With Record Store Day 2018 being on April 21, Prehistoric Sounds (the formally known humble record store Sweet Little Hi-Fi) owner Shane Godfrey shares some of the goings on at the store.
Firstly, they have just signed a new lease for their Warrnambool location (Rear 130 Liebig Street) and have started some minor renovations and improvements to the store, including a lick of paint, new wall displays, and treatment to reduce degradation of the sandstone walls. Also, their permanent stall at The Mill Markets in Newcomb (Geelong) is going from strength to strength with stock renewed weekly, all alongside the launch of a new website.
Prehistoric Sounds has been involved with Record Store Day since 2011, and it has grown into a worldwide phenomenon. It’s great to see some Australian labels getting on board and releasing Australian music. Look out for releases by Tumbleweed, Courtney Barnett, Jebediah and Polish Club to name a few, as well as overseas artists including David Bowie, Rage Against The Machine, Linkin Park, Mac Demarco, The Cure, Frank Zappa, Led Zeppelin, Wolf Alice, The Stooges, Celtic Frost and many more.
They’ll be having their Record Store Day party at the Warrnambool store, kicking off at 11am. There will be a couple of special musical guests with “Fast” Eddy Boyle & Tim Conlan doing their Bluesy duo thing with a harmonica and double bass, plus, direct from Bluesfest, they are pleased to present Little Georgia who are taking time from their tour to drop in and play a couple of tunes. They will also be playing later that night at The Loft.
The Geelong outlet will also be in on the action at the Mill Market, stocking the special Record Store Day releases too – open from 10am!
Be sure to drop in at Rear 130 Liebig Street (enter from Parkers Car Park) Warrnambool or The Mill Markets, Stall 502, 114 Bellarine Highway, Newcomb.
