I funded the project as for most of my life vinyl I have treasured. My first single was the sugar hill gang – rappers delight when I was only 7yrs old. From there I collected a wide range of vinyl from different genres. I relate to the project as vinyl holds memories. It has something special that goes along side music it holds in its grooves. The memory of the song is matched with the crackle when you play vinyl. I can remember when scratches occured on the vinyl I possess and the parties that they have attended. The introduction for the film brought back my enthusiasm for vinyl especially seen as during the clip I saw a record that I would like!

The last records I purchased was Logical Progressions by LTJ Bukem, Black board jungle part 2 by Lee Scratch Perry among others. I rarely bought a single record at a time.

Unfortunately with a growing family and little space the dj decks had to eventually go. My wife purchased a single deck record player for me for our anniversary this year so all my carefully stored vinyl has been making a welcome comeback!

Glimmer Films in association with Sideshow present a film by Jeanie Finlay; SOUND IT OUT.

Over the last five years an independent record shop has closed in the UK every three days.

SOUND IT OUT is a documentary portrait of the very last surviving vinyl record shop in Teesside, North East England.

A cultural haven in one of the most deprived areas in the UK, SOUND IT OUT documents a place that is thriving against the odds and the local community that keeps it alive. Directed by Jeanie Finlay who grew up three miles from the shop.

A distinctive, funny and intimate film about men, the North and the irreplaceable role music plays in our lives.

High Fidelity with a Northern Accent.
