    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...

    :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
