So it was with great delight, intrigue and a freshly paid credit card (on David Cameron's advice..) that we visited Sound It Records in Stockton yesterday.
Having watched Jeanie Finlay's beautiful documentary about the last remaining record shop in Stockton many times, it was with an eery sense of familiarity that we entered and met the regulars and perused the vast and diverse selection of vinyl.
During our time there, two stars of the film came in to feed their habit for 12"s serving to galavanise what the film so beautifully shows; this is more than just a record shop, it's a place to spend time, immerse yourself in the place and chat about all those records that mean so much to people, both collectively and individually.
Suffice to say we left with a bag of records ranging from new releases (Girls - Father, Son, Holy Ghost) to classics (Devo - Are We Not Men?) and a small dent to our personal finances.
Well worth it!
