Well we certainly talked some inside baseball with Amanda this month! I (Rick) took liberties with editing on this. It’ll make for a more amusing listen if you don’t have deep inside knowledge of music retail. If you are in music retail it’s not so disguised that you maybe can’t figure out the companies discussed. Y’know, MEGACORP!? I also took the opportunity to add some spooky sounds since this is episode that is most current for Halloween. Heck, you may even figure out your own side story to go along with those sounds.
Oh yeah, so we talked about music retail business, record shows, the various stores Amanda has worked at from Slipped Disc to Needle & Groove, and Generation to her job as a representative at All Media Supply and her work putting on record shows with Vinyl Revolution. We also talk about what we’re listening to, what Amanda is listening to and what Amanda grew up listening to including her musical background.
Jack aka The//Moon joined us on the podcast this month. We talk about a variety of topics including the best green room experience he had with Cold Snap, collaborating with Wicca Phase Springs Eternal Springs Eternal, and watching Lost more times than anyone I know (and probably anyone ever).
On this month’s podcast we talk to Hughie and David of CT punk band Zipper! We talk about the music we’re listening to and dive into what happened to get Zipper going.
We talk about what bands they’re playing and releasing stuff with that they’re stoked on. We talk about the way they got into music and punk in the first place and generally dive into playing music in bands. We actually stay pretty on topic in this episode only veering a couple times to talk about a couple shows that happened in the old store’s basement (Mind Eraser and Greg Ginn – separate shows).
RSD Drop 2 is tomorrow and below you’ll find of list of what we’ve accumulated for you all to peruse and purchase.
Masks are still required here so please have one at the ready. 😷
The waiting area for RSD items will be in front of our large bay door. It will be obvious when you arrive, but just to clarify the large bay door is the second bay door to the right of our normal front entrance door.
Parking can be found in the normal area that is painted in our lot and overflow parking is basically in the abutting lots.
RSD Quantity Disclaimer: We hope we can please and fulfill the requests of a good deal of you all. As much as we’d like to have every possible thing on hand in quantities exactly matching the demand it just can’t work that way. We order a tremendous amount as do many other stores. We are allocated certain amounts of things and ultimately we get a lot because we put in the leg work. That said, we get less than we order and in some cases we miss out on items completely (trust us, it’s not purposeful by any stretch). We want everyone to be happy in the end so be excellent to each other. And if you have a request for something please let us know next week with an email or phone call and we can check on its availability.
We have also received word that a good amount of titles have been delayed and will receive later release dates. And some items have been cancelled altogether.
We are excited and honored to have a pre-order for the new Mountain Movers LP coming out on August 13th via Trouble In Mind Records. We’ll have a limited amount of purple copies with a bonus numbered print poster (12″x12″) of original Dan Greene art work (of the Mountain Movers) exclusive to Redscroll!
We’ll also have black copies of the LP and cassettes – without the extra print – available in the store on the release date, August 13th.
