While the rest of Bexhill was tucked up last Friday night there were determined music fans in Devonshire Road waiting for Record Store Day to hit town.
Del Querns and Richard Wortley of Music’s Not Dead were stunned by the interest shown by customers who stayed overnight to be first in the queue having arrived at 11pm. By opening time on Saturday morning there were more than 100 waiting outside.
Del said: We were really humbled by people’s dedication and commitment to music yet again on Saturday, so many smiling faces. We wish every Saturday could be Record Store Day.”
Live acts in the shop during the afternoon were Co-Pilgrim, Gill Sandell & Chris T-T, Elle Osborne, and Emily Barker.
This years best sellers were David Bowie - Changes picture disc, Small Faces - Ogdens Nut Gone Flake picture disc, Father John Misty - I Love You Honey Bear (heart shaped red vinyl), Sex Pistols - Never Mind The...picture disc.
Record Store Day saw more than 500 releases this year so Del felt “there really was something for everyone.”
