Spring?!

Well, it's apparently, officially Spring - not that you could tell from the dreary weather we are currently experiencing - feels like an extension to what has already felt like a long and arduous Winter... Still, not all bad - perfect time to kick back at home and enjoy some of the recent releases and reissues we have had instore, or even to dig into our extensive selection of secondhand LPs, CDs and DVDs - we also have plenty of posters to brighten up your walls (new selection just received and processed, in time for the school holidays!!), and tee shirts (good for 'layering'...) - will ende ..read more

We have a HUGE array of DVDs for you to dip into - never seen House Of Cards, Game Of Thrones, The Sopranos, The Wire et al? Well, for starters - I envy you.

And then, just like that, we were gearing up and into another Christmas - how did that happen?! Doesn't seem like that long since we were recovering from the last one...! It's been a funny old year, all felt a bit stop start and like it has never really hit its stride, but - sometimes it's just a bit like that, eh? What we DO know is that, once more, we have been grateful for the loyalty and support of our terrific customers, both local, national and international, and that it has been a tremendous pleasure sharing the gift of music with you all, discovering new sounds and being reminded of ..read more

Howdy, everybody, sorry we've been a bit quiet on here - busy, and a bit disrupted over these Winter months! But now, as they say, Spring is (almost!) sprung, and it's onwards and upwards...! Got a terrific haul of shiny new vinyl in from the US, was meaning to post pics, but it took a hammering over the weekend - do let us know if there is stuff you are looking for, our US import service is now actually pretty terrific (takes less than a week, and we do an order about every 3 weeks). We have also churned through a bunch of great quality second hand vinyl and CDs - great titles, great conditi ..read more
