Madness Record Store Day vinyl

Our RSD release for this year (just the one...we like to be selective), is a 1,000 copy limited edition 7” of Madness’ ‘Lovestruck’, which has never been available on vinyl, backed with ‘Le Grand Pantalon’ (a specially recorded, slowed down version of ‘Baggy Trousers’), best known for its use in a 2011 Kronenbourg TV ad, and which is also making its vinyl debut.

But what really makes this release special is the unique insert, a ‘Madness Presents’ 3D ‘Love Struck’ Toy Theatre, a replica of a classic Punch & Judy puppet theater.

The theater’s character collage was created by Peter Quinnell, and the toy theatre is being manufactured by Benjamin Pollock’s Toy Shop.

RSD 2015 is on Saturday April 15th; reserve your place in the queue at your local shop now!
