'The Vinyl Revival and the Shops That Made It Happen' Evening with Graham Jones

Updated: Mar 29, 2023

On Wednesday 5th April 2023 at 7:00pm, a special evening will take place with author Graham Jones who will showcase a documentary 'The Vinyl Revival', based on his book 'The Vinyl Revival and the Shops That Made it Happen', a guide to independent record shops in the UK that sell new vinyl. The evening will include a fun quiz with great prizes, Vinyl & CD giveaways, book signings, comic tales from the crazy world of record retailing and much more! All proceeds will go to support the Nordoff Robins Music Therapy Charity.

One of the founders of Proper Music Distribution, 'Graham should be in the Guinness World Records for visiting more record shops than any other person'.

The true story of Graham’s time

spent working in and around the world of independent record retailing is every bit as colourful, funny, strange, and occasionally sad as any fictional yarn.

'The Vinyl Revival' is a fascinating 43-minute documentary exploring the renaissance in all things vinyl; It includes interviews from Nick Mason (Pink Floyd), Philip Selway (Radiohead), Ade Utley (Portishead), Joel Gion (The Brian Jonestown Massacre), The Orielles, CASSIA and others.

It charts the amazing revival of vinyl over the past several years. The film explores the whys and hows with industry pundits, artists, record shop owners, vinyl fans and many more. Directed and produced by Pip Piper, we hear from passionate new record shop owners as well the established die-hards still going and thriving. The film discusses the importance of the record shop and vinyl as a whole. We answer the why's of vinyl's revival, the human need for belonging, the love of history and the stories of how the humble little record shop has shaped so many lives. Record collecting has lost its image as a hobby for middle-aged men and become instead a pursuit of the most fashion-conscious consumer. Will it last? What is the future for record shops when vinyl becomes less fashionable? Why are we in danger of another record shop decline? Why must we support these bastions of culture? Watch 'The Vinyl Revival' to find out!

Tickets are extremely limited and are available in-store for £5

Doors open at 7PM and the event will last for approximately 2.5 hours
