On this month’s podcast I, Rick, talk to Seven of Revenge Body. It’s a rare instance (so rare it hasn’t happened before) where Josh is not on the show. Woah! We talk about what we’ve listened to and do include a list from Josh.
We talk about the origins of Revenge Body and Chopin and Depeche Mode (recorded before Fletch’s passing – RIP). Sibling noise. Found object welding sculptures. An older interview (Link here: https://botanicacimarron.love). Pop superstardom!

This month we’re joined by Ryan and James of DOOM BEACH! From a band they named when they themselves thought very little of the band and its place in their lives to a band they’ve made a big part of their lives and now take some pride in crafting the sound of we talk about that journey and the process of the band and how that evolved. We talk about music we’re all listening to. We have a good time. Tales of Lightning Bolt and tour stops. Just four folks jawin’ away about music really.
Oh, and let’s not forget all the talk of the B-52’s – the very real inspiration for this beach themed duo!
We open at 8AM tomorrow (April 23rd, 2022) for Record Store Day. A full list of titles we’ll have available is at the bottom of this post.
Parking can be found in the normal area that is painted in our lot and overflow parking is basically in the abutting lots.
We ask that people lining up early please be safe and cordial to each other. The way to keep safest in our industrial zone is not to line up before sunrise. To be cordial and friendly with neighbors please keep spots in line if anyone needs to leave to use the bathroom and with that in mind the closest public bathroom is at West Center Market (44 S Tpke. Rd.) across the street and to the left.
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.
There are a number of releases that have been delayed to a June 22nd release date. We’ll have a number of those as well – in June of course. If you don’t see what you’re looking for on our list today it may be one of those (including the Viktor Vaughn LP which a few folks have asked about).
Thanks to our friends at Forest Passage Printing and PK Would Dye For You we have a new shirt that will be available tomorrow. A white pocket T with a simple safety cone logo design and a tie-dye option! Note from PK about caring for your shirt: wash cold, separate, tumble dry low or hang dry to keep it nice and bright!
These will only be available in store for the time being! Quite the variety on these shirts – no 2 are alike!
Jeff joins us on the podcast this month to talk primarily about his project, FiFac. Electronic music production with a wide genre base beyond bass and improvisation. We talk about the FiFac internet presence (and the odd Twitter relationship / rivalry with CT Verses! It’s almost entirely positive – spoiler!). The release show on April 8th at Never Ending Books vol. 2 in New Haven is discussed (info can be found on Jeff’s Instagram page here). Bands named after other musicians and celebrities? Singing the praises of Willimantic Records and going there for shows during this pandemic. Ok ok ok, I’m just naming random topics. Listen to the podcast and hear it all. We stay on topic, mostly.
