Exclusive: Stream Three Record Store Gay Tracks


Fast becoming an Irish music institution Dublin’s Record Store Gay has some obvious added import this year ahead of the forthcoming Marriage Referendum.

Now in its fourth year, the self-proclaimed celebration of music and diversity will host a mini-music festival, poster exhibition and pop-up music shop for international Record Store Day tomorrow at Dublin’s Outhouse LGBT Community Resource Centre.

Hosted in association with Little Gem Records, the annual Record Store Gay CD covers compilation will also be released on the day, featuring some excellent tracks from the likes of Hi Fashion, Kate’s Party, I Heart The Monster Hero, Florence Olivier, Katherine Lynch & Switzerland, Patrick Kelleher, Gross Net, The Late David Turpin, Brian Conniffe, Gar Cox, Fierce Mild, Feather Beds, GODHATESDISCO, Laura Ann Brady and more.

Having had a good couple of listens to the compilation, we selected Patrick Kelleher, Gross Net and I Heart The Monster Hero’s respective (equally sublime) covers of Arthur Russell’s ‘Oh Fernanda Why’, Madonna’s ‘Justify My Love’ and Andrew Gold’s ‘Thank You For Being a Friend’ respectively. Stream them below.

RSG runs from 1pm to 10.30pm at Outhouse. Go here for the Facebook event page.
