Heavenly founders Jeff Barrett and Martin Kelly will be setting up stall this weekend from 10am on Saturday 21st May on Berwick Street Market, London W1. Not something they normally do but part of a new annual event called Independent Label Market which sees the heads of the UK’s finest indie labels getting together and selling their wares directly to the public. It’s a rare opportunity to see and meet the people who sign and release the bands you love.
Jeff and Martin will have a limited number of the Saint Etienne On 45 box sets available. These copies have been specially signed by all three members of the group so get down early to avoid disappointment. More info…
Also on sale will be a special 7″ pressing of the Manic Street Preachers 1991 Heavenly single ‘Motown Junk’ resplendent in original artwork. The single was released on CD and 12″ only on it’s original release and these are set to be very sought after. More info…
And arriving actually on the day direct from the pressing plant will be another very limited 7” by Big Kids with a track titled ‘I’m Bored’. Big Kids being an early 90’s Liverpool band fronted by Edgar Jones and featuring the pre Zuton – Zutons & Howie Payne from The Stands. The track is stone cold killer slab of heavy fuggin Rn’B, a lost nugget finally getting the release it deserves as a Heavenly 45!
Martin is also promising to dig out a box of Heavenly vinyl rarities so you may just find a copy of what you’ve been looking for & they will also have sticks of HVNLP89 ‘Folkrock’ to give away – surely the future of all formats, the Heavenly stick of rock comes with a 10 track Heavenly download link on it … And they’re free, just don’t stick in your hardrive.
Roll up, roll up it’s the greatest Heavenly record stall on earth!
