TINK! Records werd eind jaren tachtig opgericht door Joseph Salvador. Jaren later maakte zijn zoon Alex een doorstart onder de naam Tomorrow Is Now, Kid!, en aanstaande zaterdag viert dit label haar vijfjarig bestaan. Dat doen ze groots in hun thuisbasis Studio 80, met alle residents.

Almost 800,000 records have already been sold in the first nine months of this year
Vinyl is the format that just doesn’t know when to quit, and through sheer resilience and a bit of hipster credo, vinyl album sales are on course to sail past the million mark in the U.K.
The British Phonograph Institute (BPI), the body that tracks album and single sales, said its figures showed that almost 800,000 vinyl albums had been sold in the U.K. for the first nine months of 2014, significantly ahead of last year’s nine month total of 780,674.
The BPI said that vinyl sales could pass the million mark this year, the first time that has happened since 1996, when 1,083,206 vinyl albums were sold.
A spokesperson for the BPI said: “Vinyl may once have been considered a byproduct of a bygone era, but it is now well and truly a flourishing format making a comeback in a digital age. In an increasingly-digitized world, it appears that music fans still crave a tangible product that gives them original artwork, high audio quality and purity of sound.”
