I’m funding the project because of Tom. He diverted me from a predictable, narrow but extremely cosy musical path when I was a teenager, and rolled me about in the dirt on the side of the road, with the help of that bounder John Kay. I’ve never forgiven them for it, and I certainly won’t forget – I have to listen to really weird shit all the time now. I want this film made as a warning to others. I wish you all the luck in the world Jeanie and crew.

The first and last records I bought:
First: The first record I ever bought was Prince Charming by Adam Ant. It didn’t have much effect on me. I am no-one’s idea of a dandy.
Last: The last record I ever bought was something to do with Tom: the first release on his record label, I think. It was by Space Raiders, and had a hairy cover. Tom might remember the name of the tune, but I can’t and I don’t have the record with me these days.

Good luck with the production, I’m really looking forward to seeing the film.

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.
