Record Store Day, the annual jamboree for vinyl junkies, returns tomorrow, and Southsea’s Pie & Vinyl shop has pulled together a full day of live music to help celebrate the event.

As part of the Castle Road fete, which will see many of the street’s independent traders getting into the party spirit, the live music begins at midday when folk troupe Moulettes take the stage.

They will be followed by Emily Barker, Curl, Scott Matthews, Traams and Kassassin Street, among others, until 8pm.

Steve Courtnell, co-owner of Pie & Vinyl, says: ‘We’ve got about 1,500 records in for the day – the list of releases this year is enormous. It can be a bit of a lottery trying to predict what’s going to be popular, hopefully we’ve got it right.

‘It already seems like this year is going to be the biggest yet – there’s been lots of coverage nationally, and people have been asking me about it everywhere I go. Last year there were people queuing from about 5.30pm the evening before.

‘We’ll be open again at 6am on Saturday, when we’ll have our famous breakfast pie available.’
