Record Store Day 2017 at RPM Records

Here it is folks, the event you've all been waiting for. Record Store Day 2017 is nearly upon us featuring some of the most sought after limited edition releases this year, including lots of David Bowie, Elastica, Toto, Sex Pistols, The Smiths, the list goes on!

You may have already seen or heard about this but the first 20 people in our queue on the big day will receive a free Fred Perry record tote bag!

In addition to bringing you as many of these fine releases that we've been able to get our hands on and various other goodies, from 1:30pm on Saturday 22nd April, we'll have live music from the extremely talented acoustic musician Jack Moore as well as the up and coming talent of local indie rockers All Ears Avow.

Jack Moore will be busting out a selection of originals and covers with his cheeky persona and his energy performing is fantastic to watch. He'll be kicking off our afternoon of live music at around 1:30pm. All Ears Avow are combining our Record Store Day event with a stripped back acoustic set in the run up to the release of their upcoming EP 'Edge Of This', which is out 28th April but will be available to buy on Record Store Day! AEA will be starting their performance around 3:30pm. A fantastic day of limited edition releases and some awesome live music. We hope to see you there!

It really blew us away and we're looking forward to re-stocking well and getting some more treats for you in the coming weeks!

Due to the substantial success of vinyl records over the last year, the lovely folks over at the Swindon Advertiser got in contact with us a wrote a little piece on their website about us and the booming vinyl records market. Here's the link:

Happy Friday vinyl lovers!

And what a Friday it is! Metallica, Chemical Brothers, R.E.M., Disney soundtracks, The Man Who Fell To Earth, what a day for releases!

Some exciting news about what's going on here for the Old Town Christmas Lights on Sunday 27th November. Similar to our opening day, we'll have some live music throughout the day featuring the very talented Mike Barham performing some originals and covers. He'll be on at around 1:30pm. Later in the afternoon, we'll have the very awesome hip-hop/reggae Swindonians The Tribe. We're extremely excited about the event and we'll have various promotions and hopefully some freebies to give away throughout the day. As it's set to be a busy day, we'll be extending our opening hours slightly from 11am until 6pm because there will be lots for you all to see and do!

You can check out The Tribe here:



Anyway, that's it from us for now.

More re-stocks and new releases

Howdy vinyl lovers.

Hope you're week is going well. Some more bits and pieces in today that will hopefully that will make you go 'oooohhh!' Have a little looksy:

Various Artists - The Man Who Fell To Earth - OST - the soundtrack to the 1976 British science fiction movie starring David Bowie comes to vinyl for the first time which is released this Friday 18th November

Trainspotting - OST - the cult classic movie 'Trainspotting' has one of the most iconic soundtracks of all time. To mark its 20th anniversary, it's been reissued on 180gm heavyweight vinyl and the stock we have is pressed on lovely orange vinyl. Scrummy! :D

Coldplay - Parachutes - classic debut album from the boys that we thought would be a great addition to the store

Total Reggae - Roots / Trench Town Rock - cracking reggae compilations that sit at very reasonable prices

And I think that it for today. Don't forget about the other releases this Friday, including Metallica and Chemical Brothers!

Hope to see you all soon!

All the best,
Gregg and Karrie @ RPM x

The Coming Weeks Ahead!

Welcome back to RPM Records!

Hope you're all keeping well and behaving yourselves. There are lots of exciting new releases coming up over the next few weeks so we thought we'd give you a little look at what we've got, what's coming in and things that are happening in the coming weeks here at RPM Records.

Coming This Week
We've got some great new releases and reissues coming out this Friday 18th November including the hugely anticipated tenth studio album 'Hardwired... To Self-Destruct' from heavy metal legends Metallica! This release is coming on standard black vinyl, exclusive red vinyl and in a deluxe box-set as well. Judging by what they've already released from this album, the rest is set to be a cracker! Check out the video for 'Hardwired' below!
The next releases due out this Friday are classic reissues from The Chemical Brothers including the highly acclaimed albums 'Dig Your Own Hole' and 'Come With Us'. 'We Are The Night' was also due for release on Friday but due to licensing issues, this has been pushed back indefinitely. We will definitely at least have these two in stock for release this Friday so grab them while you can!

Coming Soon!

So many exciting reissues and new releases coming up, it's difficult to know where to begin. Let's start with Massive Attack. Friday 2nd December will see reissues of the Bristol trip-hoppers' huge albums 'Blue Lines', 'Protection' and 'No Protection'. 'Blue Lines' in particular is hugely sought after and we can see this selling particularly well, so if you want a copy, get in touch and make sure we've got a copy in for you!
Friday 2nd December will also see the release of The Rolling Stones first release in over a decade 'Blue & Lonesome'. Back performing the blues, this album was recorded in London in just three days and is set to be a really great album. What else do you expect from The Rolling Stones?! A little teaser clip below :)
So many more releases coming in the next few weeks including Stereophonics, Peter Gabriel, Stevie Wonder, Beck, this list goes on but we don't want to overwhelm you so we'll leave it there for now.

As for RPM Records, inevitably, Christmas is only a few weeks away and there will be lots of wonderful things going on for the Old Town Christmas Lights on Sunday 27th November. We'll be having live music in-store as well as some promotions going on to make your Christmas shopping a little less strenuous so if you can make it down, it'll be well worth a visit!

I think that's a good point to wrap things up for now (no pun intended). As always, if there's anything we've mentioned that you're particularly interested in getting your hands on, please get in touch as our initial stock orders for new releases are limited so we wouldn't want anyone to be disappointed. Having established relationships with major labels, most of our prices for new releases will be just as competitive as online and high-street retailers.

Anyway, we'll leave you in peace for now.

Thanks for reading.
