Friday is Rock'n'Roll London Day: Then Saturday is #RecordStoreDay 10th Anniversary!By Lwblog @londonwalks
Friday is Rock'n'Roll London Day! Join the Rock'n'Roll London walk this (and every Friday) afternoon at 2:00p.m meeting at Tottenham Court Road Station
Tomorrow is Record Store Day 2017.
(Of course every day is Record Store Day, they're just making a fuss about it tomorrow is all.)
To mark the occasion, here are five London record stores for your delectation - the first part of the post is adapted from an earlier post that appeared as part of my Cartoon & Comic Book Tour Of London series…
1. Alan's Records, East Finchley
Support your local record shop. Support MY local record shop too! Alan's Records in East Finchley…
My last purchase there was this Motown gem…
… which featured on this blog just a couple of weeks ago.
Alan's Records also features in T.J Bird's lovely comic book Rock & Pop…
Rock and Pop by Tim Bird is about the how the commonplace is rendered elegiac by the presence of music.
It has my very favorite things in it: cartoons, music, London and, best of all, daughters.
For anyone who has ever loved a song, this lovely musical autobiography will strike a chord.
Here's Alan's cameo appearance…
You can buy Rock & Pop and all of Tim Bird's other comic creations at his website www.timothybird.co.uk/shop/
2. Rat Records, Camberwell
Support my ex-local record shop! When I lived in Forest Hill, Rat Records (GREAT name!) was the nearest and best place to buy second-hand vinyl.
In a further comic book foot note, Rat Records makes a tiny cameo appearance in my own Rock'n'Roll London Comic Book – issue 1 starring Pink Floyd – on the page dealing with Camberwell School of Art…
You can keep up with Rat Records on Facebook HERE. And here's my very fave review of Rat Records, taken from that FB page…
The next three choices can all be found along the route of the Rock'n'Roll London Walk this (and every Friday) afternoon…
3. Reckless Records, Soho
4. Sister Ray, Soho
5. Sounds of the Universe, Soho
Happy record shopping!
Here's the trailer for the Rock'n'Roll London Walk which meets at 2pm Tottenham Court Road station every Friday.
