Britains tiniest vinyl record shop opens in Peterborough
Oct 24, 2014 6:30am | Fact Magazine
A shop claiming to be the UK’s smallest vinyl record shop has opened its, er, door.
Owner Matthew Hawton cut the ribbon of Marrs Plectrum Records this week in the garden of his house in Peterborough. “It was simply impossible to open a shop in the town centre,” he says of his miniature shopfront. “This way we can keep the costs down which is great for our customers. I cant complain about the commute to work either.”
The recent growth in vinyl sales encouraged Hawton to launch a physical store. “For many of us, vinyl has never been away, but its popularity is certainly on the rise,” he says. “Its an exciting time for record collectors.
Despite its limited capacity, the shop stocks several thousand new and old vinyl records across all genres. Judging from the photographs, they’ve got LPs by Nas, St Vincent, De La Soul, Ramones, Morrissey, and Sleaford Mods twice, which is very commendable.
Its not just about the records that your mum and dad played,” adds Hawton. “New and relevant bands are all releasing their music on vinyl again. Its at the point where the pressing plants cant keep up with demand. Thats why were mixing new releases with the classics and collectables.
The shop is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm and Saturday from 11am to 2pm find it at 387 Fulbridge Road, Peterborough, PE4 6SF. [via...

That Token Jazz Column #1: GoGo Penguin Interview
Oct 24, 2014 5:51am | Drowned In Sound
Ahead of this year's Mercury prize, DiS in partnership with Naim Audio's new wireless music system, mu-so, will help you GoDeeper into 2014's nominated albums. Today, we would like to turn your attention to jazz trio GoGo Penguin, with the launch of our new jazz column. Visit our Mercury mini-site for for our review of their album, plus more coverage of all of this year's nominees.
Gogo Penguin. Polar Bear. Jazz bands. Mercury Prize Nominees. The formula to their success? Names that include animals from our planet's extremities. Obviously. In all seriousness, the appearance of two jazz acts amongst the nominees may finally put pay to the Token Jazz Band tag that has hung over past jazz nominees like a bad smell. The Mercury prize purports to help give artists a boost in both sales and popularity, however previous TJBs (see Roller Trio, Gwilym Simcock, Led Bib - all by the way still very much active and still very good) have experienced a brief moment in the sun before drifting out of sight of the mainstream eye, forever 'Jazz Famous' and forever pre-fixed by 'Mercury Nominated'.
Polar Bear are of course no strangers to the award, having been nominated in 2005, and they are one of the few TJBs who have maintained a semblance of mainstream presence since then. The absence of a "who the fuck are Polar Bear?" reaction this time round said a lot about their enduring popularity and, it should be noted, fairly ...

Einstürzende Neubauten to release World War I-inspired LAMENT on Rough Trade
Oct 24, 2014 5:25am | Fact Magazine
Prisoners’ testimonies used as source material in industrial icons’ new album.
Einstürzende Neubauten have announced a Rough Trade release for their WWI-themed composition that will have its premiere in Belgium next month.
Titled LAMENT, the piece is inspired by testimonies of prisoners of war dating between 1914 and 1916, which the band have been exploring in the sound archives at Humboldt University in Berlin and the Deutsches Rundfunkarchiv (German Broadcasting Archives).
The LP, which is set for release on vinyl, CD and digital on November 7, attempts to evoke “the filth and terror of the industrialized 20th-century world at war with itself,” says Rough Trade, adding that archaic nationalist songs, dadaist writing and algorithmic composition techniques were also an influence.
The piece will be performed in Diksmuide on November 8 as part of an event called Against The Neglection: Gone West, the Fall of Diksmuide 1914-2014, and then taken on tour across Europe see the dates below. [via RA]

He’s just showing off now.
By now everyone should know that Murlo is one of the most exciting new producers around, but they might not have realised that the boy’s got mad skills as an illustrator and animator too. To demonstrate, the Midlands-via-London grime producer has unveiled his own video for Boxed anthem ‘Into Mist’, the lead track on a new EP due on Rinse next month.
Immerse yourself in his surreal world of floating globules and marble statues above and hear another track from the EP, ‘Vertigo’. Don’t miss his FACT mix from the beginning of the year, either.

Oct 24, 2014 4:24am | Fact Magazine
Sweet treats from the London scene stalwart.
Mr. Beatnick, producer, DJ, NTS host and writer of this parish, will release his first original material of the year next month on Tief, the label arm of the Corsica Studios club night.
The Marshmallows EP follows Nick Wilson’s essential Synthetes trilogy, which appeared on Don’t Be Afraid in three annual doses before being compiled onto a full-length last year. The new four-track EP is due for release at the end of November and features three original tracks and a remix from Melbourne producer Francis Inferno Orchestra.
Wilson also moonlights as FACT’s resident Sun Ra expert, and earlier this year he marked the space jazz pioneer’s centenary with a special two-hour mix and an interview with a Sun Ra reissue specialist. Take a tip from his FACT mix from 2013 too. [via JunoPlus]
