I'm off there tomorrow. Didn't Selectadisc close down?
It was supposed to reopen under new management, but as far as I'm aware then that's not actually happened yet. I'm not entirely sure there's anything great now. If you head up Mansfield Road then Anarchy Records is ok if you root around a bit, it's next to a good second-hand bookstore as well. There's a Fopp, but it's a bit wank.
great shop, although suffering a little bit recently... they used to have a fantastic New In section where you'd find choice gems (Hot Snakes - Suicide Invoice £3!) but it's gotten a bit stale in recent months... you're bound to find something interesting though.. they have tons of 7"s... and the couple who run it are great to chat to
there is good vibrations lower down mansfield road if you like hair metal and 70s stuff, but can occasionally find something genuinely good in there... there's robs records too but it's hardly worth a look in because you can't get through the door... and fopp is fine for new release CDs and back catalogue, although prices are creepin up
you can check the charity shops in sherwood too, usually have some good fare
But its all gone a bit poo really since selectadisc went
30th sep was the last day i think... unless somebody saved it
Mail order only.
the record section was all hair metal and prog.
i got This Nation's Saving Grace on cassette for like 50p though.
anarchy split up sections by genre (except new in) and i've never seen a cassette there
This Nation's Saving Grace, Lust For Life and a Bad Seeds album.
There's 3 HMVs in Nottingham, and they're all appalling! They bought the old zavvi site which has a huge basement, maybe a quarter of that is CDs, the selection is tiny, no better than the smaller shop in the Vic centre.
theres a really nice one in Sutton though
is really great on radford road, for all your new & old dance/electronica stuff.
They dont have a website but heres a link to there discogs site http://www.discogs.com/seller/TANMUSHIMUSHI
