      • Good lord – what a marvellous event – hard to think of a more ‘Wellington’ thing than The Mutton Birds playing the song of the same name here at Slow Boat instore here on a Friday evening for a packed store full of deliriously happy fans, smack dab in the middle of their two sold-out shows at San Fran!!We were treated to a half-hour set of stone-cold classic songs like “Anchor Me”, “White Valiant” and my personal fave, “Like This Train” by this brilliant band – a pointed reminder of the way their music has lodged in our collective pyches – for which we are immensely grateful to the band, their management and crew, and genial soundman Bob – a wonderful, unforgettable moment in the store’s storied history, and one captured for posterity with some fine video clips (including this one https://www.facebook.com/159129047505886/videos/1317027751832660/, where I tragically dropped my phone part way thru…!!!)So – just wanted to say a huge thanks to everyone who made it down, and especially the band – Don, Dave, Alan and Ross – for giving your time and talent so generously – absolutely magical, spine-tingly stuff!!!Love on ya, XX The Slow Boat Crew XX

      • And just like that, it was a new decade!! Hope everyone enjoyed a pleasant festive season, and got the LPs and CDs they wanted (or, if not, that the gifter at least got you an exchange card…!)Have been pretty well cleaned out of a lot of stuff in the Xmas rush, so we are restocking as our suppliers reopen for trade – but do let us know if there is anything in particular you are wanting and we’ll order in for you.WE DO, however, have a whole heap of swell posters to liven up those dreary wall (and even frames in which to put them, if you are a ‘poshing it up’ type, as well as a swish array of Slow Boat tees and our new cotton tote bags. We are still waiting on the new vinyl repress of the seminal “AK79” – will post something as soon as it is to hand.Wishing everyone the best light & love and positive musical vibrations for 2020.A Whole Lotta Love,The Slow Boat Crew XXX

    • RECORD STORE DAY 2019 AT SLOW BOAT!!!
      • 13 Mar 2019
      • Slow Boat Records
      • Howdy, all – well, it’s nearing that time of year again, when we spend a day celebrating ourselves, and you, theoretically, get the treats!! Record Store Day 2019 at Slow Boat on the 13th of April is shaping up as one of our best yet – and that’s no idle threat, when in the past it has involved instore performances from Dave Dobbyn, Neil Finn, Anika Moa, David Kilgour, Tiny Ruins, Julia Deans, and many more musical luminaries. We will also, all things being equal, have a whole swag of limited RSD vinyl releases, plus the usual lollies, giveaways, and good vibrations! And while I realise that many have been critical of it as an event, suggesting it has become over-commercialised, is too busy, and rains on your regular Saturday vinyl-trawling buzz, spare a thought for those who are new to the game – the celebration of physical media, the culture of independent record stores, and the community that springs up around the simple, pleasurable act of flipping through vinyl records (or CDs, or DVDs, or even, God forbid, TAPES…!) , and finding something you can love and clutch to your heart. Maybe you will meet someone you share a passion for Yes with, and fall madly in love, or start a band, or make a lifelong friend… you just never know!! We are proud of our place in the Wellington musical landscape – of the relationships we have forged with people who share our love of music, and records, and the mystique that still surrounds music, and to this end we would love it if you were to come celebrate with us on the day – or any other day, for that matter, if you’d prefer. As ever, with the limited releases, no pre-orders, no holds, and while we have ordered a whole bunch of things, we don’t know what we will actually get until the day – opening the doors an hour early than usual at 9am, and having a queue building is a total delight, and we look forward to sharing details of the day soon. We are pretty psyched, that’s all I’m gonna say at this point…! So, stay tuned – we’ll let you know when there is news, and hope to see you here on the 13th of April to celebrate with us!!! xxx THE SLOW BOAT CREW xxx
