Piccadilly Records Compilation 2022

    This year sees another superb selection of EOY favourites committed to vinyl for your budget priced listening pleasure. I remember TVAM playing at the launch of our end of year booklet way back in 2018, and thinking they were destined for great things, turns out that “great things” was kicking off our end of year compilation in 2022! (and writing one of the best albums we’ve heard all year too, obviously). From the distorted kosmische groove of “Piz Buin”, we segue into the similarly machinated throb of “Ploys” by Working Men’s Club before things take a more relaxed turn with the off-kilter jangle of shop favourite Cate Le Bon from February’s Pompeii.

    I have to admit I hadn’t listened to that much Kokoroko when we were selling all their 12’s last year, but Could We Be More was where it really clicked for me, and I’d consider the brilliant “We Give Thanks” as the finest cut from the whole album. I’m pretty sure there isn’t a track from Luke Unabomber’s top-spot compilation I wouldn’t be happy to see here, but to have King Errisson’s “Space Queen” and Pye Corner Audio’s “The Warmth Of The Sun” closing out the A-Side seems like the perfect shot / chaser.

    We’ve got post-rock leaning arty indie from caroline in the intoxicatingly climactic “Dark Blue” before the beautifully melodic “Stevie” from Warpaint’s Radiate Like This moves us into more airy downbeat territories. Next up we’re pulled into even more psychedelic realms by Gwenno’s Superb “An Stevel Nowydh” before the masters of modern psychedelia The Orielles present one of the more jagged but most alluring cuts on their brilliant Tableau. King Hannah’s “All Being Fine” grooves away perfectly before handing over to the unbeatable Michael Head & The Red Elastic Band to bring us home with “Gino And Rico”. What a collection!

      End Of Year Review 2022

        Back in the day (the late 90s!), confronted from October onwards by a raft of Christmas-related albums from the major labels, and barely a squeak of a release from the independents, we decided to compile our own top 50 albums of the year, and promote that over the festive season instead. 

        Now, well over two decades on, the Piccadilly Records Top 100 has become one of THE essential end of year charts to check out. Our End Of Year Review booklets have also become increasingly sought-after, and now comes packed with our Top 100 albums, Top 20 compilations, Top 20 reissues/collections, Genre charts, book chart, staff charts and reviews of our favourite albums all wrapped in lush perfect bound artwork by Piccadilly pal Mark Brown (www.markbrownstudio.co.uk). 
        The perfect read for any music lover over Crimbo.

After the success of last year’s inaugural Piccadilly vinyl, we’ve worked our magic once again to bring you another compilation LP, jam packed with musical magic from our top 20, as well as the gold medallists in the reissue and compilation categories. 

                                                                          Buckle up as we blast off into the sonic stratosphere with the ‘Piccadilly Records Compilation 2019’.

                                                                          W.H. Lung get things off to a flying start with the existential motorik and art pop perfection of ‘Second Death Of My Face’, a soaring combination of searing synthwork, sophisticated lyrics and propulsive rhythm which segues perfectly into the psychedelic throb and shoegaze shimmer of Lorelle Meets The Obsolete’s ‘Líneas En Hojas’. The tempo settles into a riverbank lilt for the haze of Vanishing Twin’s summertime serenade ‘Magician’s Success’, before coasting through the orchestral beauty of Prefab Sprout’s ‘Sleeping Rough’ and Shana Cleveland’s nuanced acid folk. Closing out the A-side perennial Piccadilly favourites Moon Duo take an arp out of Apta’s book and walk us through the cosmos with the optimistic space disco of ‘Stars Are The Light’.

                                                                          The spaced out synth tones remain for B-side opener ‘101FM’, a stomping coming of age cut from fierce MC Little Simz, who hands the baton to a lovelorn Cate Le Bon for her swooning ‘Daylight Matters’, a songwriting masterclass if ever I’ve heard one. Our own modular maestro Apta enters the fray next, working the filters for a beatific Balearic rework of Horsebeach’s ‘Trust’, before fellow knob-twiddler Andrew Wasylyk picks a path between Air (French band) and Air (Japanese Ambient imprint) with the evocative and pastoral beauty of ‘Journey To Inchcape’. Continuing the theme of cinematic and serene, Portico Quartet tug at each one of our heartstrings with the immersive electro-acoustic nocturne ‘Gradient’, a perfect precursor to Ghia’s end of night anthem ‘You Won’t Sleep On My Pillow’, a stand out track from the exceptional ‘Proper Sunburn’ compilation.

                                                                                Antique grey beanie with multi coloured Piccadilly Records logo embroidered.

                                                                                Gwen & Michael Riley Jones

                                                                                The Piccadilly Records Book

                                                                                  Celebrating 25 years as Manchester’s leading independent record shop, this book asks ‘What makes Piccadilly Records so special?’

                                                                                  Whilst music is the heart of Piccadilly Records, the soul is most definitely the people.

                                                                                  Self-published by Piccadilly Records’ Michael and Gwen Riley Jones, this photo-book is a celebration of people, place and music.

                                                                                  Alongside current and ex-staff, the book features a host of Manchester musicians and DJs including Johnny Marr, Marc Riley, Tim Burgess and Duncan Wallis (of Dutch Uncles) and regular customers, all of whom have played an integral role in the history of the shop.

                                                                                  ‘This book is a testament to the Piccadilly Records attitude to business. It’s not about just the staff who work there or the ‘pop’ stars and DJs that pass through. It’s about the music lovers that come in on a regular basis putting money through the tills and buying all those inspiring albums.” Richard Hector-Jones
