Why I funded SOUND IT OUT? Partly because it is a great idea, partly because of knowing you both, partly because I’m a vinyl record addict and party because I’m from the north (Newcastle) – so it resonates in lots of ways.
The first and last record I bought.
First album – Stiff Little Fingers – Hanx!
Last record – Tony Allen with Afrika 70 – Progress (reissue LP) – brought yesterday, I’m afraid to say online
Two of the most important record shops in my were,
Steel Wheels, Newcastle – where I brought my first record and many afterwards too
Selectadisc, Nottingham – where I spent most of my money as a teen through to an adult until it very sadly closed

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.
