The Chapman Family

TRACKS: A Certain Degree and The Sound of the Radio.

The Chapman Family’s music to us is the sound of growing up in the North East. It’s the sound of driving around Teesside and looking out at dinosaurs and old industry and loving it and feeling unease with it.

We love the tracks in the film – as soon as they were laid in the edit they felt immediately right, at home.

Seek them out and listen to everything they’ve done. Now.

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.
