Blackmarket...

Yeah I know crazy huh? Actually go into an actual shop, speak to a person and pay them cash?

Whatever next?
Ha Ha :lol: Too true. I use all the record shops around Soho. So:
Blackmarket
Sister Ray
Rough trade
Release the groove
And yes Zavvi and HMV.

Yeah, it's all about Berwick Street innit - Sister Ray is particularly good, especially now that they've moved into the old Selectadisc building, that was the bomb back in the day.

I defy anyone on this site to spend an afternoon down Berwick street (and Blackmarket on D'Arblay) and not spend all the money they had intended to spend, and more, it rules down there...

Actually to be honest, now that everyone is buying records online small independent record shops are struggling to survive, so please - if you can, go visit one of the above mentioned (or your local) independent record shop and spend your money with them, get to know the people there, talk to them, they'll want to help you out so will start to get things in for you, save things for you etc, basically will help you get what you need in a way that a website won't.

I went to uni in Colchester, got good mates with the guys at the local independent record shop, next thing I just had to walk in and it'd be like "Greg! I've put these aside for you 'cos I knew you'd be into them" never missed a single tune in them days
