    The Vinyl Revival And The Shops That Made It Happen

      ‘The Vinyl Revival And The Shops That Made It Happen is the story of the vinyl revival through the eyes of those who made it happen, the independent record shops. It explains why more than a hundred more record shops have opened since 2009, and how others have gained the reward from their hard work. Budget turntables, manufactures, supermarkets, chain stores, clothes shops, pressing plants and even the government are among the many who have benefited from their efforts.

      Graham Jones has spent 32 years travelling the UK selling to independent record shops and visited more record shops than any other human. This book guides you around the record shops of the UK who sell new vinyl. He has gathered some fascinating and funny anecdotes told him by our much-loved record shop staff so that when you visit you will feel like you already know the characters behind the counters. It is perfect for vinyl fans to keep with them on their travels around the country.

      ** The record shop blown up by a bomb.
      ** The shop owner who sold his house to buy more vinyl.

      Energetic and raw electronix in the same style as their iconic first release. Tracks for dimly lit spaces, perhaps with a strobe, perhaps not. Definitely big at the Islington Mill / Gesamtkunstwerk frat parties. "Lou" is distorted to obvlivion, low kicks and fizzing hats joined by a undulating synthline, practically on the edge of collapse, all meet on a crisp distortion flatline, performed and recorded straight to cassette in one take. "Lou Gone Out" takes the same sonic ethos squashes the masters even more, creating a barely audible slice of tape hiss narcosis which only the real freaks need to apply for. Seriously, this is one of the straight up filthiest tracks I've ever had the joy to review - hats off lads! Finally, "See Through This" ends on a shimmering, icey green lake set in some sub-zero mountainside, suspended in time and existing on a spiritual plane. Out there muzik for out there people. Mastered & cut by Matt Colton.

      Live In France

      One time only fan club pressing of this Radio 4 "Live In France" LP. It was recorded live in Paris in the spring of 2003. The sound quality is great, in fact it sounds like it came straight off the board. There were 1000 pressed and when they are gone, that's more will follow.
