RADIOHEAD LIVE FROM A MOON SHAPED POOL at Pie&Vinyl, Friday 17th June

Pie&Vinyl

Ok Computer, we have some news for you kids – a…

Sorry.

This is a MASSIVE DEAL, so putting on my sensible hat (on top of my hitler hairdo, screaming Gucci little piggies – OK, I’m sorry, it’s out of the system now)…

Throughout Friday 17 June we will be broadcasting an exclusive audio stream in our shop. ‘WOW!’ you say. ‘YES’ we say back to thee.

The broadcast will include music curated by the band as well as a very special 2-hour live set of performances from their latest tour, featuring songs from the new album as well as favourites from the Radiohead catalogue.

The stream begins at 12pm with ‘A Long Selection from All the Office Charts Compiled by Thom’

This is followed by ‘Radiohead Live at The Roundhouse – Tracks Selected by Jonny’ which starts at 6pm.

We will also have some artwork to give away on a first come first served basis if you purchase the album (or if you come to collect your reservation if you have used our Click&Collect reservation service) and competitions running all day long, for some pretty amazing bits (READ MORE BELOW ISN’T IT)

We’ll also have a selection of Radiohead pies available in store all day, flavours the band have actually chosen themselves! Incredible scenes involving peas and mash (& Gravy).

Just to clarify, this will be an audio stream only, and we will allow anyone to be our guests throughout the day, as long as we have the room.

Have a read up below:

Competition

Customers attending the event are welcome to enter a free prize draw. This means you actually have to come to the store to enter, I think that’s the idea of this. So please support this real life experience.

Prizes include:

1st Prize – One winner will receive a selection of unique figurines used in the making of the Radiohead video ‘Burn TheWitch’ directed by Chris Hopewell

2nd Prize – Two winners will each receive a limited edition screenprint of Stanley Donwood artwork from his ‘A MoonShaped Pool’ series.

3rd Prize – Three winners will each receive a 35mm celluloid print of the Paul Thomas Anderson directed video‘Daydreaming’ in a film canister.

On release day, we will have a number of pre-printed artwork ‘inconsequential pamphlets’ designed by Stanley Donwood, for fans to take home.

Created by Radiohead’s primary visual collaborator Stanley Donwood these are special two-part instructional artworks,based on his experiences creating the A MOON SHAPED POOL album cover.

These are available on a first come first served basis, if you are collecting a reservation or purchasing from the shelves.

There’ll be other fun to be had which we’ll announce nearer the time, as we ROCK this Radiohead party, like it’s 2016

See you on Friday!

PIE&VINYL LAUNCH the SUMMER MENU 2016 *Start licking your lips*

Feast your pies on this…

At Pie&Vinyl, we source all of our ingredients as ethically, environmentally friendly and locally as possible. That is why we are extremely proud to introduce our ‘Seed to Salad’ campaign working in conjunction with Southsea Greenhouse.

We grow as much produce as we can ourselves, giving you the peace of mind that the salad you are about to eat has been planted, picked and prepared by us – locally.

The fresh crunchy leafs along with the most excellent red cabbage and homemade coleslaw will be available all summer as an alternative to our famous creamy mash and minty mushy peas.

We will offer weekly salad specials with our home made oils and dressing making a taste sensation.

We think our new LUXURY HOMEMADE SAUASAGE ROLLS go perfectly with some fresh crunchy leafs…

And we bring you PIE TAPAS – offered as weekly specials, and you get to choose three of the mini delights – perfect with salad, or creamy mash and minty peas.

Our amazing exclusive ice cream from Carolines Dairy is back, served up on it’s own, along side a sweet pie or as floats in our famous cordials…

We also introduce many new sweet and savoury summer themed pies alongside some familiar favourites!

Make Pie&Vinyl your regular hang out before you visit the beach this summer…(everything available to take away, or delivered to your home via Deliveroo)

As I scramble deeper in to the space between my ears, the hollow sounds echo. Reflected sonic trails of noise that begin to make sense only as I move closer, deeper still. This neon scar of sound can be felt as heat, warming the cold bones that make the frame of this battered body. This space encapsulated within the skull, which sits atop this cold boned frame, is the oasis of my soul. Bathing in its waters I return, drenched in melodies and sodden with lyrics. Dripping dry over my organ, the music is made.

SOME LIGHT is the sound of someone trying to beat death in life, the sound of someone still trying to beat death in life.

The 9th Pie&Vinyl Records Release.

  1. I’m Here
  2. Running With The Blind

Record Store Day 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 all rolled in to one…here is 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, in order for everyone to have a really great Record Store day! Read on for a few tips also…

RSD RULES

  • 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 the correct amount of stock. just email recordstoreday@pieandvinyl.co.uk – 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 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. And this is why we employ the rules above, so that everyone gets a fair crack of the whip) 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 recordstoreday@pieandvinyl.co.uk

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, 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 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 METALLICA. E mail us any messages you have for them, and we’ll pass it on.

Lot’s of  Love, the P&V Referee x
