I heard about the project via the lovely people from Hello Thor and thought it was an amazing idea.

I grew up in a little town where there used to be 4 record shops. There is only one of them left but it is really struggling and might have to close down at the beginning of next year which I think is really sad. There is something really special about records and as much as I love the digital age and being able to walk down the street with my iPod, there isn’t anything like getting home and switching a record player on. I hope you get all the funding necesary to finish your documentary.

I can’t remember the first record I actually bought but the last one was Anxieteam – Let’s Eat Soya / Lonely In The Digital World.

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.
