely purchases, this is almost certain to get a spin as its giddiness perfectly embodies the excitement of buying a new record:
