Buy it

I love records and record shops – the thrill of the chase, the possibility of striking gold, the obsessive characters. This looks like a brilliant place to make a film – a whole world unto itself…all life is there. Also, I like that you’re doing something observational…good luck with it!

The first and last record I bought:
First: ‘Cars’ Gary Numan
last: ‘City Life’ The Blackbyrds, last year.

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.
