Black Gold Records - Now Open

Here are some shots from this morning before we opened our doors for day two. Yesterday's turnout was far beyond anything we could have hoped for. We will be uploading pictures of the event shortly. Sincere thanks to everyone who came, friends, family, strangers...

We should have our website rolling shortly, but for now you can follow us on all the social networks available at

Fucked Up

The cover of Matador's 2010 Record Store Day's "Spiral Scratch" by the Toronto Hardcore ensemble, Fucked Up, depicts a Buffalo, NY record shop which has recently become another piece of music history.

Last week, Spiral Scratch had a fire which gutted the shop and closed the doors on the recently spotlighted shop. Total bummer. Best of luck to you guys.

Swell Maps
"Midget Submarines"
A Trip To Marineville (1979 Rough Trade)

Excellent video for classic track off of these original post-punkers' debut full length release, A Trip To Marineville. Featuring two of my favorite musicians from that era, Nikki Sudden (guitar) and brother "Epic Soundtracks" (drums), Swell Maps arrive strong out the gate with this important yet often publicly ignored release.
