It's All Over Now

Thanks for everyone who came down to In The Groove on Saturday for Record Store Day. It was definitely the best RSD yet. Special thanks to all the superstar DJs who put in a shift behind the decks and provided so much musical gold.
We are open today and have plenty of RSD stock left, so before you dive onto eBay and pay over the odds pop in and see what we have.

Action & Creation while we wait...

All orders for RSD are now in, all we can do now is wait and see what turns up, with a bit of luck we might get the first deliveries by the end of the week, so look out for updates as things arrive. In the meantime we'll take a look at some of the items we have left from previous Record Store Day events. Firstly a lovely pair of 7" box-sets one from The Creation, and one from The Action. No Mod home is complete without these beauties.
