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)

Pie&Vinyl Presents…SPECTRES with support Gun Shy and Spaff Tits

Spectres Hawk Portsmouth edit Aug5th-min

POSTPONED AND RESCHEDULE FOR 16TH SEPTEMBER – ALL TICKETS PURCHASED VALID FOR RESCHEDULED DATE.

Pie & Vinyl Presents has a tasty treat for you this September. A ‘cathartic baptism in a sonic lake of unholy frequencies that will leave you acutely aware of the tenuous grip you have on mortality’ type of treat. Spectresare coming. Yum.

Hailing from the sleepy Devon town of Barnstaple the band decamped to Bristol to find an audience for their rabid noise rock / shoegaze mongrel. Taking care to maintain control on everything they put their name to they released their long awaited debut ‘Dying’ on esteemed indie Sonic Cathedral in 2015.

Meeting the challenge of its title, the album is an immersing exploration of life, death, insomnia and addiction set against a soundscape of grinding guitars, pummelling rhythms and disembodied chanted vocals which serve to soothe and scare in equal measure.

REVIEWS OF ‘DYING':

‘The stink of the corpse of rock has never sounded so good.’ – The Line Of Best Fit. 8.5 / 10.

‘Bristol noise-freaks’ debut is a deeply unsettling but utterly compelling listen.’ – NME Magazine. 9 / 10.

‘Despite the luxurious, audible excess, ‘Dying’ is a masterclass of refrain.’ – DIY. 4 / 5.

‘Disturbingly cathartic yet unnervingly compelling, Dying is a record that demands to be heard from start to finish.’ – Drowned in Sound. 8 / 10.

Be sure also to check out the ‘Hunger’ ep released in 2013 which as just good as anything on the album and the ‘Dead’ remix album which features new takes on the tracks from ‘Dying’ from HookwormsFactory Floor, Andy Bell of Ride (band) and Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai amongst others. They are currently working up album number 2 and are taking time out from recording to play this one off show.

Live they deliver an uncompromising brutal performance, akin to Swans in the way build hypnotic maelstroms from the smallest of fragments before smashing them to pieces. The sound system at the The Roundhouse, Camden was given a thorough examination when they opened for Lush (band) recently so we expect an obliteration of the intimate confines atDrift – in a good way of course. To further increase the intensity of their onslaught they’ll be projecting visuals on the night too – they will not be Disney.

Opening and making their Southsea debut will be Southampton based grunge-gazers Gun Shy. Formed by former MILK TEETH guitarist Josh Bannister following his departure earlier this year, Gun Shy have already achieved a ton of exposure on the blogs and release the ep ‘First Transmission’ on Failure by Design Records on May 6th. Expect to see more from them soon. Lots more.

SET TIMES

  • Doors – 8:00
    •Spaff Tits – 8:20
    • Gun Shy – 9:00
    • Spectres – 10:00
    • After Party – 11:00 – 03:00

Entry to the after party is also included within the ticket price so you can keep going until 3am should you wish. Drinks offers starting from £1.50 will be available all night. Just over 100 tickets available so be sure to pick one up soon as they will move QUICK.

Tickets can be purchased instore at Southsea’s Pie and Vinyl in Castle Road for the top value price of £6 a piece or online via wegottickets using the link below. Being completely unbiased we suggest you get them instore as you’ll avoid a booking fee and can enjoy the wonderful grub and vinyl goodies on offer.

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)
