Word of Wombleton Records has evidently traveled down the wire and reached the east coast. We are excited and delighted to have been the subject of a short piece by Nancy MacDonnell for the New York Times blog T Magazine:
Thanks to all of our friends and customers (here and abroad) who have supported us so far and caused us to get this kind of attention… you all know who you are, you glamorous freaks! Also, look for obscure Manchester post-punk outfit prominently featured in the photo (and no, it’s not The Smiths on my T-shirt, you cheeky gits!)
Now, speaking of “making it” in the Big Apple, here’s some related inspirational material from an unsung, wannabe-Wombles puppet troupe from America:
THUR APRIL 28 WOMBLETON DJs DAVID & LISA 7-10
In Lisa’s own words:
“This Thursday night! Swing by Wombleton Records in Highland Park and sift through the most impressive collection of vinyl for sale this side of the LA River while David and I woo you with the dulcet sounds of the songs we listen to in our bedroom while our cats watch us play Strip Star Wars Trivial Pursuit.”
THEN… at THE BLACK BOAR bar (1630 Colorado, Eagle Rock) It’s DJ IAN MARSHALL spinning SOLO (hopefully not ‘SO LO’ you can’t hear him), filling in for JIMI HEY at his weekly extravaganza “WOW!” Come and drop to his latest bops & catch up on the latest disgusting gossip.
