What a week!

Firstly... Record Store Day this Saturday 23 April 2022

We have been working hard behind the scenes to bring you the 15th Record Store Day - the spirit of RSD hasn't changed for us. It's a celebration of music by artists we love to love, of independent record shops (which are, for us, more than just a retail experience) and of being part of a music loving community.


RSD is clearly not perfect and not to everyone's taste. We realise that these are expensive items and so as music fans ourselves as with all our stock we are only stocking the releases that we really believe in and feel are worth it.

Doors will open at Off The Beaten Tracks at 8am, with over 250+ releases to choose from. And we live music from Experimental Sonic Machines at 10am and Jake Newby at 4.30pm. Bring it on!

Hand printed wall art by Wild Freya Designs will be available to buy in store on RSD

NB. There are some RSD releases that have been delayed, we have been advised that these titles will make an appearance on 18th June.

We look forward to seeing you


Not only is it the 15th Record Store Day on Saturday 23rd April but Friday 22nd sees the release of Skinty Fia, the new album from Fontaines D.C.

'2020’s A Hero’s Death saw Fontaines D.C. land a number 2 album in the UK, receive nominations at the Grammy's, Brit's and Ivor Novello Awards, and sell out London’s iconic Alexandra Palace. Now the band return with their third record in as many years: Skinty Fia. Used colloquially as an expletive, the title roughly translates from the Irish language into English as “the damnation of the deer”; the spelling crassly anglicized, and its meaning diluted through generations. Part bittersweet romance, part darkly political triumph - the songs ultimately form a long-distance love letter, one that laments an increasingly privatized culture in danger of going the way of the extinct Irish giant deer.'

Vinyl versions and CD in stock now

Also just arrived...

Originally released by Victory Music in 1991, Tin Machine II is the second and final studio album by Tin Machine fronted by David Bowie. Music On Vinyl gives Tin Machine II its first vinyl re-release since the 1991 original, and it’s pressed on coloured vinyl for the very first time. 5000 copies.

The Wedding Present's new single Monochrome (7” Version)/ You’re Just a Habit That I’m Trying To Break is the fourth release in the 24 Songs Series.

'The notion of a monthly 7” single is not new to The Wedding Present, but 24 Songs shows us that even classic concepts can be reinvented. The series also continues the band’s association with photographer Jessica McMillan, who has created stunning images and films as a visual accompaniment to the recordings.'

Fu30, Pt. 2 is the second installment in Californian stoner-rock band Fu Manchu’s 30th Anniversary vinyl 10” series, 'Fu30, Pt.2, includes 2 new original Fu Manchu songs, as well as a cover of Surf Punks’ “My Wave.”' Neon pink 10" vinyl limited to 2500 copies.
