Record Store Day Black Friday 2018

Record Store Day has done a great job in bringing music lovers back to record stores each year, and in recent years they’ve expanded the promotion to the biggest shopping day of the year – Black Friday. Held on Friday November 23, this day will see a number of independent record stores (including Geelong’s Gifts for the Geek) bring in a stunning collection of exclusive, limited-edition releases for your to get your mitts on – everything from Weezer, Rage Against the Machine, Garbage, to Iggy and the Stooges, and more.
Check out some of this years cream of the crop below:
Weezer: Weezer are truly the kings of capitalising on memes. The band will be releasing a limited-edition 10-inch picture disc of their cover of Toto’s Africa. Naturally, the picture disc is the shape of Africa. There will only be 3,000 copies pressed.
Talking Heads: New wave icons Talking Heads will reissue their exquisite fourth album Remain In Light, on translucent read vinyl. Limited to 5,550 copies.
Garbage: These legends will release a brand new single called “Destroying Angels”, which was recorded with John Doe and Exene. The B-Side is a cover of David Bowie’s “Starman” taken from a Howard Stern radio broadcast. Limited to 3,000 copies, the single is the first and only physical release of the song.
Rage Against The Machine: The band will be releasing a 1997 collection of live and demo takes, Live & Rare – on vinyl for the first time ever. This record was previously only available in Japan. Limited to 5,000 copies.
Anthrax: A three LP Live Anthrax live record. This release will consist of three coloured LPs — blue, pink and purple— and a tour book. 1,500 copies.
