You would have had to be up very early to get today’s bumper 7″ gift, but Banquet’s advent calendar for 2012 is now live!
Each day, there will be awesome deals over at the site, so make sure you keep an eye on it from now until Christmas!
Here’s a quote from the shop about this year’s madness:
And so we start! Welcome to the Banquet Advent Calendar 2012!
Get ready for a fun 24 days with no chocolate necessary! As is customary, we start with a day of free 7″s (you pay postage).
Banquet prides itself as being more than your local record shop, taking an active role in music in many different ways. However, the one thing we undeniably still are IS a record shop. Vinyl sales have nearly tripled for us over the past year but inevitably sometimes we order too many of some releases. That doesnt mean they’re all bad records. But we need to make some space and give a loving home to some great releases. We’re giving away 2000 free 7″s via 200 10×7″ sets. These include exclusives, record store day releases, defunct bands or just great songs that not enough people picked up on. They are, in the main, from the indie and punk worlds.
