Rush for rarities from Radiohead, Bat For Lashes and Grinderman
Thousands of music fans across the UK have taken part in Record Store Day 2011 today (April 16).
At London‘s Rough Trade East branch, eager shoppers started queuing from the early hours of the morning, with a view to getting their hands on highly limited releases by the likes of Nirvana and Radiohead.
The store’s Spencer Hickman, also the UK coordinator of Record Store Day, told NME that those releases had been amongst the very first to go, the shop only receiving limited number of copies of the repressing of Nirvana‘s ‘Hormoaning’ EP.
Within an hour of the shop opening at 9am (GMT), multiple copies of Radiohead‘s ‘The Butcher’/’Supercollider’ were being listed on eBay, with some attracting bids of over £70.
