A little UKR history for ya... Back in the day our sister store, Schoolkids Records owned by Curt Schieber, had a promotional entity called "No Other Presents." With the help of Tim Anstaett and his connection to Ivo at 4AD, Curt and No Other Presents were the promoters for the Cocteau Twins' first show in Columbus in 1985 at Newport Music Hall. The legacy and influence of Schoolkids is largely responsible for bringing Cocteau Twins to town and for building the music scene in Columbus. Now, Curt works with us at Used Kids Records where he continues to share his stories and knowledge and add to the culture of our community.
Please enjoy this news clip capturing the "Cocteau Fever" that hit Columbus in 1985 featuring Curt and Schoolkids... Rumor has it the sickness is still contagious to this day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gaOlNfC8_xQ&t=14s
