Established in 1997, Vinyl Revival is situated in the heart of the Northern Quarter, between Oldham Street and Tib Street. Always keen to blow Manchester’s trumpet, a good percentage of the shop is dedicated to local bands from the 60′s to the present day.
Vinyl Revival is the only record store in Manchester to have its own label, and for the fourth year running they’re putting out an official Record Store Day release this year: Booker T & The MG’s – ‘Green Onions’ 10” EP on green vinyl. Besides this, you’ll find a great deal of local bands on the shelves including The Courteeners, Blossoms and The Fall besides big RSD hitters like Bowie, The Rolling Stones and John Lennon.
You’ll also have the chance to catch an in-store acoustic set by up-and-coming Manchester band Dirty Laces. The five-piece have been winning a lot of praise recently for their raw, proto-punk tunes and high-energy live shows. It will be interesting to see how their belting, overdriven riffs translate within an acoustic setup!
The staff over at Vinyl Revival tell us that their top three Record Store Day releases this year are:
