Record shops you have known and loved

Soulsense remind me, was that Aylesbury? I can’t remember

Soulsense was Luton, Spin-A-Disc Northampton. I seem to recall Parliament Records in Herts.

I had a love/hate relationship with Jellyjam in Brighton. Love because of all the cool music I’d discover. Hate because the fear and dread walking through the cool clothes shop, then upstairs to the record shop, wondering if my 16 year old self would be allowed access to such a place.

Also loved Ugly records, again in Brighton, a few years later.

He was rude. If you weren’t part of his preferred buyers gang he would often blank you or interact as tho you’d just pissed in his tea.

Ooh. Which year?

Ah, 5 years later than I was there

James Bond date format. Like it.
