Sad times indeed
we'll soon have 3 HMVs (4 if you wanna count fopp) within less than 5minutes of each other
the new releases section seemed a bit thin, didn't have what I was after a lot of the time.
There's a few other independents still around, but most of them look like dance specialists, or just plain a bit beardy.
is the same from my recent experience - can't see it lasting much longer.
this makes me really sad. Many a good hour or two in there looking through vinyl and cds :(
should buy it and turn it into a coffee shop/record store, in store performance venue (pre social/rock city gigs) ala pure groove/mono
I can't believe this, i've only recently started making trips over to nottingham to shop there, but used there website for quite a while, the death of another independent store. Very Sad.
it always seems to be quite busy upstairs.
felt like I grew up in this shop and it's the best thing about Nottingham by far.
No no no no no, not now!
I've only known about Selectadisc for a few months... I was hoping it would be a long and happy relationship.
and it only really leaves avalanche in edinburgh and rough trade in london in terms of independent record stores on that sort of scale. and rough trade is something of an exception for various reasons.
it would be the end of independent record shops, there's none anymore within 30 miles of me. This is so sad
Bad news, many a happy memory/purchase, cracking selection of mags from the US, import cds. A proper record shop.
