Our lovely anonymous donor says…
“I funded Sound It Out because it reminded me of how much music can mean to people, how record stores can be havens for misfits, and more importantly how much the inner lives of others can teach us about ourselves. Not to mention how economic deterioration affects communities.”
The first record was (showing my age…) Crosby Stills Nash and Young.  The most recent was King Creosote and John Hopkins, Diamond Mine.  Many other meanderings in between.
Formative record store – Ear ‘Ere Records in Lancaster, suppliers of great punk and reggae and probably much more besides during the 1970s.  Now defunct, I believe.
My local cinema is planning to show the  film!  Greenwich Picturehouse, take a bow…

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.
