This is Raves From The Grave in Frome, my local friendly record shop. It opened in 1997 and now, countless revolutions per minute later, there is a second Raves From The Grave in nearby Warminster. The two stores stock an incredible 100,000 titles between them, the Frome branch selling mainly CDs and DVDs, while vinyl fills most of the racks over in Warminster. Both the Raves From The Grave stores are taking part in this Saturday’s Record Store Day, with Bath experimental rockers The Blood Choir playing at the Warminister shop at 11am. The Blood Choir will be performing songs from their forthcoming debut album, “No Windows To The Old World”, which will be out on IRL in the summer. Click here to listen to some of their tracks on Soundcloud. They’ve got some good stuff up there.
More than 200 record shops around the UK are participating in this year’s Record Store Day. Check the store finder here to see if your local shop in one of them.
