2012/13 - PETER PARKER'S ROCK N ROLL CLUB
TOR Records can now be found on line at the British Library. The label was formed primarily to release records by Peter Parker's Rock N Roll Club. They played a short gig in the shop in September 2012 which blew me away so we kind of started the label over a cup of tea afterwards. No big plans or vision, just the need to get this music out there. We released "Straight To Vinyl" in February 2012 on red vinyl and it was picked up by Wolfgang Doebeling of Radioeins, Berlin who played it a lot of his "Roots" show. The red vinyl pressing sold out in weeks and we then reissued it on black vinyl.
The EP followed, this was released for Record Store Day 2013 and it was nice to get it approved and see it alongside Pink Floyd and Paul McCartney on the list of special releases. In order to bring their music up to date, and following quite a few requests from customers, we decided to release The Revox Tapes in the Summer of 2013. This was their very first recording recorded on a Revox Reel to Reel in Peter's flat in 2011. This was out first 10" album. Sakura provided the perfect artwork in one of her paintings of the band and we plagerised the first Little Richard album for the rear sleeve. Three great records that we are very proud to have been associated with.
