What about Mr. Sifter's from the Oasis song?
one of the most influential record shops in the country - Eastern Block, Manchester. http://www.manchesterad.com/img/areaguide/nq/EASTERN_BLOC_2.jpg
yes yes yes, this is an outstanding shop! they even had a Being 747 record last time i checked! Having a war of a time keeping the place running. Hope they make it through the recession...
Unfortunately, Beanos is due to close, the guy who owns it wants to turn it into smaller retail units so no more records there. In fact, I've been offered about 5000 of their 7"s.
Domchinchilla is ON FIRE.
no, ON FIRE changed their name to HELHESTEN, who share the other side of the split 12" with CHOPS on upset the rhythm!
I spent many a happy saturday hanging around Eastern Bloc, waiting for Graeme Park or Dave Haslam or someone to turn up and go through the new records, it was the nearest us 12 year old kids got to being in the hacienda in those days.
good idea for a thread!
this is ace....
support the cause.
not the likeliest name for an indie music outlet! pretty good though!
Is there a good Independent Record Store in Bradford?
Windows is primarily an instrument and sheet music shop. I wasn't aware that they sold CDs at all, but apparently they do.
It's been a few years since I was in there so I suppose it's possible that it's changed a lot, though I find it hard to believe that an established shop would move towards CD retailing at the moment.
Word on the street is that Selectadisc in Nottingham is due to reopen. Hoorah!
Cob Records is Porthmadog (North Wales) is excellent. It smells like cross between a museum and my dad's old whisky cupboard.
There's Steel Wheels in Newcastle too
that sounds ace! Everywhere should smell as good as that!
There is a book called "The Last Shop Standing" which is about the demise of independent record stores, it's interesting and funny. However ultimately depressing for any record collector.
Also to add to your list
Leigh Records - Southend-On-Sea
The Record Museum - Southend-On-Sea
The Record Shop - Southend-On-Sea
Bubblegum Records - Southend-On-Sea
Minus Zero 2 - Camberwell, London
Does anyone else agree that Leeds is terrible for second hand record stores?
Are there any I don't know about that are in the surrounding area?
One just opened in Birds Yard (I think) LS2, called re:chord, havent been in but bought from their amazon. Came quick, pretty cheap.
