Buy it

I funded the project as I’m not only a fan of music, but also of independent record shops. I find it sad that people feel the need to steal music nowadays, or worse, buy it from Tescos. Aside from a few second hand record stores, there isn’t a decent record store in Nottingham anymore. With that, the city hasn’t just lost a place to discover great new music, but also a place where like-minded souls could find refuge, whilst taking side-ways glances at what the other customers were buying.

The first and last records I bought:
First: Oasis – (What’s The Story) Morning Glory – I believe I bought it from Woolworths in Victoria Centre with a token I received for my birthday in 1995.

Last: Warpaint – The Fool – I purchased the lovely gatefold double vinyl from the Rough Trade website last week. Almost 15 years to the date of buying my first record.

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.
