Record Store Day 2015 Spring King, Pulled Apart By Horses, Ekkah & more show DIY their favourite vinyl

As this year’s vinyl extravaganza approaches, we asked our favourite artists to dig into their collection.

Record Store Day (Saturday 18th April) is by and large a chance for music obsessives to grab something they might never have even imagined having in their collection. Whether it’s a surprise reissue or an unlikely collaborative split, those queues are for a reason - to get something unique.

Most RSD chat revolves around which exclusives are sweeping shops across the country. But this yearly celebration should also be an opportunity (like with every day of the year, etc. etc.) to value the treasures in existing collections. Vinyl’s Big Day Out, even if you’re not outside Rough Trade East from 6am onwards, Record Store Day doesn’t have to revolve around chasing the big guns.

Instead of getting DIY favourites to chat about which 2015 releases they’re excited about, we asked them to dig into their existing collections and pick out one treasured release. They were also asked to send a picture of their beloved favourite. Some followed the instructions perfectly - others, like Tarek Musa from Spring King, were kind enough to send us their entire collection (see above).
