Paul Noonan, Lisa Hannigan & Neil Hannon help with the celebrations.
In perfect time for International Record Store Day on Saturday April 18, Ireland’s most talked about independent record shop Road Records (16B Fade Street, Dublin 2) is being relaunched thanks to the support and goodwill of the Irish music community.
Following a much-documented and sold-out fundraising show and the ratifying of an Investment Club the shop has been given a firm foundation from which to continue trading.
To celebrate, the following acts will be playing acoustic instores on Saturday:
12.00 PAUL NOONAN & LISA HANNIGAN
13.30 CONOR O’BRIEN (Villagers)
15.00 NEIL HANNON
There will also be an exclusive limited edition (100 only) Road Records Irish compilation CD available on the day for a mere €10! Each hand numbered album will contain an exclusive photographic print and none of the tracks have ever been available on CD before – 14 of them never having been released on any format!
The track listing is as follows:
01 Villagers - Home (early demo)
02 Large Mound - Rubbish Coffee
03 Halfset - Body Clock
04 Dinah Brand - Go Inside
05 Legion of Two - Swan Song
06 Jape - Cathedral Tramp
07 Chequerboard - City of Thieves
08 Brian Cullen's Love Bullets - Killing for Company
09 So Cow - Sheila the Destroyer
