MORE THAN MUSIC is a worldwide memory bank of the record stores that changed our lives.

It's a place to express the sentiment at the heart of the film SOUND IT OUT that "records hold memories" and it's about so much 'more than music'.

A project by Jeanie Finlay

Built by Gareth Howell

Over the last five years over 500 record stores have closed in the UK alone.

Celebrate the shops that are still going strong or mark the passing of your favourite shop by making sure your iconic record store is included.

discEach record icon represents a shop.

Browse the map and read about the shops and what they meant to people.
