  1. Guest Blog: Office Music Policy?

    Leave a Comment

    Is your office loud? Quiet? Something in between?

    Having already dropped a guest mix for record store day, I thought I’d poke my head out again with another guest blog about our work place music policy…which conveniently ties in with National Album day.

    Here at Burning Red we are a music on office (would it be strange if we weren’t considering we built this site?). After a few years of just randomly trying to find a happy medium about what the office music policy should be, we were left with the questions? Is there such a thing as a perfect playlist? Radio stations? Choice of albums? Relying on the various algorithms? Albums? Is it ever acceptable is a diverse work place to drop Seasons in the Abyss by Slayer? Probably not.

    On a Friday morning during a practically sunny commute, I was struck by a random idea to try with the office music policy…Theme for the day!

    Maybe it was because I had been listening to Daft Punk’s Tron soundtrack the night before, but the idea of everyone sticking to their favourite movie soundtracks for the day seemed like a great idea. When I arrived in the office, I suggested it, everyone jumped on board and the discussions started!

    What makes the best movie soundtrack?

    Is it an excellent collection of songs? 

    Is it an collection of original music created for the movie?

    Or is it just that magical balance of new and old?

    I can say this with a degree of certainty, there is no such thing as a perfect fit, but it sure was an interesting day as we took it in turns to play our favourites. Strangely, scores did not show up that much. Sorry John Williams, you just don’t cut it in our workplace.

    Something else quite special happened, everyone was eager to chose AND was ready with an explanation of why. Instead of just being a reason to chose some music for the day, it was a reason for us all to interact and learn a little more about each other.

    Movie soundtrack day was such a success I decided to think of more themes for the coming days, from the ridiculous, to the more logical. The only consistent rule we have stuck to is an album. It works quite well as you usually only end up with 40ish minutes before someone else gets to make the next choice.

     

    6 degrees of separation

    This proved to be a big hit. You know the rules to this game, just keep them connected. In a weird turn of events, it became a game of find a reason why you want to play an album you like through the 6 degrees rule.

    Fun fact, we started the day with The Bacon Brothers! I didn’t even know Kevin Bacon was in a band, let alone had a 20 year history of making and releasing music.

    We also learnt the The Bee Gees were originally chosen to play the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympics before being replaced by Muse.

    Time frame themes

    We have gone with a few the most popular was,  “1990 – 1999”. This resulted in the first time I think most of us in the office had listened to the Spice Girls debut album front to back. AND I learnt that they sampled the Digital Underground on a track! Which means the Spice Girls technically sampled Parliament! Mind blown.

    Don’t believe me? Click here and go down the sampling rabbit hole…

    Lists

    The internet loves lists! Apparently, so do we. An excellent day was, “Choose any album from the RIAA diamond sellers list.” This resulted in a few interesting surprises. For starters, on a list of the biggest selling albums of all time, who would have thought Garth Brookes would appear more than the Beatles?! This was a great little theme as it is an interesting list and there is truly something for everyone on there. It was also the first time I have listened to Nirvana’s Nevermind in maybe 20 years. Sorry, I still don’t like it.

    Making it personal

    There are a few examples that the choice of music seemed less important than what we found out about each other and the stories that tied music to our lives. The best examples are “an album that reminds you of somewhere, somewhen or someone.” or “The first album you bought or loved“.

    Stories were shared about university life, long drives with parents…everyone seemed to have a smile on their face that day as we all went with happy memories.

    Keeping it fun

    After a few weeks of playing the theme game, I chose “REMIX! REMIX!” which was a combination of any two of the previous themes.

    I write the days theme on a post it note and stick it to the office speakers and having kept the pile of post it notes, to reduce the risk of repetition, we had ammo for a new game!

    Everyone shuffled the pile of post its and pulled out two totally at random. This lead to some serious thought and we learnt the amazing fact that…drum roll…

    Aerosmith, Michael Jackson, James Taylor, Johnny Cash, U2, Britney Spears, Kid Rock and N Sync are all on the RIAA diamond sellers list AND have been in the Simpsons!

