Record Store Day 2018

Chris Horkan, Music Editor

Record Store Day brings together hundreds of the UK’s independent record shops to celebrate their unique culture and the art of music – with Manchester’s Piccadilly Records and Eastern Bloc at the forefront of the day’s activities.

Manchester-related releases this year include limited-editions by GoGo Penguin, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, The Courteeners and The Durutti Column. Participating shops often host live music and in-store events to celebrate the day.

Local independent venues including Common and Soup Kitchen support Record Store Day too, with live music and DJ showcases throughout the day and night.
