THERE used to be one rite round the corner but shut down
i think because a lack of funding..

net shopping is killing the high street trade.

I got one in my area little market stall sells cd packs, tickets and has new releses on vinyl. Part from that i go up London Blackmarket Records and HMV. Love going in record shop picking what i want and having listen.

We have quite a few in manchester.. Eastern Bloc, Reflex, Vinyl Exchange, Fat City, Piccidly Records, I think theres a few more aswell... Eastern Bloc and Vinyl Exchange are the only decent ones for buying Dnb tho... Eastern bloc gets all the new promos and has a big selection, but Vinyl Exchange always has hard to find classics in... i.e. The Nine etc...

banquet records in kingston(y)

:word:

less than 5 mins walk from my flat :lol:

the HMV in kingston stopped selling vinyl about 6 months ago, was shit in there anyway, but i asked them where the closest place to get tunes was and they said i'd have to go to HMV in Uxbridge or Oxford St. which i thought was bang out of order considering there are independent stores in the area...

It is really bad that record shops are closing down-selectadisk is closing in Nots. Got some half price goods then the man counted it up wrong on the till and charged me less again :)

Doesn't affect me though as I love OhMyGosh, never went to Selectadisk much

Funky Monkey's basically right next to the Ice Stadium on Goose Gate. Just type funky monkey notts into Google Maps and you'll see it :D
