On April 21st, the day will be known as Record Store Day: a day in which independent music stores get rare vinyls in order to sell them. Loads of bands contribute towards Record Store Day by releasing these obscure records, which will only be sold on that day in the independent shops.
This year has releases ranging from The Black Keys to Noel Gallagher, Jack White to Metallica, and Arctic Monkeys to David Bowie. Some bands set a limit on the amount of vinyls that will be sold during the day, meaning they will be individually numbered, and then rare in the future. Not all stores provide all vinyls that are available on Record Store Day, but you may find that the popular ones are there for sale.
"Zooropa is the sound of U2 becoming comfortable with a new recording recording environment. After the attrition of Achtung Baby, it was lear that this technology stuff was OK, it's not the Devil, it's not the enemy, we can work with it. Edge was exploring dance and hip-hop culture, club mixes, he was experimenting and U2 were his guinea pigs."
