Record Store Day is a big deal for the indie retail marketplace.
To help celebrate, punk rock icon Iggy Pop has been named the ambassador of Record Store Day 2012, which will take place on April 21.
According to a Pop-penned post on RecordStoreDay.com, he is psyched about the gig. The post read as follows: "A person should have a personality. You won't get one dicking around on a computer. It helps to go somewhere where there are other persons. Persons who are interested in something you are. That's how a record store or any shop that's got some life to it should work... As Record Store Day Ambassador for 2012 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."
What are your plans for Record Store Day 2012?
