11.06.2021: To mark the first instalment of Record Store Day this Saturday (June 12th), staff at UK Music have shared the last album they bought.
Andy Edwards, Director Of Research
“Most recently I bought Paul’s Boutique from Rough Trade, as I realised, having watched the recent Apple TV documentary, that it was the only Beastie Boys record I didn’t own. It is a record that gives you the sense of a band growing up, wising up and discovering a bigger world.“
Jennifer Geddes, Communications Manager
“The last album I bought was Childish Gambino’s “Awaken, My Love!” on vinyl record, which is one of my favourite albums of recent years.”
Matt Bold, Policy & Research Officer
“The last album I bought was Patent Pending’s Other People’s Greatest Hits, which is a collection of upbeat, zesty, foot tapping pop punk twists on some the biggest hits of the last 10 years.”
Dr Oliver Morris, Director of Education
“The most recent one I bought is The Art of Losing by The Anchoress. I got two copies – one for me and one for my Mum – but don’t tell her as it’s a pressie!“
Rachel Bolland, Director of Operations & Head of Diversity
“Not the last record I bought, but the last one I received after pre-ordering it months ago was Taylor Swift’s second surprise album of 2020, evermore. “
Tom Kiehl, Deputy CEO and Director of Public Affairs
“Throughout the pandemic Banquet Records in Kingston has been operating solely online and provided an excellent mail order or collection service throughout all the lockdowns. My last purchase from them was the recent vinyl reissue of My Bloody Valentine’s 16 years in the making third album m b v. “
Vincent Moss, Director Of Communications
“My latest buy is Wolf Alice’s Blue Weekend. It’s every bit as good as their first two albums. “
