This Saturday is Record Store Day – and Prog will be camped out at Flashback Records, Essex Road, London, for a progged-up day of vinyl shopping.
Celebrations start at 9am with Matt Stevens performing his virtuosic electric looping to the queue of shoppers until doors open at 10am.
At 1pm Knifeworld/Guapo/Gong man Kavus Torabi will be spinning discs in the shop, followed by DJ sets from Teeth Of The Sea and Prog scribe, Quietus editor and 1973 cover star John Doran.
At 6pm psychedelic experimentalist Alexander Tucker will perform in the shop.
Meanwhile Prog’s favourite rock and roll chefs Bake In Black will be serving up tasty edibles for free to the first 50 customers. There will be Prog goodie-bags, drop-ins and other surprises throughout the day – see you there! Find out more.