    Sorry Tom Petty, Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison, you didn’t make that cut because members of your band were missing from the show.

    What am I getting at with all this nerding?

    Music in the office can be such a difficult thing when you have a diverse work force. There is no such thing as a happy medium.

    Radio stations can get repetitive, playlists often feel like the same slightly different collection of songs…so maybe you could find the resident office music nerd and ask them to decided a theme for everyone to choose albums to play that day and you might find out some awesome things about your co-workers and learn some amazing musical facts in the process.

    I know times are changing and music is moving away from albums in favour of a more steady releases, but albums are the soundtrack to the key moments my life. I hope that doesn’t go away.

    Thanks for letting get really nerdy about music.

  2. Record Store Day In Kellys Pt4

    Leave a Comment

    Hello!

    My name is Michael, shop regular/part of the furniture, record buyer and all round nerd. Considering it’s that time of year again! It is almost RECORD STORE DAY! I thought I’d drop in and throw a guest mix up for these lovely folks at Kellys.

    For full effect, I politely ask you to play on my mix which is right below, before you start reading…go on…click play…

    I don’t know about you fair reader, for me, record store day has always been an opportunity to pick up some truly weird and wonderful things! Strange items that wouldn’t, probably shouldn’t exist, let alone someone (i.e. me and possibly you) part money with?

    You want an example? If you clicked play like I asked you would be hearing Professor Stephen Hawking “singing” Monty Python’s Galaxy Song. I mean come on! In what logical world should that be a thing that exists? I have no idea, hence why I bought it! It seems dutifully fitting that my first choice would be the summation of why I love RSD and a fitting tribute to the greatest mind of our time.

    So fair reader/listener, join me on this adventure through the strange corners of my record collection as I play you some of the weirder things I’ve purchased on RSD over the years.

    ___

    If you don’t love the Muppets, I’m pretty sure you have no soul.

    Logical follow up to a song sung by a frog and a bear right? A song about a horse! Alright, it isn’t about a horse, and yes I played the b-side, but this is my mix, don’t judge me!

    I don’t think I will ever be able to wrap my head around the existence of this project. I’m eternally grateful it does, but in what world did anyone think that one of the most credible rappers of his generation and the queen of anti-folk would collaborate, let alone smash it out of the park!

    RSD produces a lot of album re-issues. We can debate whether this is a good thing or not later, however, if you are going to make a singles collection from an album, who doesn’t want them in a singing box with a jigsaw!

    Or in a laser etched wooden box?! Truly, why would you put out a plain black record re-issue when it could be this awesome!

    Its fair to say hip hop didn’t really get into picture disc as much as rock/metal. Rhymesayers clearly missed the memo.

    Soundtracks rule, this soundtrack rules, but I HAVE ALL THE OTHER GOOD SONGS ON THE ORIGINAL ALBUMS!!! Thankfully, this exists.

    This is one of the gems of my collection. Daft Punk and Tron were a match made in heaven. It’s a shame the soundtrack was better than the movie.

    This is a ghetto as $^%$, the linear is coloured in by hand and an odd shape because they printed it themselves.

    One from last year, (ok, maybe not…I’ve got the re-issue, this is the original pressing) another soundtrack that was better than the movie (31% on Rotten Tomatoes bad).

    I really wish they would stop putting out Johnny Cash live albums and finally release the last of the American recordings! I mean don’t get me wrong, I’m sure someone wants to hear Johnny Cash live at Texas minimum security juvenile detention centre in 1983, but I would give anything to hear the last of the American tapes.

    The first of the side by side 7”s, and they are my usual must haves of RSD. Originals and a ridiculous cover. Willie Nelson and Uncle Tupelo, sold.

    Well you know something Mean Gene, this is an album sung by wrestlers from the 80s and I chose a short bald white guy singing Tutti Fruitti…trust me, it is much better than hearing Hill Billy Jim sing.

