                              RSD2016 RP1 Turntable - Pete McKee Limited Edition

                                Unique 'Club Rega' artwork, created by Pete McKee exclusively for Record store Day 2016.

                                Limited Edition - Only 500 manufactured.

                                A word from Rega, sponsors of Record Store Day 2016 - "Rega are proud to be a partner again for RSD 2016. It has been apparent from the beginning that the ethos and aims of RSD and Rega in supporting both vinyl replay and specifically the independent retail sector made the relationship a marriage made in heaven. We have again produced a dedicated RSD turntable, this year featuring an iconic design commissioned from renowned Sheffield artist and music fanatic Pete McKee which is bound to create interest and sales in all RSD stores. We will continue to encourage our independent stores to work with independent record stores to promote vinyl replay and mutual musical adventures all year round."

                                A word from Pete McKee, artist and designer of 'Club Rega' - "As an owner of a Rega turntable I was extremely honoured to be asked to create a piece of artwork to adorn a Limited Edition version of their beautiful RP1 deck. The picture is a homage to the sweaty Beat Clubs of the 60's where the 7" single was king. Sweat dripping from the ceiling, the pulse of imported R&B pounding from the speakers and kids dancing their socks off all night. The association with Rega and Record Store Day is a brilliant marriage, I've been fortunate enough to spend my formative working life employed in various record shops in Sheffield and second hand vinyl stores, those days were the best of my working life, discovering great music on a daily basis and expanding my vinyl collection immensely at the expense of my weekly wage packet."

                                The all new completely British-made RP1 features:

                                Brand new Rega RB101 tonearm.

                                      Why risk your expensive Technics middles (have you seen how much they cost to replace?), when you can bung a couple of these yellow plastic middles in your pocket to take to a DJing set. They're lightweight, durable and cheap.

                                        These yellow plastic 'spider' record middles are perfect for using with those pesky 'dinked' 45s with the big centre holes. If you were wondering where we got our Piccadilly Records logo from, it wasn't a skunk drinking a tankard of beer (you see it now, don't you!), but one of these middles.

                                        RP1 Turntable - Cool Dark Grey Colour

                                          Designed and engineered to achieve outstanding performance way beyond the expectations of a product at this price point.

                                          Excellent build quality, reliability and ease of use combine to make a product which will offer a lifetime of musical enjoyment. Omitting all the usual gimmicks allows us to concentrate the manufacturing costs on the high quality parts necessary to reproduce records accurately.

                                          Using a manual speed change rather than an automatic mechanism, eliminates speed inconsistencies and reduces wear of the drive belt. The money we save is spent across the design including a new hand assembled RB101 tonearm, precision main bearing, phenolic resin platter and a high quality low vibration motor which would normally be used on a turntable costing two or three times the amount.

                                          The minimalist design of the Rega RP1 and the use of extremely high quality components ensure that this turntable will last for many years. The RP1 is the first in a new generation of Rega turntables offering far greater performance than their predecessors.

                                          We are confident the performance of this amazing new product will impress you. Rest assured the only thing entry level about the RP1 is the price!

                                          The all new completely British-made RP1 features:

                                          Brand new Rega RB101 tonearm.

                                              Emely Neu & Editor Jade French In Collaboration With Pussy Riot

                                              Let's Start A Pussy Riot

                                                On 14th June at this year’s Meltdown festival, curated by Yoko Ono, Rough Trade Books will launch the book ‘Let’s Start A Pussy Riot’.

                                                The book has been created in collaboration with Pussy Riot and links together the events leading up to and after the group’s arrest and the themes that these courageous women fight for – feminism, LGBTQ rights, freedom of speech and the environment. Contributors include Judy Chicago, Jón Gnarr, Antony Hegarty, Bianca Casady, Sarah Lucas, Bobby Conn, Robyn, Kim Gordon, Lucky Dragons, Billy Childish, Jeffrey Lewis and many more.

                                                Pussy Riot undoubtedly ushered in a new era of feminism and political freedom with their protest acts. The dialogue so explosively ignited by Nadya, Masha and Katya continues in ‘Let’s Start A Pussy Riot’. Also heavily influenced by last years Antony Hegarty-curated Meltdown festival, the book includes an exploration of the concept of Future Feminism, asking how we can move forward and unite different voices and generations to create an inspiring dialogue.


                                                ‘Let’s Start A Pussy Riot’ was curated by Emely Neu and edited by Jade French. The book is made in association with Beth Siveyer (Girls Get Busy) and Verity Flecknell (Storm in a Teacup) and will be published by Rough Trade.

                                                  The Rise, Fall And Rebirth Of The Independent Record Shop

                                                    This is an independent film from an independent film company about independent record shops featuring music by independent bands completely financed by music fans and independent record labels.

                                                    The film charts the rapid rise of record shops in the 1960's / 70s and 80's, the influence of the chart, the underhand deals, the demise of vinyl and rise of the CD as well as new technologies.

                                                    Hear from over 20 record shop owners and music industry leaders as well as musicians including Paul Weller, Johnny Marr, Norman Cook, Billy Bragg, Richard Hawley and Nerina Pallot as they all tell us how the shops became and still are a part of their own musical education, a place to cherish and discover new bands and new music.

                                                                              "Last Shop Standing" lifts the lid on an area of the music industry in tatters – a sad but true tale of the decline of record shops and their beloved vinyl too. The author, Graham Jones has worked at the heart of the record industry since the golden 1980s. He was there during the fruitful retail years and has witnessed the tragic decline of a business blighted by corruption and corporate greed. Undertaking a final tour of the last remaining independent record shops in Britain, Graham has collected a wealth of entertaining stories that explain why the best are still standing, and how the worst of them blew it. The book includes revealing anecdotes about rock stars and industry figures including The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Queen, David Bowie, Joy Division, Oasis, The Sex Pistols and John Peel. "Last Shop Standing" is a hilarious, addictive, yet sometimes harrowing account written by a man who has been there and sold that. It is a book that will bring a wry smile to the face of anyone who has ever bought a music CD or attended a concert, and still has the promotional t-shirt of a favourite band to prove it. Since getting a break into the music industry following a colleague's failed, comical suicide attempt, Graham Jones has amassed an excellent collection of anecdotes on his travels around the record shops of Britain – all included in Last Shop Standing: The hilarity of the UK's worst record shop (not us - phew!); The most dysfunctional family in pop music; How Take That were conned out of the Christmas number 1; The hysterical tale of the band that faked a murder; The shop that sold £45,000 worth of records for a fiver (also not us - double phew!), and much more.
