Brownswood Pop-Up Shop on Record Store Day // Flip Video Highlights

April 17, 2011

Saturday 16th April 2011 (Record Store Day) saw Brownswood occupy the East London venue C.A.M.P. Vinyl enthusiasts browsed to their heart’s content courtesy of a marathon Brownswood move (and enforced vinyl cull). There were also rare soul, jazz, groove, funk, and African records on sale via Gilles’ favourite UK dealers…. PLUS generously donated vinyl from Thom Yorke, Erykah Badu, Four Tet, Raphael Saadiq and Jamie Cullum was auctioned.

RocketNumberNine and Obenewa performed live and Orsii (Jazzman / Fat City), Eliphino, Jesse Hackett (from Owiny Sigoma Band) and the bPm took care of DJ duties.

Huge thanks to everyone who took part. That’s not only those involved in the organisation, but also everybody came down, hung out and bought some records.

All record sale proceeds will go to the Steve Reid Foundation. Steve Reid was an amazing drummer with a long and illustrious history that stretched from working with James Brown, Miles Davis and Fela Kuti through to his own Steve Reid Trio and more recently working with Kieran Hebden (Four Tet). He died from throat cancer in the US in April 2010 without money for treatment that could have saved his life. The aims of the foundation are to fundraise on behalf of struggling musicians in need of help and support.

Record Store Day is an internationally celebrated day observed the third Saturday of April each year. Its purpose is to celebrate the art of music.
