who hasn’t time for music. What a shame to leave a child, or worse, a generation, orphaned from one of life’s great beauties. And to the record stores, artists, labels, DJ’s, and journalists; we’re all in this together. Show respect for the tangible music that you’ve dedicated your careers and lives to, and help it from becoming nothing more than disposable digital data.” Jon Toogood (Shihad) “Whenever we came to Auckland, this was the first place we’d stop. This store has everything I like about music, not just records, but books & clothes…this is the way to do it.” Joshua Homme from Queens Of The Stone Age on Real Groovy

“These are the last hold outs for what to do that’s cool in your city, you know. If you wanna know what’s going on in town and you’re not from the town just go to the record store. In 2003 I came here for the first time to Auckland and with Mark Lanegan, Nick Oliveri, Troy and Joey and myself. This was the first place we gravitated too. I think we each spent our 6

per diems, our entire per diems here and we’d been here for about three hours but we spent our whole weeks per diems here..” Ben Harper “Independent record stores are much more than the name suggests. They are an international community and platform where music has an outlet and an opportunity to grow over the long term, in a way that sincerely connects with community and culture. They are also a magnificent mob of highly opinionated musical bandits which I am proud to call my pals! “ Serj Tankian (System Of A Down) "Save the whales, save the dolphins, save the planet, save the record store? Yes, that's exactly what Record Store Day is all about. Due to people's lack of discernible tastes in listening quality, a good amount of what we sell as music is compressed mp3s (dumb downed, easy to transport). We are selling fast food music for people's fat and indiscernible ears. But there are still a few good restaurants around. And those of us who appreciate good ear food should be supporting them. I love Real Groovy" Ziggy Marley "Record stores keep the human social contact alive it brings people together. Without the independent record stores the community breaks down with everyone sitting in front of their computers" The Record Store by Damien Rice ”dusty violin maker shop, small corner record store, water holes for dreamers, don't stop, breathe more” Amanda Palmer (The Dresden Dolls) “It's not just the ability to touch, see and smell an album and the artwork...it's the fact that you are in a Real Place with Real People...and not just any people: other music-obsessed freaks like you. I make a point to hit the indie retail record stores to see what they're spinning and selling, because I just LOVE being there...my own personal and sometimes anonymous church. You can't get that feeling sitting behind your computer, ever." Fat Mike (NOFX) "If it wasn't for independent record stores, I would be a San Fernando valley real estate agent." Shelby Lynne "You can't roll a joint on an iPod - buy vinyl!" Tom Waits “Folks who work here are professors. Don't replace all the knowers with guessors keep'em open they're the ears of the town”
