One Question Interviews: Flannel Gurl Records

Jonathan Ashwell (Flannel Gurl Records)

SPB: What is your favorite record store? How did you discover it?

Ashwell: Like coffee shops where ever we go, we try to visit any and all independent record stores when visiting a city we have never been before. We try and treat any visit to any record store as something that is particularly special and should never be taken for granted. We have only visited Graveface Records and Curiosities in Savannah, GA once. This visit to Graveface was special to us because our friend and famous graphic artist, Ryan "The Hornet" McCardle, worked there. We typically only get to see our friend about every 6 months and while we were on our way home from Fest 11, we asked Ryan if he would be working that day and he said yes, hence why we stopped by. (If he wasn't working I doubt we would have stopped by because it was about an hour out of our way from our destination, which was home.) The record selection was vast and the curiosities were just neat. We got to hold a copy of Boys Don't Cry by The Cure on vinyl and we both cried a bit, Kimmi more so. It wasn't for sale, but it is still neat to hold artifacts. Also, right around this time Black Moth Super Rainbow just self released Cobra Juicy following a super successful Kickstarter campaign and they made those masks to promote the album. One of the masks were there that day and we happened to come by it and I kept pestering Ryan that we were going to put it on and wear it around the shop. We always tell our friends who are going to be driving through Savannah, GA to stop by this shop because it is special and one of a kind.