    2nd side by side, ZZ Top and Mastadon, sold. Also, that’s not a reflection due to my poor camera skills…It is black wax with a reddy brown second colour…beautiful. These are just the two of my choices for the series. I mean seriously, who doesn’t think own a split between The Bee Gees and Faith No More isn’t an awesome idea?! A boring person that’s who!

    Another great example of RSD weirdness, metal royalty Machine Head cover OC punk legends Ignite and release 4 different covers based on Tarot cards. Yeah I bought all 4, wanna fight about it?

    And last but not least…a surprise.

     

    I hope you enjoyed this journey through some of the stranger/awesome corners of my records collection. Here’s to RSD and me buying weird things like this and maybe this.

  3. Record Store Day In Kellys Pt3

    Leave a Comment

     

    Ahead of April 21st’s Record Store 2018 we’re taking a moment to champion the soulful side of music history as we brainstorm exactly what gems we’ll chose to share with you at our pop-up radio!

     

    Here is the full DJ lineup for the day

     

    From the universal appeal of the Tamla Motown hits through to the competitive arena of Northern Soul collectors, there’s something in the Soul family for each and every one of us and Soul’s place in our hearts has made it no surprise that so many huge chart names have tipped their hats to the classic sound of the 60s & 70s in the past decade.

     

    Whether your tipple of choice is stacks of shiny black 45s or bookshelves of LPs, committed record labels have recently opened their hearts and collections to allow us to al lparty down to reissued rare collectibles that most us couldn’t ever dream of owning which makes 2018 a heck of a time to be alive & digging!

     

    New & old, hard & soft, here’s a heap of some of our all-time favourite Soul recordings
    from our own collections. What are some of yours?

     

    Check out this new mixtape by our newest member of staff and turntable extraordinaire, it’s a fantastic selection of “ROCK” just for Record Store Day 2018

  4. Record Store Day In Kellys Pt2

    Where would Kellys be without our Rock & Pop section?!

     

    Well, for one, the shop would be much, much smaller but more importantly there would be some serious grit, attitude and some well-needed dirt missing if we ever lost our guitarlead Rock, Metal or Punk sections.

     

    The electric guitar has been a go-to tool for rebels, town criers and rule breakers for well over half a century now so we’re tuning up our air guitars intently ahead of our on-air, instore Record Store Day performances on the 21st of April to keep the spirit alive.

     

    Bouncing blues, cosmic prog exploration, hissing punks and heavyweight riffs all bring out the rock god in us at the shop so we’ve pooled our favourite tracks from over the years and we’d love to hear what rock records are currently ranking high on your wishlists!

  5. Record Store Day In Kellys

    1 Comment

    Spring is here and Record Store Day 2018!

     

    Kicking off on the 21st of April, we’re going to be greeting seasoned collectors and fresh new vinyl enthusiasts with a whole day celebrating the timeless format, armed with everything from special offers to live performances. All set up with us here at our balcony shop.

     

    You just can’t properly celebrate vinyl without playing some tunes which is why we’ll be teaming up with Andrew from the excellent Sounds Like Radio who’ll be presenting a day of live broadcasts from inside our store.

     

    Our turntables are going to be put to serious use at the hands of none other than local powerhouses Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals) & Don Leisure (Darkhouse Family) along with local DJs NOTSOEVER, Dj Enzine and The Kellys Staff. There’s going to be plenty of time pick through the racks with a backdrop of choice musical gems as well as enjoy some discussion on the good, the bad & the ugly sides of record collecting!

    With free rein behind the decks, we’ll be treated to recordings that have been pivotal driving forces behind influential names in the music scenes of both Cardiff and the further afield while we browse through the thousands of singles & LPs we’re so lucky to have; what’s not to love?!

    PLUS

    If that’s not enough fun for one day in the evening we’ll be teaming up with local watering hole and eatery The Blue Honey Night Café to bring you a whole night of vinyl greatness from some of Cardiff’s best music selectors.

    In the meantime, we’re hoping you’ll join us in counting down the few remaining weeks leading up to Record Store Day as we dip our toes into the most cherished zones of our collections and share with you some thoughts & sounds from the worlds of Soul, Rock, Disco, Dance and much more!

