Record Store Day 2017 at Pie&Vinyl – Rules & Tips for Fun Times – Please Read

For those who are new to Record Store Day, and a recap for those who treat the annual celebration as a type of Birthday/Christmas/Wedding Day all rolled in to one…please find some very important information on how we will roll on the big day.

Ok, we’ve called them rules but please see them as positives gestures, for everyone to have a really great Record Store day! Read on for a few tips also…

RSD RULES (Positive Gestures)

 

  • We will open our doors on the big day at 8am sharp. People are welcome to queue in an orderly fashion from approx. a week before then. We will close at 7pm.

 

  • First come first served. We really mean it. We adhere to RSD and ERA rulings, which state that we can’t reserve anything for anyone (Including animals and robots). Damn right too! What kind of cherished event would RECORD STORE DAY be if people could reserve records? You need to earn that LIMITED must have…this isn’t downloading, it doesn’t come easy but the rewards are totally worth it and you will feel like a champion! You can however request what you are after, which will help us order the correct amount of stock. Just email [email protected] – with your requests.

 

  • ONE COPY OF EACH OFFICIAL RSD RELEASE PER CUSTOMER. You can buy as many records as your bank manager allows, but please don’t try and purchase two or more of the same thing, as we will not sell them to you. This will mean everyone will have a chance to get what they want. From Sunday (the day after) The rules will be relaxed, any stock left and in any quantity will be up for grabs.

 

 

  •  We’ll be letting approx. 25 people in to the store at a time. Although we are larger, we have to respect the people who have queued for hours and give them a fair crack at purchasing what they have nearly died for. We are a larger beast these days, but still small and perfectly formed. We don’t want to see any crushes/fist fights/passion for music being compromised. We will play it by ear as the day goes on, and as soon as we feel it is safe to let more punters in, we shall do. By putting the above rules into place, this will mean that everyone should be able to purchase at least something they desire at any point during the day.

Don’t be put off if you don’t fancy standing in a queue. This is why we employ the rules above, so that everyone gets a fair crack at buying what they want:) Many people were still finding bits they wanted at mid day/early afternoon last year. We want to make this as fair as possible, and look after you regular customers as well as welcoming new ones.

There may be quite a few late additions, or titles you have heard are being released but not on the RSD list.

Rest assured, if it’s an official RSD UK release, we will have a chance to stock it.

We are confident that we will receive large amounts of stock, and certainly as much as we are allowed to lay our furry paws on. But do remember, that some of these items are super limited (in some cases only 150 items for the whole country) so depending on total quantity available, we will get as much as we are sent.

To request any title – please e mail [email protected]

See HERE for release list and P&V prices.

TIPS FOR THE BIG DAY

The first customers on the big day have usually earned the right, by queuing for quite some time. If there is something you really, really want – Plan to get there really, really early.

This may sound funny, but you get to meet some really like minded souls, standing in line. There was a really special atmosphere and team spirit last year…and when that door opens, you won’t have felt excitement quite like it! Friends for life and a triumphant atmosphere all round!

Bring plenty of cash – there will be a cash only till in action on the day to help serve you as swiftly as possible. It will also be handy for purchasing a few drinks and some hot food for those queuing.

Make sure you get to enjoy the street market and our incredible outdoor stage – more information HERE (announced soon)

Keep up to date by visiting and ‘liking’ our social pages, and sign up to our mailing list to be the first to know stuff.

Pies and drinks

With all this no sleep, queuing lark – Rest assured, we want you fighting fit when you finally get to touch those promised pieces of shellac. You need to eat, to be strong to face the final hurdle…a Bowie 7’’ or the complete Vengaboys collection? We can’t have you going hungry now…

We’ll be looking after you early birds and making sure you are comfortable and offering pies and drinks for you to consume while you wait.

Our kitchen team will be taking orders from the queue and we’ll be offering free Pie&Vinyl TEA and coffee to warm you up and keep you alert. We’ll be out there early…from about 6am ish. You may even be served by ‘Piedi’ our pie mascot:)

Food and drinks will also be served throughout the day from our outside pie pop up stall, and (look out for some delicious music related pie specials)

Also, we’d like to welcome our RSD ambassadors this year St. Vincent. E mail us any messages you have for Annie, and we’ll pass them on.

Lots of Love, the P&V Referee x

Pie&Vinyl Rough Lists of Records of the Year 2016 – The Peoples Choice Record Of The Year is: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – SKELETON KEY

Drum Roll….and the The Peoples Choice Record Of The Year 2016 is: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – SKELETON KEY another drum roll…and the randomly selected winner of a £20 music voucher and a meal to accompany is Martin Boorman – please contact [email protected] to claim your winnings! Thanks for the fun guys! now on to 2017 – what great records will be in this years list eh? 

Anyway, on to our recommended lists. We don’t always go in for ‘the best record of the year’ as musical taste is such a personal choice, it makes that impossible.

So, find some of the staffs favourites, mentions of music we just couldn’t miss out, a random loyal customer who was good enough to send us their favourites and of course the official Shops choice (a more rounded group effort).

The benefit of that is, we can offer on a platter the 11 slices of pie from which you, (with the exceptional pallet) can place a vote upon your favourite slice, thus creating an official ‘peoples choice 2016′.

We always choose 11 as well, as it makes choosing 10 easier.

We will post all 11 on our Facebook page, and invite you to ‘like’ the album you think is the greatest of 2016! 

In early January, we will choose a winning name from all of you online voters/likers and the winner will receive a record and meal voucher, to treat yourself and your efforts.

So look out soon on our socials and electronic note pages, as we post The people’s choice Pie&Vinyl record of the year! (or something as glamorous sounding as that)
