One Question Interviews: Morning Glory

Ezra Arrow Kire (Morning Glory)

SPB: What do you think of Record Store Day?

Kire: Record Store Day? It should be an official national holiday! Why? Because every child of the '80s and '90s remembers going down to their local record shop and listening to those big, shiny black, magic pieces of vinyl with those gigantic headphones on, going over and over that large format art for hours on end, reading every little detail in the liner notes, all the way down to the smallest credits.

Sometimes when browsing around my record shop I would run into other music enthusiasts and get to discussing and arguing over the value and content of "good" bands. Occasionally it could become quite heated and I'd leave slightly irritated (mainly because I knew they were right), but still elated to have discovered something brand spanking new! Not only is it the truly tangible experience of musical exploration that you just can't find online, it's often educational! A musical library stock full of hidden gems and rare treasures.  

And now-a-days I have another reason to go into a record shop--I get to see my own records in the "M" section (or maybe once in a while they'll turn up in the used "99 cent bargain" section, hehe). Hell, either way it's a great way to get my own music for cheap! Or sometimes I'll just autograph it and slip it back into place. And if they don't carry my record, well I just go pester the shop owner directly until he gets hip and agrees to stock it! And since it's good luck to go out and buy a copy of your album on its release day… there's only place you can do that--your local record store! I vote national holiday for this one.
