Buy it

I love film and I love music – so the two combined, together with the subject of the closure of a vinyl record shop was a winner for me. Nowadays I tend to buy music online (although I still like to own a physical object which is then ripped to mp3), but I have many happy memories of flicking through vinyl sleeves, looking for that 12″ piece of artwork that might tempt me to try a new sound, as well as looking for a special price for an offering from a familiar band.

The first and last records I bought:
First: The first vinyl I bought was as a child in the 70s and it was a second-hand album – Monster Mash by Bobby ‘Boris’ Pickett and the Cryptkickers.
Last: The last vinyl I bought was bought second-hand on ebay and was Does This Mean You’re Moving On? by The Airborne Toxic Event.

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.
