As a filmmaker and vinyl lover, how could I not be part of Sound It Out. We need vinyl, we need record shops, we need shops that are part of a community, that understand the beauty of artefact and the power of music and literature, cinema, art. This film is needed to spread the word to people who may not yet realise the importance and beauty and power of music, vinyl, record shops and their ilk.

The first and last records I bought:
The first vinyl record I recall buying with my own money was Zooropa by U2
Last: was the brilliant comeback album Losing Sleep by Edwyn Collins.

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.