  6. Method in the Madness – Organising Your Collection

    Leave a Comment

     

    There are millions of different records out there. Which ones are great and which ones are pants is entirely up to you and your tastes but one thing is for sure – every single one you add to your collection is going to multiply the amount of ways you can choose to organise those dusty cardboard sleeves.

     

    Here at the shop we have gone down the route of organising alphabetically within specific genres so that you can rock up to the shop and check if that dream item is in stock within minutes.

    LPs, 7” singles and 12” singles are also kept in their own sections so you can be even more specific in your search. The entire catalogue is even listed on our website so that you can know if, where and how to get your hands on what you’re after or there’s always the alternative of just turning up and seeing how the mood takes you.

     

    There are other options though and here’s a select few that have been adopted by some of the biggest exponents of vinyl collecting and performing:
    Once awarded with the title of ‘America’s Best DJ’, the multi-faceted producer and performer Z-Trip has an enormous vinyl collection exceeding 50,000 records.

     

    As a notoriously competent DJ, Z-Trip’s priorities lie with priming them for live performance and said:
    “I found it easier for all the stuff that I was using in shows to have it all BPM’d. Everything sort of starts at like 70 Beats Per Minute and y’know there’s a couple of things like slow jams or whatever that are like in the 60s but everything’s 70 and goes up faster to 70, 71, 72 and on and it goes all the way like that all the way around ‘till you get to like the 135… Once you start to get to 138 and it’s sort of double time it sort of goes back to 70”[1]

     

    For a man as esoteric as he is elusive, Detroit torch-holder, musician, DJ and producer Moodymann is brutally conventional in how he organises his broad vinyl collection. If you become fortunate enough to join Moodymann’s fold he says:
    “You come to my house, you look at my vinyl collection and there’s one category. You better know the name of the artist because that’s the category he’s in – alphabetical.” [2]

     

    Just like the records you choose to add to your collection, your means of organising the music you love so much is entirely up to you. Unless you’re a record shop or a library it doesn’t have to make sense to anyone except yourself.

     

    Fewer Hip-Hop producers have sampled from as broad a vinyl collection as the late, great J Dilla. His close friend and fellow producer House Shoes found J Dilla’s meticulous organisation to extend to both his record collection and his fridge and said (of J Dilla’s vinyl collection:
    “I never really understood his organisation process at all but he (knew where he) could go right to any part and pull a record out at any given time”[3]

     

    Whatever you you choose to do with your collection (big or small), lay it out in a way that works for you so that you waste no time in getting to that earworm, that artwork or those liner notes you just can’t do without.

    Kellys CD shop is having some mad changes! We’ve recently zeroed all of our CD stock, we’re basically starting again. For the last couple of weeks we’ve been reorganising and repricing all our CDs and found that there’s still life in the old dog yet! What has been fun about going through all the CDs is finding some real wafty and interesting music as well as some classics that had gone amiss under our old regieme. There have been some casualties though, as we have unearthed an unhealthy amount of Girls Aloud CDs, but hey, you win some and you lose some. We’re only about half way through the rock and pop, so we’ve still got a long way to go, so if you fancy come in, say hi and pick up a Girls Aloud album (please im drowing in them).

They plan on doing a few small cassette releases to start and then maybe progressing onto vinyl, maybe doing a few nights too. They set it up because it seemed like a fun thing to do, and so far, it has been pretty fun! In the not too distant future they’ll be doing a collaboration with Ankle Swingers (which is run by their friends in Epsom). Everything they release will be available for a free download on their bandcamp.

     

     

    So after we spent a few days sorting our 7’s out and giving them fresh colour-coded headders we thought we would recomend some of our favorite singles.

    To run alongside our 6 week summer blog we asked our resident crate-digger DJ Enzine to put together a random selection of 7” vinyl just for the fun of it, so if you’re just chilling in the garden having a BBQ, on the bus or in the car on your way to work or running around the local park on a warm summers evening we have the soundtrack for you…..Enjoy.
