Some news I’ve been sleeping on like a moron… Jim Marlowe (Sapat, Tropical Trash) is opening up a new record store this Friday. It’ll be named Astro Black Records. Apparently, Jim’s not opposed to doing some shows at the new shop once he gets settled in. They’ll be selling new as well as used records, so if you have some old stuff to sell off, keep them in mind. And the stuff on the shelves – tax is already marked in the price, so none of that awkward adding up in your head on the way to the register.
Phil Olympia, who runs the Never Nervous blog, recently ran an interview with Jim. You should definitely check it out ASAP.
There are quite a few triumphs that residents of Louisville have to be excited about this Summer. For instance, we have a new record store on the brick-and-mortar horizon called Astro Black Records, and we also are looking forward to the much anticipated debut seven inch record from post-rockers Tropical Trash. My friend Jim Marlowe is behind both of these happenings and was nice enough to sit down and answer a few questions about his new shop, the upcoming Tropical Trash record, and so on and so forth…
