  • Zen And The Art Of Record Collecting

    Leave a Comment

      We have been buying music collections off people for decades and as a rule we will buy in any piece of popular vinyl if it is in playable condition. Anybody who has been into our shop will see the amount of vinyl we have on display but may not realize we have crates of LP’s & CD’s stored out…

    This month it has been mainly “Metal LP’s” we have been able to fully recharge our heavy metal section, so much so that we had to move the section outside because we needed the extra space. We buy in lots of vinyl but it is unusual to get such a huge collection in such excellent condition, the chap in question…

  • The Inner Sleeve…. The 1980’s Now And Then

    Leave a Comment

      If the shop had a voice we suppose it would be a colourful mix of many sounds, and be constantly moving in and out of styles like a folk psych hip hop mix with progressive undertones and soulful sentiment. Or maybe a very geeky monologue about the importance of the matrix numbers in the Runoff of a record. So…

  • Don’t judge a book by its cover, but sometimes why don’t you?

    Leave a Comment

    When I’m browsing records it’s often the artwork that draws me in (no pun intended). There’s something about album art that I can’t resist, in my opinion there’s nothing more boring than picking up a record and seeing some second rate blandness (EVERY PHIL COLLINS RECORD FOR EXAMPLE). I know, you’re not supposed to judge albums by their art, but…

  • Are We About To See A Rise In Political and Protest Music?

    Leave a Comment

    Should music make you forget about your everyday worries, the troubles of the world and carry you to a safe house of solitude? Or should music grab you by the scruff of the neck, drag you kicking and screaming to the real issues?  Man.  I think it’s kind of a combination of both. They do say that music is inspired…

    I felt inspired to write a bit about Soundtracks, the source of the inspiration is a great Netflix show called Stranger Things Without spoiling the show for you it is a really well put together series that draws a lot of creative influences from 80’s cinema. Stranger Things has a very moody soundtrack and constantly gives you clues about the…

  • The Breakdown: Welsh Euro 2016 Tracks

    Leave a Comment

    We’re all feeling a bit patriotic this year following England’s humiliating defeat against Iceland on June 27. The real dragons are out, and they’re ready to breathe fire. Wales have certainly proved their determination for this year’s Euros, and with world-class Bale up front, there’s potential to go even further. Two of Wales’ most prestigious bands have showed their support…

  • Mix of the week…The Staff of Kellys Sŵn Festival mix.

    Leave a Comment

    A few years back in that memorable summer of 2013, Sŵn Festival asked their friends to make mixes that filled us with that special feeling that only music can. We dug through our record collections to choose a few choice cuts that we love to hear. We hope you do too. We are going to try to make this a…
