Buy it

I funded this project because i think the local record shop is a vital part of people’s lives that is rapidly disappearing. the hours I’ve spent in record shops over the years and the pleasure I’ve taken in buying and listening to the music I’ve bought makes this vanishing treat something that needs to be recorded for posterity. Plus if the documentary raises the profile of tom’s shop then that’s even better! As long as he doesn’t raise his prices!!

The first and last records I bought:
First: Young Parisians by Adam and the Ants
Last: Warehouse Songs & Stories by Husker Du

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.
