And here’s an 2012 in-store performance by Wilco of War on War from the great 2002 album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. If you don’t know this album, run to your nearest record store as fast as you can and pick it up.
Carrer de les Stiges 9, El Raval, Barcelona
This is actually just steps away from Revolver Records, making your first left off of Carrerr dels Tallers. The shop is small, but has cool vinyl fairly priced and is run by a very nice guy.
While I also bought some nice 45 picture sleeves here, the real find (pictured on the wall above) is an EP of Los Salvajes (the Savages), a 60s garage punk outfit, with the snarling Es La Edad. I saw the sleeve on the wall, and the shop’s owner was happy to play it for me, and told me that the band hailed from Barcelona (which I hadn’t know). Quite happy with this one.
You can Los Salvajes – Es La Edad a listen on our Song of the Day.
Last but not least was
Wah Wah Records
Riera Baixa 14, El Raval, Barcelona Spain
This one is harder to find (if you’ve been to Barcelona you will know what I mean even though I gave you the street address) and is a few blocks away from the others. One of the guys shopping proclaimed it his favorite, so I had to check it out. It has a large selection, with two big rooms, with blues, soul and jazz in the back. If there’s an old record you want, that you’ve been dying to have, this is the place to look for it. But don’t expect it to be cheap!
