About this item
Celebrating 25 years as Manchester’s leading independent record shop, this book asks ‘What makes Piccadilly Records so special?’
Whilst music is the heart of Piccadilly Records, the soul is most definitely the people.
Self-published by Piccadilly Records’ Michael and Gwen Riley Jones, this photo-book is a celebration of people, place and music.
Alongside current and ex-staff, the book features a host of Manchester musicians and DJs including Johnny Marr, Marc Riley, Tim Burgess and Duncan Wallis (of Dutch Uncles) and regular customers, all of whom have played an integral role in the history of the shop.
‘This book is a testament to the Piccadilly Records attitude to business. It’s not about just the staff who work there or the ‘pop’ stars and DJs that pass through. It’s about the music lovers that come in on a regular basis putting money through the tills and buying all those inspiring albums.” Richard Hector-Jones
