THE MIGHTY BOOSH RETURN FOR RECORD STORE DAY 2019

The Barratt / Fielding double-act known as The Mighty Boosh has returned to mark the 12th Record Store Day on April 13th.

This weekend’s colossal celebration of the vinyl disk sees The Mighty Boosh announced as 2019’s Record Store Day UK ambassadors.

Following in the footsteps of Pearl Jam, Sir Elton John, Run The Jewels, St Vincent and more, The Mighty Boosh is not only representing this year’s event but also releasing their own limited-edition vinyl available on the day.

Julian Barratt told StereoNET:

We are approaching singularity when computers will overtake and replace us. Therefore, it suddenly felt prescient to outwit them and somehow save our precious early recordings onto a format that the dawning artificial intelligences will not see as a threat. In the feint hope that one day, thousands of years from now, when the human race is decimated and bereft, its ephemeral digital archive wiped by the powerful shockwaves of the ‘magneto-pulse’, a solitary humanoid survivor, scavenging and in the dark tunnels beneath the humming glistening exo-skin of the earth… will discover this disc abandoned in a cave, and trace its long fingernail across the patterned surface only to drop in shock as it hears my rich and resonant voice echoing through the cave.

Noel Fielding chipped in with this truth nugget:

People that work in record shops are often obsessed with vinyl and music and bands and can steer you in the right direction and tell you about things that you would never know about. Whereas you can’t do that on the internet. It’s not possible. You want some vinyl expert to tell you about a record you’ve never heard of. That’s the beauty of it.

Have you got your eyes on anything special this Record Store Day? How about the earliest form of The Mighty Boosh's act from the original radio show on 3 pieces of coloured 180g vinyl?
