Treacle needs your help to track down a very special customer

27.04.18

Last Saturday's Record Store Day was memorable for so many reasons, the most important being the fabulous customers. There was one incident which occurred soon after we opened which was particularly memorable and summed up the good natured atmosphere. Despite queueing outside for quite a while (we estimate from 7am but it could have been earlier) a gentleman (in the truest sense of the word) managed to bag the last copy of David Bowie's Live Album 'Welcome To The Blackout'. Directly behind him was a lady who was desperate to buy a copy for her husband who was present at the Bowie concert in 1978. When the gentleman in front of her learnt that she had missed out he immediately gave her his copy.

Our Record Store Day crates are going to be jam packed!

19.04.18

There are 240 UK record shops taking part in Record Store Day this year. Most of the records we ordered had only 500 or 1000 copies available for the UK so we placed our orders, crossed our fingers and hoped for the best! We are happy to announce that although we have had a small number of disappointments overall we have been happily surprised by the number of records we have received (approx 85% of what we requested). Roll on Record Store Day!

12.04.18

We had no idea that journalist Helen Coffey from The Independent had visited our shop. We were shocked (and more than a little delighted) to read that whilst researching 'Is Brighton Really The Most Hipster City In The World?' the journalist had visited Brighton's record shops and concluded that "it's Vinyl Revolution that steals the show".

The response to competition to find the best local band to open up out outdoor live music on Record Store Day had a fantastic response. We short-listed the entries down to two bands who really stood out - Dirt Royal and Lacuna Bloome - and invited the public to vote for their favourite. After 1 week and over 300 votes Dirt Royal won with 57% of the vote, with Lacuna Bloome not far behind with a very respectable 43%.
