"Yes, yes, I know. It's easier to download music, and probably cheaper. But what's playing on your favourite download store when you walk into it? Nothing, that's what. Who are you going to meet in there? Nobody. Where are the notice boards offering flatshares and vacant slots in bands destined for superstardom? Who's going to tell you to stop listening to that and start listening to this? Go ahead and save yourself a couple of quid. The saving will cost you a career, a set of cool friends, musical taste and, eventually, your soul.
Record stores can't save your life. But they can give you a better one."
Thank YOU for buying this album and supporting Debut.
In my years as a regular gig-goer, Barnsley has always had a strong music scene, but in recent years it is safe to say that it has become richer than ever.
I’d travel miles to tell people I am proud to be part of it.
What you have downloaded is a snapshot of The Scene in 2015. All of the tracks contained on the Debut White & Debut White albums have been kindly donated by local artists with a passion for music and The Scene.
I personally would like to thank them all for answering my call to help to support our Tarn’s independent record shop, by creating this amazing compilation. It’s been nothing short of a pleasure to curate.
Be part of The Scene. Support your local record shop.
