Edinburgh Man #231

April 21st, 2016

Podcast Number 231, or “Edinburgh Man and Edinburgh Man Junior’s Alternative Record Store Day”. For yes – Edinburgh Man Junior makes his proper podcasting debut on this week’s show.

In celebration of Record Store Day here is a special behind the scenes insight into how the two Edinburgh Men spend this annual event. Once upon a time it used to be about queuing in the cold at 7am to buy wacky coloured repressings and crazily priced box sets. But that’s all in the past. I can’t even keep up with vinyl releases throughout the rest of the year let alone the RSD ones too.

Our day involve swimming lessons, coffee and cake, play park visits, children’s birthday parties and yes – some record store related shenanigans. Oh, and hiccups. Lots of hiccups.

Apologies yet again for a late podcast. I’m addicted to “Meetup” at the moment, and last night – Thursday night – when I normally record the show I ended up at a “digital media” meetup. I thought it would mostly be about podcasting, but in the end it was more work-related than fun-filled.

So I spent an hour this morning putting together the playlist for this week’s show while sitting in Artisan Roast. This is getting to be a habit isn’t it? Doing podcast preparation while sitting in a coffee shop. Although, to be honest, there are worse ways to spend a Friday morning.

I like to try and do podcasts on Thursday nights, but yesterday was a crazy busy day so I wasn’t able to put together a playlist in time. Instead I collated the playlist this morning in Brew Lab while enjoying a (free) coffee. Actually, I suspect I drank too many free coffees this morning because within a couple a minutes of starting this show I had a blazing headache. I struggled to the end like a trouper though. Made easier by all the great music, including tracks from OhBree, King Post Kitch, Buddy Holliday Pegasissy, and more.

Ahh… It was a lovely sunny Good Friday morning as I recorded this week’s podcast. Slightly confused chat including me embarrassingly saying that the band “Leggy” were from LA rather than Cincinnati. So many apologies to them. I’ve just realised that because it’s the morning I haven’t had my coffee yet – so that’s the defence I’m going with.

Other music includes the new single “Kickstart” from Edinburgh’s Book Group, which is released today. There’s also a new track from that brilliant Adam Stafford album, and a track from the Second Hand Marching Band / Benni Hemm Hemm collaboration.
