Record Store Day is now a major event on the calendar…not only can you celebrate by buying vinyl in key underground record sores there’s a whole plethora of cool events to go to…

Tim Burgess from the Charlatans has a great new label and is throwing a party for some of his bands on the night of Record Store Day in Manchester at Kraak gallery.

He explains, ‘Piccadilly Records asked me if I wanted to come and play some records in their shop, so we thought we’d carry things on with some of our favourite bands. I always love the chance to spin a few records alongside Liam Quinn, we got Paul Hallows to do a poster – I’d seen some of his ace artwork for gigs and we’d wanted to work with him. I’d heard good things about what goes on at Kraak so it all fell into place…’
