Hey everyone, apparently it's been difficult to find info about our SF store.

Anyway, here's all the info. See you down at the shop!

We are very happy to FINALLY announce the location of our new 1234 Go Records SF location! We'll be located at 1034 Valencia St. co-inhabiting the space with Mission legends Lost Weekend Video. They'll be providing you with over 27,000 movies (many of which are not online) and we'll be supplying you with the best music we can muster!
LWV is currently raising money to make this transition as well as to open a new comedy club/video store in Oakland! Check out their website at ...http://www.lostweekendvideo.com for details on that and we're still selling t-shirts with either or Oakland or SF logo's on them at the link HERE . If you've got a little extra cash around we'd both love your support! We still can't count on the banks to fund the businesses we want to see so it's up to us to put our money where our hearts are. Don't have any extra cash? That's alright just come down and support us in person or share this link, tell a friend, or yell out your window!
Our super soft opening should be on April 1st. We will for sure be open on April 4th at 11am and our good friends Hella Vegan Eats will be on hand selling some of the best vegan food the bay area has to offer out in front of the shop. The Super crazy GRAND opening will take place on Record Store Day (April 18th). Cosmic American "Voodoo Van" will be on hand that day to keep you from getting hangry while you're in line. Our SF store will have the same level of stock for RSD as our Oakland shop so you know we're going to do it right! See you guys then and thank you for your support!
Oh and we want to buy your Records and Tapes...and to a lesser extent your CD's! Before we officially open the shop in April we are buying every single day in our Oakland store (420 40th Street #5) from 11am to 8pm. If you have a ton of stuff we're also willing to make house calls. Hell, if enough of you who live in the west bay want us to we'll set up special days at the new location this month where you can bring stuff in! Help us open up with a bang! Reply here, direct message us or call us at the Oakland store 510-985-0325. The SF number won't be working until April 1st so don't try that one just yet!
PS: remember to follow @1234gorecordssf on instagram too!
We are proud to announce our first contribution to Record Store Day! After benefiting as a store for so long we've decided to give a little something back. We're releasing a limited 7" single for Buzzcocks! The tracks will be "The Way" from the album of the same title that we released last year and the previously unissued on vinyl B-Side "Generation Suicide"!
The cover art was done by world renowned artist Malcolm Garrett who was responsible for all the classic early album art for Buzzcocks. These will be limited to 1200 copies total. 900 copies on Blue vinyl and 300 on white that will only be available in our Oakland and SF stores on Record Store Day. We will mail order any extra copies left over after we close on that day.
Stores and distributors can order these directly from URP at http://www.urpdist.com/ they are they most direct way to get these although other distros will have them.
The band will also be making some US appearances right around RSD too!
APRIL 16 - New York City/Irving Plaza
APRIL 17 - Asbury Park/The Stone Pony
APRIL 18 - Baltimore/Baltimore Sound Stage...
See http://www.buzzcocks.com/site/livedates.html for ticket links.
More dates are coming and will be announced soon!
So bug your local stores for this release every chance you get, go see the band if you're in the area and thanks again for your support!
RSD this year is going to be bigger than ever! We will be open in both locations from 8am to 8pm. In Oakland we'll have Coffee and Donuts for you early risers while supplies last and Hella Vegan Eats will be on hand selling some of the bay area's best vegan food for Breakfast and Lunch! We're still working on comparable things for SF so we'll see what shakes out. Both stores will have INCREDIBLE stock. As anyone who has been here before knows, we go all out. We usually have more than the big stores and it's very well organized and very well worth the wait in line. Stay tuned for more details!
HUGE NEWS! We are opening a second location in SF on April 1st! No foolin'! More details next week but for now we're trying to raise a little money ahead of then by selling some Oakland and SF logo shirts, hoodies, slipmats and tote bags available. All prices include shipping and will ship at the end of the month. Head over to our webstore by clicking HERE. Don't need something with our logo on it? We also need your help bringing in stock. We are looking to buy Vinyl and tapes. Collections or a handful of stuff doesn't matter to us. Bring us all that stuff you haven't had luck with at swaps, stuff that's gathering dust in your house or things you're sick of looking at and get cash or trade! We buy every day 11am to 8pm in our Oakland shop. Thanks everyone!
Starting February 1st we will be expanding our hours to 11am to 8pm every day! We hate to close the door on you guys coming in at 7pm after you get off work or before you head to Homeroom or Hog's Apothecary so we're giving you a little extra time. Thank you for your continued support. Some places are chopping hours and we're so grateful to be able to expand because you're coming out to see us.
We are incredibly honored to announce that we will be releasing the new Buzzcocks album "The Way" here in North America.

These 10 tracks penned by the groups long standing core of Pete Shelley and Steve Diggle were recorded this year in London, and were produced by the band and Dave M Allen (best known for his production work with The Cure, Depeche Mode and Neneh Cherry).

We are very proud to announce that Twin Steps are official members of the 1-2-3-4 Go! Records family now! We fell head over heals in love with their truly impressive live show and uncanny ability to infuse elements of classic soul, pop, and experimental rock 'n' roll. Fans of surfy guitar licks, syrupy '60's pop melodies with intricate drum beats, and yelping harmonies need apply!
To kick things off we've got a brand new 7" single called "Plague Songs" coming out August 13th and a very limited cassette release that has the two songs from the 7" paired with their 10" EP "Serial Parade" and a special unreleased bonus track to boot!

We're extremely proud to announce that we're releasing TWO Zero Boys 7"s in June. The first is a reissue of their KBD stone classic "Livin' In The 80's". Still one of the most sought after singles in all of US punk history, routinely fetching $600 to $800. Zero Boys came from what most in the early punk world would consider absolutely nowhere, Indiana. On the strength of their self released debut 7" (Livin' In The 80's) and their Nimrod Records issued debut LP (Vicious Circle) they broke through that land locked and corn bordered land in to the consciousness of every self respecting punk at the time and that still echoes today. Secretly Canadian reissued Vicious Circle as well as a compilation of rare early material on the "History Of..." LP a few years back making the bulk of their early catalog available again. With their blessing we're batting a little clean up by making this classic single available again on the format it was intended to be heard on.
The second single contains the first new Zero Boys material in 20 years! Pairs nicely with the "Livin' In The 80's" reissue in terms of speed and tone exhibiting the more KBD punk rock and roll tendancies of that very early period rather than the speed and angst of the Vicious Circle. A great return to early form!
The band is taking these songs and their classics on tour this summer including several dates with Night Birds! They're starting with the South and East Coast with the West to follow soon.
