Monthly Music Quiz

Our next monthly music quiz will take place on Thursday 24 August, hosted by our good friends at The Tipsy Pig in Latimer Street, Romsey.

The quiz starts at 7:30pm and max team size is 6 people. You’ll need a team as the 80 questions will cover all genres, and some questions (but not all) will be difficult.

Entry is £1 per person, and there will be prizes of beer tokens and money-off vouchers, with all proceeds going to charity. Look forward to seeing you there!

 

 

Tuesday 12 September

6pm – Seán McGowan

Sean McGowan

We are really excited that Southampton-born singer Seán McGowan will be appearing in-store on Tuesday 12th September at 6pm as he is releasing a brand-new EP, Graft & Grief, on silver vinyl and CD.

The 7-track EP features the singles ‘No Show’, ‘Apple Core’ and ‘Costa Del Solution’. Graft & Grief showcases Seán’s lyrical dexterity, knack for penning a catchy melody and laser-sharp social commentary. ‘No Show’ puts zero-hour-contract, minimum-wage drudgery into riotous perspective – rebellion in half-arsed job performance, revenge in furiously-paced folk-punk. ‘Apple Core’ draws gentle echoed gallops while Seán spits lyrics at a pace, a rowdy chorus nailing his unexpected eloquence. ‘Dog Tag’ flows from chin-up confidence to raw honesty, and ‘Clear Conscience’ rumbles with drum rolls under soft guitars. Finally, new song ‘Costa Del Solution’ is a bright, sunny jangle set upon high-street despondency, which twists the cliché of a beach holiday escape.

Graft & Grief is an impressive showcase for Seán’s rollicking full-band set of socially spot-on songs; an insight into realities of being young and musically motivated in modern England.

You can pre-order the Graft & Grief EP here.

 

 

Friday 25 August

6pm – Flyte

We are delighted and excited to announce that we have Flyte playing in-store at 6pm on 25 August, the release date of their debut album with Island Records. You’ll hear influences that run from Nick Drake to Mac DeMarco by way of the Blade Runner soundtrack but always, always with their trademark vocal harmonies front and centre. Check out their single ‘Cathy Come Home’ to give you a taste of their sound.

‘How much will this cost?’ I hear you ask – well, it’s free! so come along on and be in on the ground floor of something special.

Last Shop Standing

To celebrate the opening of Hampshire’s newest record shop, Graham Jones brought his live ‘Last Shop Standing’ event to Hundred Records. His comic tales gathered from the record shops of the UK produced plenty of laughs, as he revealed the dodgy shenanigans the record companies got up to trying to hype their records up the chart.
