The Mighty Boosh have reunited for the first time in five years to become Record Store Day 2019 ambassadors.
The comedy duo are part of Record Story Day‘s 12th birthday and are doing their bit to keep the spirit of independent record shops alive.
To take part in the occasion, the Mighty Boosh will release their radio series on vinyl for the very first time. We’re told that the shows will be put out on three pieces of coloured 180g vinyl.
“People that work in record shops are often obsessed with vinyl and music and bands and can steer you in the right direction and tell you about things that you would never know about,” Noel Fielding said. “Whereas you can’t do that on the internet. It’s not possible. You want some vinyl expert to tell you about a record you’ve never heard of. That’s the beauty of it,” he added.
Julian Barratt added: “We are approaching singularity, when computers will overtake and replace us. Therefore, it suddenly felt prescient to outwit them and somehow save our precious early recordings onto a format that the dawning artificial intelligences will not see as a threat.”
He continued: “In the feint hope that one day, thousands of years from now, when the human race is decimated and bereft, its ephemeral digital archive wiped by the powerful shockwaves of the ‘magneto-pulse’, a solitary humanoid survivor, scavenging and in the dark tunnels beneath the humming glistening exo-skin of the earth… will discover this disc abandoned in a cave, and trace its long fingernail across the patterned surface only to drop in shock as it hears my rich and resonant voice echoing through the cave.”
