My RSD 2012
Soooo Record Store Day 2012, like most people it seems I wasn't that bothered about it. Yeah sure I didn't have any of the Revelation releases that were being issued on vinyl and I wouldn't have minded them, but I already had 'Walk Among Us' on the 180grm that came out a few years ago and I even have 'The Shape Of Punk to Come'. I won't be wasting my time with that I thought, oh no, let those other fools queue up only to find the choice picks have long gone, no me and my wife and daughter are gonna have a nice leisurely day in Nottingham.
Mistake Number 1 - Nottingham has a record store taking part in RSD 2012!!!
So that's what we did, we went to Nottingham to stroll around have some lunch and NOT buy records. Now 'bizarrely' the first shop we went into was a record store, I went in because my wife wanted to and they weren't participating in RSD so I presumed I was safe.
Mistake Number 2 - I buy a record
"Oh look they have the new Cancer Bats album on vinyl" says the wife, now I don't mind the Cancer Bats but I had no intention of buying the record, but hey the little lady likes them and it will keep me in the good books and means we can listen to something later on so I buy it.
Mistake Number 3 - I have a look at the record
So we leave the shop and I take a peek at the record it's self, it isn't black, its on a rather nice grey marble, look here it is:
Integrity - Palm Sunday. They only got in one copy of this and and no one had nabbed it before me, SCORE!! Not seen many other people post about this one but the package is really nice and also comes with an explanation of the record and a big poster.
Right so yeah that was my RSD 2012, worked out quite well really. They still had the Sensefield and Endpoint records at the store I went to and I would have liked to pick them up too, but I figured 5 records were enough for one day.
