Your Record Store Day primer

Ahead of this weekend’s annual feast of vinyl and celebration of the local wax-shack, MVD’s got a couple of great docs about the battle to keep indie record-retailers alive (and one that’s just tiresome). PLUS where to rawk and roll and thrash and bang and gaze (and drink) this week.

Bow down before Beelzebub’s favourite lounge singer, Nick Cave, PLUS a 1990 concert by Bad Seeds spinoff band / industrial pioneers Einstürzende Neubauten captured on a new DVD, AND the week in live punk and metal.
