The BLM Mud Pie – Pie&Vinyl Guitar Pedal available in store now!

Hands up if you’ve heard what a pie sounds like? If you listen carefully, really really carefully to the next pie you eat…you’ll hear that it makes a BIG DIRTY MUD PIE GARGANTUAN NOISE! Over drive galore.

That’s right friends, musical pastry for the ears. Now this guitar pedal isn’t edible, that will be the mark II – but it sure is similar.

With an amazing hand printed shell, and the filling, made by hand with love and tender care. Delicious!

We are honoured to have a guitar pedal, made in our honour!

BLM Mudpie is the product of a collaboration between three independent parties, Pie&Vinyl, BLM Audio Electronics and Birmingham based artist James Turner. The result is a limited batch of handmade, silk screen printed overdrive guitar pedals. Each pedal is numbered and sold with a numbered A5 print of the original artwork. There is currently only 12 in existence.

In Store now! and available to order on the website soon…

Pie&Vinyl’s Record Adventure #2 – look at the journey we took you on…sign up now!

Pie&Vinyl’s Record Adventure #2 – The mission brief.

So, next up Adventurers is a journey well worth taking, but hold on to your ears…as we unleash upon you the magical, mystical, psychedelic garage bomb that is ‘Wand – Golem’.

Released on the 19th of March via In The Red. This face melter will transport you to a time when swords were a persons best friend and dragons their worst enemy.  Cut from the same jib as Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees and Fuzz – and rehearsed in a GARAGE. What’s more, we have an extremely exclusive and limited version for you.

Our friends at In The Red via Forte Distribution, where so excited to hear about our next planned adventure – they offered us the LP in an exclusive RED colour. Not available in UK record stores. This makes your next adventure even more of a bespoke experience.

We are also very happy to enclose your Adventurers only P&V bracelets. Wear this for increased power, especially when we announce money off weekends or other offers only exclusive to you in the next quarter.

 

Record Adventure 1 july

 

So, here is your mission brief:

 

  • Book a flight to a remote part of France.

 

  • Carefully break the seals on your adventure package.

 

  • Remember your uniform, comb your hair, wax your tash and have plenty of incredibly strong Stilton, and a bottle of port with you.

 

 

  • Eat, Drink, soak in the sun and listen to WAND turned up to 31 and a half on your turning platter.

 

  • Then break the seals on your ‘emergency return to earth’ bonus cassette and allow P&V Records Very own Sasha to nurse you back to a safe and gentle place.

 

 

  • Finally, slip on your Adventurer wristband and sit patiently waiting for our next Adventurer exclusive event, could be a sale, could be an instore or a show.

NEW GLOBAL RELEASE DAY – from now on, everything will be released on a Friday. This starts on Friday 10th July.

NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS

Check out our new releases available to pre order using Click&Collect HERE

In a nutshell, this means you can collect your new releases at the weekend! And have time to play them…

Friday, July 10 marks the start of a paradigm shift in the global release schedule for new albums.

The previously-reported change – an eschewing of multiple release dates for each region for one worldwide release date – will affect 45 countries; it comes on behalf of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), which represents 1300 record companies around the world. To spread the word, they’ve launched New Music Fridays, a brand awareness campaign, as well as the #NewMusicFridays hashtag.

Friday was selected as the universal date in an attempt to curb piracy, and because weekends are when consumer traffic—in stores and online— are at their peak. IFPI CEO Frances Moore tells Billboard that July was chosen as the starting month for the new system to work out any kinks before the holiday season.

For albums arriving the week of July 10, prior to the starting date, this change will entail either releasing music twice in that week or having a longer gap between the store’s/label’s former release date and July 10.

Pie&Vinyl will be offering some exclusive limited records on the day of change to mark this historic event. We will be selling x 2 highly exclusive (Only 20 in the country) Third man records highly collected and USA exclusive record store day release of ELVIS PRESLEY’s very first recorded song. Yum. First come, first served on Friday July 10th:)

A recap below:)

elvis_presley_3268649e

 

”After anonymously buying Elvis’ first-ever recording at a January auction, Jack White is offering a limited-run vinyl re-release of “My Happiness” and “That’s When Your Heartaches Begin” at his Third Man Records in Nashville.

The 10-inch, 78-rpm facsimile of the 1953 recording was digitally transferred from the original acetate onto new vinyl discs with no cleanup — pops, crackles and all.

“It’s exactly what came off the grooves,” Third Man’s Ben Blackwell said.

The record is being sold in a plain paper sleeve because that’s “what Elvis would have walked out of Sun with a record in,” Blackwell said.

“Sun” is, of course, Sun Records, the legendary Memphis label operated by Sam Phillips. Presley paid $4 for the recording. Six decades later, White paid $300,000.”

The 2015 Pie & Vinyl Summer Menu Launch

Can we say it yet…..? Has summer arrived? Let’s just say it has yeah? So, let’s launch our 2015 summer menu!

We launching this Saturday 6th June, and we’re really excited to introduce some tasty new pies to the menu, as well as some familiar old favourites. We also have a new range of pasties available, and some delicious sweet pies, perfect with a healthy dollop of ice cream.

We also have a fabulous new drinks menu, incorporating our classic cordials and some amazing new tea blends from our friends at Wonky Tea in Wickham.

What we are most proud of though is our ‘Seed to Salad’ campaign. In conjunction with Southsea Greenhouse, we’ve been very busy bees, growing our own salad on the Pie & Vinyl allotment, which will be available along with red cabbage coleslaw as a summer alternative to mash and peas.

Seed to Salad is an attempt to do our part in becoming more environmentally aware and grow as much produce as we can ourselves, giving you the peace of mind that the salad on your plate has been planted, picked and prepared by us, locally.

We can’t wait for you to try our new pies, so make this weekend the weekend you come visit us!

See you soon!

Pie&Vinyl always like to seek like minded local creatives to work with, and what a pleasure that is…

And here is our first ‘back to back’ effort:) (see pic below)

This limited run of 100 T shirts will be screen printed on to high quality ‘American Apparel’ black T shirts, with unique labels on the sleeve and torso are’as of the shirt.

This time, we are delighted to introduce the immensely talented Sam Brandon…

A short bio:

Sam Brandon, born and raised in the south of Spain. 24 years old, Animation student at Portsmouth uni. Recently settled in Southsea, Portsmouth to make art as he is inspired by the seaside, the local creative community, skateboarding and music.

Sam loves anything that is odd, a little creepy or awkward, maybe even a bit gross, torn up shoes (from skateboarding), scabs/scars, very loud music and great food.

Sam doesn’t have a website to direct anyone to at the moment but I usually just direct people to my instagram: @skever , Facebook: Sam Brandon , or twitter: @SamuelBrandon also email if you want: [email protected]
