Buy it

I had to support this project because record shops are a sadly dying breed. I have spent many an hour flicking thru records in such shops, looking for that elusive bargain or rare copy, getting tips off the always knowledgeable owners about some new band that I must check out.

The First and last records I bought:
First: The first record I can remember owning was Happy Jack by The Who, bought for me by my older cousin. I was 6.
Last: The Grinderman 2 album which I love with the same burning intensity.

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.
