MICHAEL KURTZ, RSD: “A film that is as much about what it means to be human as it is about a record shop.” Co Founder Record Store Day

“Sound It Out tickled me at times, made me sad sometimes, and even shocked my senses a bit. It’s a film that is as much about what it means to be human as it is about a record shop. I was changed after I saw it.”
Michael Kurtz, Co-founder – Record Store Day

    Can’t wait to see the film! I run VinylVenue an online record shop. I’d love it to be a physical shop where people could pop in an browse and chat, but running a shop just isn’t viable these days, unless you are very lucky with location. It’s a massive shame.

    I applaud what record store day is about… but why exclude anyone with an online presence that brings in the majority of there income? I don’t get it! Times have change, whether we like it or not. Surely the idea is to promote companies with a genuine interest in the music over the giants like Tesco.

    I’d like our record shop to be a community, just like the real thing…. Any thoughts on this are welcome.

    Michael Kurtz… I’d love to hear what you have to say, maybe a short comment here, or on my blog?

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.
