First of all, that is a badass logo. Second of all, Record Store Day has exploded since its inception in 2007. As a writer for Cover Me, last year I got to see first hand how many freakin' covers are released that day in honor of independent record stores. In keeping with the tradition of hard rocking Record Store Day Ambassadors (Jesse Hughes of The Eagles of Death Metal, Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, and Ozzy), 1000 Recordings artist Iggy Pop has been named for 2012. In his own, amazing, words, "I feel like a representative from some exotic jungle full of life and death and sex and anger, called upon to wear a leopard skin and translate joy to the world of the dead." Exactly!
