News: Basick Records supports Record Store Day - 21st April

Let's reclaim the future...

Basick Records supports Record Store Day

Many of us grew up in a time when record stores were commonplace and spent many happy hours perusing the aisles of musty vinyl and scouring rack upon rack of the latest import CDs. Today an underground global movement is aiming to celebrate this unique culture that is almost on the brink of extinction - the local independent record store.

Record stores, musicians and record labels come together to celebrate worldwide on April 21st.
Find out which stores are participating with exclusive offers and in store events and make sure you go along to support them. Keep an eye out for Basick Records releases, our stock is available in many independent retailers worldwide.

Starting at Midnight (BST), for 24 hours only, we want you to celebrate with us. Use the promotional codeRECORDSTOREDAY to get a whopping 25% off your order.

Head to at midnight tonight (UK time) and all day throughout the 21st April.

Find out what the Basick team had to say about Record Store Day and the music industry in these interviews.

Barley talks to Metal Sucks "... I genuinely think vinyl and the compact disc will stand the test of time."
Lisa talks to One Metal "...the piracy problem is actually making the industry get more creative."
James talks to Thrash Hits "...the record on the shelves still feels like the real deal, everything else is just industry pish."

Bert Weedon, Brian May: Passes away at 91, Brian expresses his gratitude.

Influential guitarist Bert Weedon, best known for creating the popular tutorial manual Play In A Day, has died aged 91.

Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney and Brian May are among the stars who learned to play guitar from his books.

Born in east London, in May 1920, he had been ill for some time and died at his home in Beaconsfield, his friend John Adrian said.

He was awarded an OBE in the 2001 Queen's Birthday Honours List for his services to music.

Queen guitarist Brian May said: "He will be so sadly missed by all his friends because he is one of the most generous and giving people I have ever met in my life.

"He was always teaching people, privately and publicly. You know, he didn't have any secrets from anyone and he was so supportive to us all."

He added: "There's not a guitarist in Britain from my generation who doesn't owe him a great debt of gratitude."
