There’s nothing more engaging than passionate obsessives discuss their particular love – for music, especially. And there’s something about vinyl – crackle of the stylus…bumpity bumpity bump across the spinning disc…

Record shops and the records themselves should become all the better for making the transition from standard means of mass production to a niche movement of vinyl musos and earnest lovers of record. As long as they survive the transition. Hopefully this doc can help support that transition, help that niche become a self sufficient industry by rousing latent or forgotten passions across the nation. Huzzah!

And, either way, what better way to record this slice of culture than what promises to be a beautifully crafted documentary

The first and last records I bought:
First: John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, John Mayall Bluesbreakers
Last: The Rapture, K7 tapes”

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.
