I really don’t remember first record I bought – think it was a collect crisp wrappers and get a single from top 40 or something, don’t remember last either – be some CD for the kids to dance around to: absolute kids or something naff. Moved to Sweden 1998 and haven’t seen new vinyl on sale since. Don’t have a life anymore. Found out via my sister who does have a life.

I’m interested coz i loved the days when you could go into a record store, flick through the indie bins, could go to the shop owner and say i heard something last night on the radio – sounded like a plane crashing and a soundtrack to a charlie chaplin film, and he would say – yes, I know it – here it is. Or just know which label someone was on, point out other customers who had bought the same records as you. etc etc. The family feeling. It was great.

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.
