I wanted to help fund the project to help ensure that Jeanie can be on my panel at SXSW 🙂

The first record I ever bought was “Beauty and the Beat” by The Go-Go’s, though I’m sure my parents actually paid for it.

The last vinyl record I bought was an album by The Recoys. The band had already broken up and the members had gone on to form more commercially successful bands like The Walkmen and The French Kicks, but they did a reunion show in 2003 and released an album called “The Rekoys” which pulled together songs from an EP and other songs they had never released. At the time, they ONLY sold it on vinyl. I didn’t even have a record player at the time, so I had to go buy one before I could listen to it.

The last CD I bought was the self-titled album by Broken Bells. I got it after several of my friends said it was one of their favorite new albums of the year. I don’t like to buy digital downloads because I like having the physical media (even though I live in small apartment, and physical media is kind of taking over all of my space!)

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.
