Vinyl shopping with The Lemon Twigs – Bands Buy Records Ep. 09

This was never not going to be a laugh

We had an inkling that giving The Lemon Twigs a humble amount of cash to spend on records was going to be an entertaining afternoon, and it was.

On a recent trip to London we stuffed a couple of notes in Brian and Michael D’Addario’s hands and took them record shopping at Camden’s RA-RA ROK Records.

Same rules as with all Bands Buy Records: The Long Island brothers got £25 – or 25 “squid” as they called it – to splash on a minimum of three records.

Check out what they went home with:

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support our running costs (the printing and distribution fees, the podcast and production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.

If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
