sudden death of stars inside out

Sudden Death of Stars is a French band formed in 2009; “Inside Out” is the first single off of their forthcoming album, All Unrevealed Parts of the Unknown. “Inside Out” is a quirky, feel-good surf rock song.

The smallest record shop’s in the world happened last week.

Thank you and a big Black Country thumbs up to everyone who visited, whether Ample Play/Cornershop fans or locals who came to see what the happening was about.

The idea behind the pop up shop and indeed behind the label is E. F. Schumacher's Small Is Beautiful: A Study of Economics As If People Mattered.

The people certainly mattered and we enjoyed everyone’s company throughout the sunshiny day.

We at ample play records have decided to blow up a pop up shop to bring more satisfaction to people’s everyday living, and much relief to their sound system units.  It is the smallest shop in the world, and doubles up as the smallest art centre in the world, and triples up as the smallest disco in the world.  The inspiration is E. F. Schumacher's Small Is Beautiful: A Study of Economics As If People Mattered.  We will be selling ample play and non ample play music, in the heart of Stoke Newington.  So for bargains and a great day out please join us, pop in.

Ample Play was set up by avid record collectors Tjinder Singh and Ben Ayres from deeply respected UK band Cornershop, as a vehicle for their own music. Over the last 3 years, Ample Play has gone on to collaborate with other labels such as Burger Records and Trouble In Mind, and developed a celebrated roster, which includes Nashville’s The Sufis and The Paperhead, Portland’s Jack Lewis and Sudden Death of Stars from France.
