Record Store Day in South London

Record Store Day is on tomorrow, Saturday 20 April, a celebration of independent record shops.

Holding up the South London end is Camberwell's Rat Records (348 Camberwell New Road), with live DJs from 10 am to 7 pm. Line up includes DJ Terror Eyes, still remember a fantastic set by him at Dead by Dawn in Brixton.

Meanwhile at Casbah Records in Greenwich (320 Creek Road, SE10), there's acoustic sets from Peter Parker's Rock n Roll Club at 14:30 and Nathan Persad at 16:00 - plus a Clockwork Orange-themed competition. In the 1971 film, Alex goes to the Chelsea Drugs Store where people are browsing through the vinyl. The records on display are the kind of 1960s/70s classics that Casbah specialise in, and if you can spot five albums in the shop that can also be seen in A Clockwork Orange there's a prize. To help you, the scene is analyzed in detals at John Coulthart's Feuilleton blog.

I think I saw that Casbah in Greenwich (on Creek Rd). Nathan Persad's playing at 4, I think, but I'm not sure what else they're doing.

Erika Eigen – who wrote the song 'Lighthouse Keeper' which featured in A Clockwork Orange – used to regularly play the song around the corner from Casbah Records around 2007-09 when the One World Club was at the Mitre Tavern every Thursday night.

Erika was in the 60s group, Sunforest.
