On the eve of Record Store Day, Conor models this slinky Massive Attack number, and tells us why the band insisted on there being a 12" version of their debut album...
“Getting that test pressing back was the first time it really felt like the album was complete. It was important for not only us, but also everyone who’d been supporting us until this point. After hearing the test pressing we all felt the album sounded massive on this particular format, so we asked the good folk at Rubyworks to put a ‘Play Loud’ sticker on it, because in truth that’s the best listening experience you can have with an album.
“It’s incredibly easy to find new music in the current digital age, but we know as music lovers that having that vinyl in your hand is a different ball game. I grew up discovering some of my favourite bands through my parents’ record collection. It’s really satisfying reading the liner notes and looking at the artwork. It was amazing seeing people post our vinyl once it came out, and having that same feeling of discovery that we’ve had with so many records.”
