Record Store Day takes place this Saturday 17th of April. It’s a day of celebration and support for our local independent record stores around the world, amongst the numerous releases and goings on one thing in particular has caught my eye, no prizes for guessing, yes it’s the new Blur record ‘Fool’s Day’. It’s the first song all 4 members of the band have recorded together since Think Tank’s ‘Battery In Your Leg’ way back in 2003. With only 1000 copies of the 7″ being pressed I can feel the air of disappointment descending already!
For all the other releases and goings on around Ireland check out Nialler9’s ‘Record Store Day Round-up’
Not accustomed to leaving you disappointed I have some lesser known Blur Bootleg material for ya’ll. A few years back a bootleg mashup of Parklife entitled Parkspliced appeared on the interweb, I think I made reference to it a while back, anyway it’s a great way/excuse to listen back to some old tunes.
You can get the full Parkspliced experience here
