Flashback Records, now with three branches in London, will celebrate their 20th birthday at The Lexington next month

20 years ago, Mark Burgess founded record shop Flashback Records at its original location of Essex Road in Islington, and the store still stands there today, alongside two further Flashback branches in Crouch End and Shoreditch.

To celebrate the passing of two decades since Flashback first opened at Essex Road, the shop will host a birthday party at The Lexington on October 7. A number of Flashback staff members will be supplying music, while psychedelic band Dead Coasts will play live with support from Deathcount in Silicon Valley's Andi Nixon and Lindsay Corstorphine of Cold Pumas and Sauna Youth, who will pair up for some live analogue synth experimentations.

Red Horses Of The Snow will play "ethereal alternative rock" and Ace of Wands promise a "wall of noise" to complete the bill. You can find more information, including the all-important ticket links, by just heading here. Keep an eye out for Flashback founder Matt Burgess appearing on a special edition of The Quietus Hour very soon too.
