Record Store Day at Piccadilly Records, Manchester, 13 April 2019, free entry - Visit now

Since opening its doors in 1978, Piccadilly Records has well and truly woven itself into the fabric of Manchester’s music community. Located in prime position on Oldham Street, its shelves are stacked with a particularly forward-thinking array of records, spanning every genre from rock to leftfield electronica.

The shop holds the largest stock of Record Store Day releases in the city, with a handpicked selection of over 300 records this year (see the complete list here). These will be available behind the counter, and your best plan of action is to bring your ‘want’ list with you and simply hand it over. Warning: if it’s rarities that you’re after, then you’ll need to arrive nice and early. Last year’s queue started – almost bewilderingly – 24 hours prior to opening!

As well as having a huge amount of limited edition Record Store Day vinyl on offer, Piccadilly Records will also be hosting some very special in-store activity on the day. The DJ selection is particularly strong this year, featuring the likes of Jane Weaver, The Orielles and Tim Burgess. There will also be an exciting live set from former 808 State member, A Guy Called Gerald.

The staff over at Piccadilly Records tell us that their top three Record Store Day releases this year are:

  1. The Courteeners – Falcon
  2. Blossoms – Cool Like You
  3. The Charlatans – Everything’s Changed 7″ box set
