As the third Saturday in April approaches, so does Record Store Day. In anticipation, the Numero Group has a stockpile of unique releases, used merchandise, Clif Bars, and small bills to facilitate two weekends of hand-to-hand product pushing. For Record Store Day (Saturday, April 18th), we return to the Comfort Station (2579 N Milwaukee) in the heart of Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood for an all-day affair. The following week, we chart a course for Brooklyn to spend a 3-day weekend at Greenpoint’s Human NYC (110 Meserole Ave) April 24th-26th.
On the menu:
Ork Records: Complete Singles 7-inch Box Set: Sixteen carefully replicated pic-sleeve singles, documenting the birth of punk, no-wave, power pop, and the next four decades of indie rock. New York City’s Ork Records was the first punk label and the original “indie.” Two-thousand (2000) of you fine folks will be able to enjoy this influential label’s entire output, 1975-1979, seven inches at a time.
Lows In The Mid Sixties Volume 54: Kosmic City Part 2: Kind-heartedly riffing on AIP’s dodgy regional garage rock series Highs In The Mid Sixties, this LP gathers the last of the precious minerals from Cavern‘s subterranean sound deposits.
Bedhead: Live 1998: Executed at our neighborly venue Empty Bottle, Bedhead’s April 16th, 1998 performance was recorded live, utilizing a 16-track ADAT unit stowed away in the basement. Limited to 1,000 copies, Bedhead: Live 1998 includes a download coupon and three additional tracks recorded in similar fashion at San Francisco’s Bottom of the Hill one month prior.
Ned Doheny “To Prove My Love” 45: Whether sequenced by mistake or by preference, Ned Doheny’s third and final album of the ’70s has spent the last three decades with a piece missing. When Prone surfaced in 1979 (in Japan only), the album’s infectious opener “To Prove My Love” appeared as a “TV Track”—with Ned’s verses omitted from the mix. In anticipation of Ned’s approaching UK tour, we’ve produced a 45 to give the listener control over which “To Prove My Love” they can remain faithful to.
CHICAGO: The Comfort Station (2579 N Milwaukee Ave)
Record Store Day – April 18th, 9am-5pm. New Stuff, Old Stuff, Used Stuff, Good Stuff.
BROOKLYN: Greenpoint c/o Human NYC (110 Meserole Ave)
April 24th-26th, Friday/Saturday/Sunday, Noon-8pm. All Numero, All Day.
See you there!
