The FO team would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone involved with Another Record Fair last weekend and all the punters who came along, opened their wallets and rifled our bins.
Once the dust had settled (not on our vinyl though) our weekend got even better when the first four films for the Auckland leg of the NZIFF were announced! Luckily for us they are all music based with documentaries with films on Nick Cave and Pulp included.
Read on for more stories on new releases from Roy Montgomery, Toy Love, Grayson Gilmour, Doprah, The Icypoles + more.
NEW ADDITIONS: Roy Montgomery
Do you know the real Roy Montgomery?
If you aren't so sure ,why not have a listen to 324 E. 13th Street #7 reissued by Yellow Electric. Concealed between gatefold sleeves are 2 LP's including three new songs remastered by Timothy Stollenwerk, new artwork/unpublished photos, an insert with intros by Bill Meyer and Montgomery.
